RNA extraction kits and reagents help labs to isolate, purify, and select for total RNA, transcriptome RNA, mRNA, microRNA and other small RNAs, and sequence-specific RNA. Our comprehensive products provide research scientists with the quality and performance they need. Our full suite of products is backed by scientists and engineers and is designed for RNA isolation and purification from a wide range of different sample types, throughputs, and input quantities.
Types of RNA used for research include total RNA, mRNA, sequence-specific RNA, microRNA, and viral RNA. Researchers requiring testing of more than RNA from the sample can opt to use RNA/DNA or RNA/protein kits.
RNA extraction kits can further get categorized based on the type of RNA being studied. Products include RNA extractions kits for total RNA, mRNA, sequence-specific RNA, microRNA and other small RNAs, viral RNA, RNA/DNA, and RNA/protein kits.
Sequence-specific RNA include low-abundance cDNA from libraries, mutated sequences, infectious agents, and microsatellites. Target a specific RNA sequence and isolate only those RNA molecules directly from crude lysates or other biological fluids using magnetic bead technology.
Dynabeads Streptavidin are ideal for numerous applications, including protein purification, nucleic acid purification, protein interaction studies, immunoprecipitation, immunoassays, phage display, biopanning, drug screening, and cell isolation.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) and small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) help modulate gene expression. Along with several other classes of small noncoding RNAs (e.g., snRNA, snoRNA, and piRNA), they have tremendous impact on a variety of biological processes.
While most traditional RNA isolation methods are not very efficient at recovering these smaller RNAs, several kits developed by our RNA experts offer quantitative recovery of small RNAs from a variety of sample types.

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. Thermo Fisher Scientific 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.

Research sometimes requires testing of more than just RNA from each sample. For example, researchers may want to compare the effects of genetic variations on gene expression, or to evaluate both protein and cognate mRNA levels. To serve this need, some purification products are designed to extract both RNA and DNA, or both RNA and protein from samples. Kits with these capabilities allow users to get more out of their samples while employing one kit to streamline the process.
