  • Application Area:RNA Isolation from Cultured C ells

"The kit is simple and fast. Just be sure to use the recommended initial input volume, otherwise it will clog. You will still isolate tons of material. I tried it with HCC and GBM cells, the RQNs were 9.9 and 8.2, respectively. From about 5 x 10^6 cells ~100ng/ul RNA was obtained."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:RNA isolation for Real Time PCR

"RNA isolation from tissue culture cells used to be my most hated protocol - labor intensive, tedious, and the horrible smell of the BME used in the protocol. This kit is much faster and easier and no horrible smells! Both the RNA yield and the real time results are just as good as our previous kit."

  • Application Area:Plant molecular biology

"Good price and easy to use, plus good quality. It is compatible to QIAGEN products RNeasy kit, but with reasonable price and equal quality. Especially the DNase is inexpensive and is included in the kit. This makes us so much easy to save time for ordering and save the money too. - We like it very much! Also, it is reliable and simple. No matter animal RNA, or plant RNA, or bacterial RNA, all could use with this one kit."

Great results. I will always go with Zymo product for my DNA/RNA extractions
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:RNA extraction for gene expression analysis

"RNA extraction with the Zymo kit is simple and straight forward protocol and people who have already been using column based RNA extractions will find that this kit offers the DNase enzyme and buffers within the kit and so value for the money for the same number of samples. Even better is the genomic DNA isolation columns which is only optional in certain kits (that is sold as a separate kit with a different product number) is sold with the standard isolation protocol which is another feature I really liked. I have been isolating RNA from primary mouse and human cells for over a decade for my research work. I got introduced to this Zymo product when our lab was struggling with funding but we still could not move out of the protocols that we were already doing for many years. I have to say that Zymo product saved us a lot of money and still got reproducible good data from our work. I have become an independent investigator and currently working with a small funding. I am glad that I knew about Zymo product and continuing to use this in my experiments. I have recommended to my colleagues also."

"Back in the day, we had to separate the aqueous phase from the samples. With the Zymo kit there is no step like this and the results are much better. We use the kit for miRNA, lncRNA and mRNA with good quality even with low concentrate RNA! And it's fast! "

The Quick-RNA MiniPrep kits are innovative product designed for the easy, reliable, and rapid isolation of DNA-free RNA from a wide range of cell (up to 107) and tissue samples (up to 50 mg).  The procedure combines a unique buffer system with Zymo-Spin column technology to yield high quality total RNA (including small RNAs 17-200 nt) in about 10 minutes.

The procedure is simple.  Add the provided RNA Lysis Buffer to a sample, and then purify the RNA using the Zymo-Spin Columns.  The result is highly-concentrated, DNA-free RNA that is suitable for RT-PCR, hybridization, sequencing etc.  In addition, the kit can be used for the enrichment of small and large RNAs into separate fractions.
