GeneMATRIX Universal Blood RNA Purification Kit is a specifically designed spin-column system for rapid isolation of total RNA from fresh or frozen human blood as well as from animal blood samples. Only a minimum of hands-on time is required at the sampling site: Blood samples are mixed with a specifically designed lysis buffer, which, upon addition, immediately inactivates any protein, including RNases. Thus, it is possible to conduct blood sampling by personnel lacking any molecular biological background. Followed by transport of the non-perishable sample to dedicated laboratories, further processing and analysis of stored blood samples is then conducted by skilled personnel.
Purified RNA is of high quality, is DNA-free as well as free of contaminants, such as heparin, proteins, lipids, dyes, detergents, organic inhibitors of enzymatic reactions, buffers, salts, divalent cations, among others. Rock-solid GeneMATRIX technology forms the basis for efficient recovery of pure RNA.
