The EXTRACTME TOTAL RNA 96-WELL kit is designed for high-throughput and efficient purification of high quality RNA from up to 10 mg of tissue (fresh or frozen) and 104 - 107 cultured cells. The isolation protocol and buffer formulations were optimized for high isolation efficiency and purity of RNA. The product is intended for research use only.

The EXTRACTME TOTAL RNA 96-WELL kit utilizes 96-minicolumn plates with membranes which efficiently and selectively bind nucleic acids at high concentration of chaotropic salts. The isolation procedure consists of 5 steps. In the first isolation step, the tissue is homogenized in order to disintegrate intercellular bonds (epithelial tissue) and fragmentize high-molecular proteins (muscle or connective tissue). Then the homogenate is lysed with guanidine thiocyanate and detergents. Any RNases are inactivated by guanidine thiocyanate and β-mercaptoethanol. The RNA is bound to the Purification Minicolumn plate
membrane by addition of ethanol. The three-step washing stage effectively removes impurities and enzyme inhibitors. The purified RNA is eluted using a low ionic strength buffer or RNase-free water (pH 7.0-9.0) and can be used directly in all downstream applications such as RT-PCR, Northern blotting, RT-qPCR and so forth.

Quality control

The quality of each production batch (LOT) of the EXTRACTME TOTAL RNA 96-WELL kit is tested using standard QC procedures. The purified RNA concentration, quality and stability are evaluated by gel electrophoresis and spectrophotometer. In addition, the functional quality is tested by reverse transcription and qPCR.
