High-throughput total RNA isolation and purification—NucleoSpin 8 RNA
NucleoSpin 8 RNA is designed for automated isolation and purification of total RNA from animal or human cell cultures and tissue. With the NucleoSpin 8 RNA method, cells are lysed in the presence of chaotropic salts. The lysis buffer immediately inactivates RNases, which are present in virtually any biological material, and creates appropriate conditions for RNA to bind to the silica membrane. Genomic DNA is removed by performing on-column DNA digestion using the rDNase provided in the kit.

Genomic DNA is removed by performing on-column DNA digestion using the rDNase provided in the kit. Ready-to-run protocols are available and can be customized to fit your needs. NucleoSpin 8 RNA provides consistent RNA quality, reproducible yields of RNA, and high-throughput procedures free of cross-contamination without the use of organic extraction (e.g., Trizol). These kits are powerful tools for applications such as microarray analysis in respect to gene expression profiling, and drug discovery.
The kits allow isolation and purification of total RNA from up to 107 cells or up to 30 mg of tissue (centrifuge processing). Contaminating DNA, which is also bound to the silica membrane, is removed by on-column DNA digestion using DNase I (DNase I is supplied with the kits). Salts, metabolites, and macromolecular cellular components are removed by simple washing steps with three different buffers. Pure RNA is finally eluted under low ionic strength conditions with RNase-free water (pH 8.0–8.5).

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
