Presto FFPE RNA Mini Kit (RFD050, RFD100)RNA Extraction/Total RNA
The Presto™ FFPE RNA Mini Kit was designed specifically for purifying total RNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue. Paraffin is initially dissolved with organic solvents such as Xylene followed by Proteinase K digestion. RNA in chaotropic salt is then bound by the glass fiber matrix of the spin column and DNA contamination is removed using an in column DNase treatment. Other contaminants are removed using Wash Buffer and the purified total RNA is eluted in RNase-free Water. High quality total RNA can be purified within 80 minutes without phenol extraction or alcohol precipitation. The purified RNA is ready for use in Real-time PCR, mRNA selection, cDNA synthesis and NGS.
