High quality RNA isolated with ZymoBIOMICS RNA Mini Kit


Human stool RNA isolated with the ZymoBIOMICS RNA Mini Kit is higher quality (right); compared to Supplier MB procedures (left). Quality assessed by Agilent 2200 TapeStation.

Purified RNA is free from DNA & PCR inhibitors

ZymoBIOMICS RNA Mini kit PCR inhibitor removal

LEFT: Human stool RNA was analysed after RT-PCR and PCR amplification (~150 bp fragment shown) for both Zymo and Supplier MB procedures. Lack of a band in PCR using the ZymoBIOMICS™ RNA Mini Kit indicates DNA-free RNA. Quality assessed by Agilent 2200 TapeStation. RIGHT: Total RNA isolated from human stool with or without inclusion of the Zymo-Spin™ IV-HRC Spin Filter during the ZymoBIOMICS™ RNA Mini Kit protocol. Earlier amplification cycles indicate complete removal of PCR inhibitors.
