Porvair Sciences has launched kits for rapid extraction of total RNA from a wide range of biological samples. The proprietary kits enable extraction of up to 1000 µg of application-ready pure RNA in as little as ten minutes.
Extraction and purification of RNA is required for numerous downstream molecular biology applications such as RT-PCR, qPCR, Western blotting and RNA amplification. The global COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a huge increase in the demand for testing and detection of viral nucleic acids. The first step in this process, no matter what research or testing method is to be used, is to extract the RNA from any sample with a potential viral contamination.
The Chromatrap RNA Extraction kits all follow the simple procedure of sample lysis, RNA capture, washing, and finally elution of purified RNA. Leveraging a uniquely-designed spin column and proprietary buffer chemistry, the kit provides a complete solution for isolation and purification of RNA.
Porvair's extraction kits employ a reliable protocol to isolate superior quality RNA from a wide range of samples sources. The kits benefit from high volume binding capacity, ensuring RNA is efficiently lysed, captured and eluted.
Using a Chromatrap RNA extraction kit - scientists can process up to 107 cultured animal cells, 50 mg animal tissue, 0.5 ml blood, 250 mg plant material, 5 x 107 yeasts or 5 x 108 bacteria in a single go.
