Arcturus® RNA Amplification Kits for research use enable gene expression analysis of millions of previously inaccessible formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) research tissue samples and frozen samples. Amplify RNA from as little as 1 ng of total RNA or 5 ng of fixed RNA.

Arcturus® RiboAmp® PLUS Frozen RNA Amplification Kits

The RiboAmp® PLUS Frozen RNA Amplification Kits enable researchers to perform molecular analysis on RNA samples that, until now, have been too small for microarray analysis. Using a proprietary process for high-efficiency, high-fidelity linear amplification, messenger RNA is amplified up to 1,000-fold in one synthesis round and up to 1,000,000-fold in two rounds. The RiboAmp® PLUS Kits produce amplified antisense RNA (aRNA), ready for labeling and microarray hybridization or real-time PCR, and can be used to generate biologically relevant results with cDNA and oligonucleotide array platforms.
