RNA Extraction From Cultured Cells
Purifying RNA from cultured cells has traditionally been a highly repetitive, time- and labor-intensive procedure, often involving the use of toxic organic chemicals. The products developed by our RNA experts allow you to isolate RNA of maximum yield, purity, and integrity using several technology formats (organic extraction, glass-fiber columns, magnetic beads, and combinations of these).
You can also analyze cultured cell lysates without first isolating the RNA. In significantly less time, you’ll get qPCR results equivalent to - or in some cases better than - those from purified RNA. The Cells-to-CT™ and Single Cell-to-CT™ product lines offer tremendous performance and handling advantages.

Preserve and Stabilize Your RNA
RNAlater® Solution is widely used for the preservation of RNA in intact animal tissues, organs, and cells, and bacteria. It eliminates the need to immediately process samples for RNA isolation or to freeze them in liquid nitrogen for later processing.
