Fruit-mate for RNA Purification
Plant RNA extraction—which is often difficult using standard RNA extraction kits—can be easily and effectively performed with our Fruit-mate for RNA Purification kit. This kit may be used for plant RNA extraction from a wide variety of plant samples such as leaf, seed, rhizome, fruit, etc., which often contain large amounts of polysaccharides or polyphenols.
Plant RNA extraction—which is often difficult using standard RNA extraction kits—can be easily and effectively performed with our Fruit-mate for RNA Purification kit. This kit may be used for plant RNA extraction from a wide variety of plant samples such as leaf, seed, rhizome, fruit, etc., which often contain large amounts of polysaccharides or polyphenols. Fruit-mate for RNA Purification is ideal for polysaccharide/polyphenol removal because it contains a non-ionic polymer that binds polysaccharides and polyphenols. These substances can then be easily removed from the homogenized sample through a simple centrifugation step.
- Pre-treatment reagent for total RNA extraction from plants with high polysaccharide or polyphenol content
- Successful results confirmed with a variety of plant samples, including strawberry (fruit), cherry tomato (fruit), banana (fruit), tomato (seed), rice (seed), potato (rhizome), mandarin orange (peel), pine (leaf), aloe (leaf), mango (fruit), and Arabidopsis (seed).

The better way to isolate RNA
Critical factors when purifying RNA are the complete removal of contaminating DNA (gDNA) and the immediate prevention of degradation of RNA. The NucleoSpin RNA Plus kit introduces the NucleoSpin gDNA Removal Column, a spin column which quickly and completely removes genomic DNA contamination without the need for DNase digestion. To maintain RNA integrity, cells and tissues are first lysed by incubation in a chaotropic ion lysis buffer solution, which immediately inactivates RNases.Learn more Buy now
