- What can I use on my cells/tissues to protect
- How can I determine if an RNA sample has genomic DNA contamination? What will the A260/A280, A260/A230, and 28S/18S values indicate about an RNA sample and why are these values useful?
- How do I remove DNase from an RNA sample?
- What can I use to protect RNA in my frozen tissue sample?
- Can I go directly from cells to real-time PCR without having to purify RNA?
- What are the best ways to improve my RNA isolation?
- I am getting a poor A260/A280 ratio for RNA (<1.65) after extraction with TRIzol® Reagent. What could be the cause of this?
- I’m using your RNAqueous® kit, and the filter is clogging. Do you have any suggestions?
- I’m seeing RNA degradation after RNA extraction using the PureLink® RNA Mini Kit. What happened?
- I’m getting no PCR products or unexpected PCR products after performing a Cells-to-CT™ experiment. What could be the cause of this?
