TRIzol™ Reagent (Invitrogen™)

TRIzol® Reagent is a complete, ready-to-use reagent for the isolation of high-quality total RNA or the simultaneous isolation of RNA, DNA, and protein from a variety of biological samples. This monophasic solution of phenol and guanidine isothiocyanate is designed to isolate separate fractions of RNA, DNA, and proteins from cell and tissue samples of human, animal, plant, yeast, or bacterial origin, within one hour.

Key features of TRIzol® Reagent include:

• Permits the isolation of RNA, DNA, and protein from the same sample
• Offers superior lysis capability, even with difficult sample types
• Optimized formulations and protocols for tissues, cells, serum, virus, and bacteria

Reliably purify RNA from multiple sample volumes and sources
TRIzol® Reagent performs well with small quantities of tissue (50–100 mg) and cells (5 × 106), as well as with large quantities of tissue (≥1 g) and cells (>107), and comes with prototcols for purification from samples of human, animal, plant, or bacterial origin. TRIzol® Reagent maintains the integrity of the RNA due to highly effective inhibition of RNase activity while disrupting cells and dissolving cell components during sample homogenization. The simplicity of the TRIzol® Reagent method allows simultaneous processing of a large number of samples. The entire procedure can be completed in 1 hour. Total RNA isolated by TRIzol® Reagent is free of protein and DNA contamination.

Formulated for isolation of multiple molecular targets
TRIzol® Reagent allows you to perform sequential precipitation of RNA, DNA, and proteins from a single sample. After homogenizing the sample with TRIzol® Reagent, chloroform is added, and the homogenate is allowed to separate into a clear upper aqueous layer (containing RNA), and interphase and red lower organic layers (containing the DNA and proteins). RNA is precipitated from the aqueous layer with isopropanol. DNA is precipitated from the interphase/organic layer with ethanol. Protein is precipitated from the phenol-ethanol supernatant by isopropanol precipitation. The precipitated RNA, DNA, or protein is washed to remove impurities, and then resuspended for use in downstream applications.

MagMAX™ FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit (Applied Biosystems™)

The MagMAX™ FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit is designed for sequential isolation of DNA and RNA from the same formaldehyde- or paraformaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sample. The DNA and RNA are recovered in separate eluates, and both are compatible with a broad range of applications, including real-time PCR and next-generation sequencing. The isolation of RNA and DNA from the same FFPE sample makes this kit an ideal method of sample preparation for Oncomine™ Comprehensive and Oncomine™ Focus assays.

Features of the MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit include:
• Flexible design that permits both manual and automated isolation of RNA and DNA
• Minimal requirement of 5 µm section or curl input
• Capable of processing 40 µm FFPE sections or curls; greater than 40 µm sections can be processed with an alternative protocol
• Compatible with targeted RNA and DNA sequencing panels
• Contains Dynabeads™ MyOne™ Silane for consistent isolation of RNA, microRNA, and DNA
• Alternative protocols for the isolation of RNA or DNA only

Unlocking the information contained in FFPE samples is essential to cancer research. Common nucleic acid isolation methods require you to choose which nucleic acid to recover from a given sample, with loss of the other nucleic acid (and any information that may have resulted from its analysis). Alternatively, the DNA and RNA are co-purified, or the sample is split in half so that each can be purified.

More information from less sample input
The MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit protocol addresses these issues by first isolating DNA from the FFPE sample and then recovering the RNA from the DNA-depleted supernatant. The nucleic acids are prepared as separate eluates and are then ready for downstream analysis. This allows for a fuller analysis of precious samples, including investigation of important biomarkers, such as hotspot mutations, CNVs, gene fusions, and indels.

Benefits of MagMAX magnetic bead–based purification
The magnetic bead–based purification format of the kit allows for easy scaling of the number of samples processed either manually with a magnetic stand or with a magnetic particle processor such as the KingFisher™ Duo Prime or KingFisher™ Flex processor.

Magnetic beads offer many benefits compared to other technologies for isolating nucleic acids. Beads bind the RNA and DNA more efficiently than glass fiber filters, resulting in higher and more consistent yields. Additionally, because filters and vacuum manifolds are not used, there is no risk of undigested tissue particulates clogging these items during the extraction process. This clogging issue is of particular concern with fibrous FFPE tissue samples that that are not fully digested during the proteinase K treatment.

Optimized bead surface chemistry
The Dynabeads MyOne Silane utilized in the MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit have an optimized silica-like surface chemistry with high specific surface area that allows efficient kinetics and high sensitivity in nucleic acid capture. These aspects make Dynabeads MyOne Silane ideal for the recovery of both RNA and DNA targets found in FFPE samples. Once captured, both of these nucleic acids are then eluted separately in volumes of 50 µL and are ready for downstream applications.
