Direct RNA purification from samples in TRI-Reagent® - Direct-zol™

Direct RNA purification from samples in TRI-Reagent® - Direct-zol™

Direct-zol™ RNA kits provide the quick and simple, chloroform and phenol free, spin column purification of high-quality total RNA directly from TRI Reagent®, TRIzol®, RNAzol®, QIAzol®, TriPure™, RNA-Bee™ and similar acid-guanidinium-phenol based reagents. These kits enable the effective purification of up to 100 µg of high-quality total RNA with just seven minutes of preparation time and without phase separation or precipitation.

Benefits of using Direct-zol™ RNA MiniPrep kits
• Consistent and efficient purification of small and large RNAs
• DNA-free RNA produced
• Seven minute preparation time
• No phenol or chloroform use
• Phenol carryover eliminated
• No phase separation, precipitation or post purification
• Wide sample compatibility
• Compatible with most RNA isolation reagents

"Before I discovered this kit, I was isolating RNA the old school way with chloroform and it would take half the day to finish the protocol. I tried the Zymo kit and I was definitely hesitant and did not have high hopes for it. I was wrong.....the Direct-zol RNA Miniprep kit is AWESOME! It took hardly any time, the protocol was so easy, and my RNA quality was SO much better. Honestly, this kit revolutionized my life at the bench. Thank you Zymo!"

NGS-Ready DNA With Direct-zol™

High quality broad range RNA purified with Direct-zol™

DNA-free RNA purified from human epithelial cells using Direct-zol™ compared to a DNA containing preparation from Supplier Q (1% agarose/TAE). Small RNAs were effectively recovered with Direct-zol™ while absent in Supplier Q preparations (Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100, Small RNA Chip data shown) (green).
