Viral RNA From Liquid & Cell-Free Samples

Viral analysis of biological (animal, insect, plant, fungal, bacterial) and environmental (water, air, food) samples is increasingly conducted using molecular testing strategies that require viral RNA or DNA from the samples being tested. Purification of viral RNA poses unique challenges for getting good recovery and detection sensitivity. Ambion® RNA experts have developed RNA purification products that are optimized to provide maximum viral RNA yield, purity, and integrity from a broad range of sample types in several format options.

“Highly concentrated viral RNA from the PureLink® Viral RNA/DNA Mini Kit provides a tool for more sensitive and delicate downstream analysis on viral genomes”
