PureLink purification technology

Invitrogen PureLink technology combines non-toxic lysis with the speed, purity and ease of use of silica-membrane column RNA purification. The safe and easy RNA purification procedure can be completed in less than 20 minutes, and high quality total RNA can be obtained from mini- to midiprep amounts of starting material with no genomic DNA contamination.

Figure 1. The look of high-quality RNA. RNA was purified from 1x106 HeLa cells TRIzol Reagent, the ChargeSwitch Total RNA Cell Kit, the PureLinkRNA Mini Kit, and the TRIzol Plus Purification System. (A) A260/A280 and A260/A230 and (B) RNA Integrity Numbers (RIN) were assessed using a spectrophotometer and an Agilent Bioanalyzer.
