IBI offers two different kits for extracting RNA from tissue including the Total RNA Tissue Mini Kit and Isolate DNA/RNA Reagent Kit.

Reference the differences below between the Total RNA Tissue Mini Kit and the Isolate DNA/RNA Reagent Kit to choose the best kit for your application:

• Total RNA Tissue Mini Kit: spin column, 20 minute operation time, up to 25mg of tissue/up to 25mg of paraffin-embedded tissue, expected yield 5-30µg RNA. No use of phenol or guanidine isothiocyanate.

• Isolate DNA/RNA Reagent Kit: reagent based extraction, 60 minute operation time, scalable sample size. Uses phenol, chloroform, and guanidine isothiocyanate for RNA extraction.
