LAB BULLETIN: New RNA Kits from Empirical Bioscience Offer Swift and Extensive Purification
Empirical Bioscience announce that they have introduced the EB Pure Total RNA Kit and the EB Pure DNase 1 Digestion Kit for the fast and reliable purification of RNA from cells or soft tissue.
The High-Bind configuration of the EB Pure Total RNA Kit specifically, but reversibly, binds RNA under optimized conditions allowing proteins and other contaminants to be removed. It also allows for the binding of RNA in high-salt and elution in a low-salt buffer, and each column can bind up to 100 µg of RNA, so no organic extractions or additional precipitations are necessary. This helps to guarantee high and stable recovery rates in 20 minutes or less. Extracted RNA is suitable for use in applications such as RTPCR, Northern blotting, poly A+ RNA (mRNA) purification, nuclease protection, and in vitro translation.
