For purification of up to 100 µg total RNA from cells, tissues, and yeast
Fast procedure delivering high-quality total RNA in minutes
Ready-to-use RNA for high performance in any downstream application
Consistent RNA yields from small amounts of starting material
No phenol/chloroform extraction, no CsCl gradients, no LiCl or ethanol precipitation
The RNeasy Mini Kit provides fast purification of high-quality RNA from cells, tissues, and yeast using silica-membrane RNeasy spin columns with a binding capacity of 100 μg RNA. Tissue samples can be conveniently stabilized using RNAlater RNA Stabilization Reagent or Allprotect Tissue Reagent, and efficiently disrupted using a TissueRuptor or TissueLyser system. RNA purification using the RNeasy Mini Kit can be fully automated on the QIAcube Connect. For smaller and larger samples, the RNeasy Micro Kit (spin-column binding capacity of up to 45 µg RNA), the RNeasy Midi Kit (spin-column binding capacity of 1 mg RNA), and RNeasy Maxi Kit (spin-column binding capacity of 6 mg RNA) are also available.
The RNeasy Mini Kit is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
RNeasy Mini procedure.
Total RNA purified with the RNeasy Mini Kit is of high quality and is suitable for many downstream applications. Protocols are also included for cleanup of partially purified RNA, in vitro transcripts, and RNA from enzymatic reactions. Lyticase, zymolase, or glass beads (required for yeast samples) are not provided. Amounts of RNA isolated from samples can vary due to the developmental stage, species, and growth conditions of the sample source.
