Thermo Scientific GeneJET™ Stabilized and Fresh Whole Blood RNA Kit is designed for rapid and efficient purification of high quality total RNA from various whole blood samples: fresh, frozen, or human blood samples stabilized with commercial stabilizers such as Tempus™ and PAXgene™.

The kit utilizes silica-based membrane technology in the form of a convenient spin column, eliminating the need for expensive resins, toxic phenol-chloroform extractions, or time-consuming alcohol precipitation. The kit includes a DNase l for the enzymatic removal of genomic DNA. RNA can be isolated from whole blood in less than 30 minutes (including cell lysis and DNase l treatment).


Versatile—compatible with fresh and frozen blood, buffy coat, as well as blood collected in PAXgene™and Tempus™ Tubes
Convenient—specially optimized Lysis Buffer is suitable for RNA stabilization up to 48 h
Efficient—up to 4 µg of total RNA from 500 µL of healthy human blood
Pure—isolates intact total RNA free of any RT-qPCR inhibitors


Isolated total RNA can be used in:
• Northern Blotting

• Lysis Buffer (R2841)
• Wash Buffer 1 (conc.)(R2851)
• Wash Buffer 2 (conc.)(R2861)
• DNase l (lyophilized)
