Dynabeads™ mRNA DIRECT™ Purification Kit (Invitrogen™)

The Dynabeads® mRNA DIRECT™ Kit is designed for simple and rapid isolation of pure, intact polyadenylated (polyA) mRNA directly from the crude lysate of animal and plant cells and tissues. The isolated mRNA is suitable for use in all downstream applications. Advantages of the Dynabeads® mRNA DIRECT™ Kit:

Fast—15 minute procedure yields pure, intact mRNA
Highly pure mRNA isolation—best choice upstream of cDNA synthesis
Sensitive mRNA isolation—enables cDNA synthesis and cDNA library construction from ultra-small starting samples

System overview
The isolation protocol relies on base pairing between the polyA residues at the 3' end of most mRNA, and the oligo (dT)25 residues covalently coupled to the surface of the Dynabeads® . Other RNA species lacking a polyA tail will not hybridize to the beads and are readily washed away. Ribosomal RNA, DNA, proteins, and small RNA molecules (such as transfer RNA, micro RNA, and small nucleolar RNA) do not bind to the beads and are discarded. RNase inhibiting agents in the Lysis/Binding Buffer together with stringent hybridization and washing conditions ensure the isolation of pure, intact mRNA from crude samples rich in RNase, without the use of strong chaotropic agents. The mRNA purification beads specifically target and capture the mRNA transcriptome from an extremely wide variety of crude starting samples (see protocol). 1 mg of Dynabeads® Oligo (dT)25 beads (200 µL) binds up to 2 µg of mRNA. A typical mammalian cell contains about 10–30 pg of total RNA, from which 1–5% is mRNA.

How it works
The PureLink® Pro Quick96 Plasmid Kit uses two 96-well plates, a filtration plate (clear O-ring), and a binding plate (red O-ring) to purify plasmid DNA. Bacterial cells are subjected to alkaline lysis and are pelleted by centrifugation. The bacterial lysate is then applied to the Quick96 Filtration Plate for clearing and collection in the Quick96 Binding Plate, where the plasmid DNA binds to the silica membrane. After washing steps to remove contaminants, purified DNA is eluted and ready for use in downstream applications. The entire procedure can be completed in 45 minutes (Figure 1).

Improved plate design
The PureLink® Pro Quick96 Plasmid Kit provides optimized semiskirted 96-well plates for improved performance and results (Figure 2). The Quick96 Filtration Plate is designed for fast and efficient clearing of the bacterial lysates. The Quick96 Binding Plate offers an increased binding capacity of up to 20 µg plasmid DNA. In addition, the plate nozzles with annular collar prevent cross-contamination of samples and improve drying of the silica membrane to prevent ethanol carryover. In addition, sample processing can be performed manually using a benchtop vacuum manifold, by centrifugation, or with an automated liquid handling platform. The semiskirted plate design is compatible with most vacuum manifolds on robotic workstations.

Higher yields and purity
The PureLink® Pro Quick96 Plasmid Kit allows rapid and reproducible purification of up to 20 µg of plasmid DNA from E. coli strains grown in up to 5 ml LB, 3 ml 2xYT, or 3 ml TB.
