Includes: 50 Micro Filter Cartridge Assembly; 50 Micro Elution Tubes; 15mL Wash Solution 1 Concentrate; 28mL Wash Solution 2/3 concentrate; 25 Lysis Solution; 200µL LCM Additive; 55µL DNase 2U/µL; 600µL 10X DNase I Buffer; 150µL DNase Inactivation Reagent; 5mL Elution Solution



The RNAqueous-Micro Kit is used for phenol-free total RNA isolation from micro-sized samples (e.g., from <500,000 cultured cells, from few as 10 laser capture microdissected cells, or from ≤ 10mg of tissue) using a guanidinium-based lysis/denaturant and glass fiber filter separation technology. DNA-free™ DNA removal reagents are included in the kit, making the isolated RNA especially suitable for RT-PCR.

  • Highly concentrated RNA—for increased sensitivity in downstream assays
  • Isolation of high-quality RNA from micro-scale samples
  • Reagents/protocol for RNA recovery from LCM samples
How it works
Samples are solubilized in a powerful chaotropic solution, and RNA is purified on a glass fiber filter cartridge specifically designed for very small samples. A simple modification of the protocol allows recovery of both large and small RNA species including tRNAs, 5S rRNA, and microRNAs. The RNA is eluted in a minimal volume of 20µL. Residual genomic DNA is efficiently removed using the DNA-free™ system included in the kit. The RNAqueous-Micro Kit contains enough reagents for 50 RNA isolations of DNA-free RNA.
