The Quick-RNA™ Tissue/Insect Microprep kit from Zymo Research extracts intact high-quality total RNA (including small/micro RNAs) from insect and arthropod specimens (mosquitoes, bees, lice, ticks, Drosophila melanogaster etc.). With the efficient homogenisation of samples using the ultra-high density BashingBead™ technology, the Quick-RNA Tissue/Insect Microprep kit isolates inhibitor-free RNA for downstream applications including next-generation sequencing, RT-PCR, microarray or hybridisation.
Benefits of using the Quick-RNA Tissue/Insect Microprep kit
• High-quality total RNA (including small/micro RNAs) extracted
• Compatible with insect and arthropod specimens
• Complete disruption and sample lysis with ultra-high density BashingBead technology
• Inhibitor-free RNA suitable for all downstream applications including next-generation sequencing, RT-PCR and microarrays
BashingBead technology for complete disruption and sample lysis
State-of-the-art BashingBeads are ideal for disrupting tough-to-lyse organisms when paired with bead mills or high speed cell disrupters.
