RNA Complete BCT by Streck Inc.

Manufacturer Streck Inc.  |   Model: 230460  |  Available Worldwide
RNA Complete BCT is a blood collection tube that maintains the draw time concentration of cell-free RNA and extracellular vesicles, such as exosomes, for up to 7 days at room temperature. Once isolated from stored plasma, the cfRNA and isolated EVs are suitable for many downstream applications, including ddPCR and NGS.

RNA Complete BCT is a direct draw blood collection tube that maintains the draw time concentration of cell-free RNA and extracellular vesicles, such as exosomes. The preservative stabilizes cfRNA and exosome counts for up to 7 days when stored at room temperature, maximizing plasma yield and minimizing hemolysis during storage. By limiting the degradation of white and red blood cells, the specialized chemistry provides sample integrity during storage, shipping, and handling of blood samples.

Once isolated from stored plasma, the cfRNA and isolated extracellular vesicles are suitable for many downstream applications including qualitative and quantitative real-time PCR, Droplet Digital PCR, next-generation sequencing, and Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis. RNA Complete BCT is compatible with commercially available plasma nucleic acid isolation kits: Qiagen QIAamp Circulating Nucleic Acid Kit, Norgen Plasma/Serum Circulating and Exosomal RNA Purification Kit, and Applied Biosystems MagMAX Cell-Free Total Nucleic Acid Isolation Kit.

Designed for next-generation sequencing workflows, RNA Complete BCT maintains draw-time cfRNA transcript levels in whole blood samples for use in transcriptome studies. It is compatible with standard low input RNA library prep kits: New England BioLabs NEBNext Ultra II Directional RNA Library Prep Kit and Illumina TruSeq RNA Library Prep Kit.

Features

  • 7-day sample stability when stored at room temperature
  • Compatible with commercially available total plasma nucleic acid isolation kits
  • Compatible with standard low input RNA sequencing library prep kits
  • Isolated cfRNA is suitable for downstream applications, including ddPCR and next-generation sequencing
  • Isolated extracellular vesicles are suitable for Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis or indirect analysis of EV-associated cargo

Benefits

  • Limits the degradation of white and red blood cells, providing sample integrity during storage, shipping, and handling of blood samples
  • Room temperature storage reduces costs and complications associated with cold chain shipping
  • Eliminates the need for immediate plasma preparation
  • Reduces hemolysis and increases plasma yield after storage compared to alternative blood collection tubes
