The Mini Total RNA Kit for blood and cultured cells is specially designed for purification of total RNA from fresh whole human blood and cultured cells. This method uses detergents and a chaotropic salt to lyse cells and inactivate RNase. The RNA in the chaotropic salt is bound by the glass fiber matrix of the spin column. Once any contaminants have been removed following the wash step, the purified RNA is eluted by RNase-Free water. The entire procedure can be completed within 30 minutes. The purified RNA is ready for RT-PCR, Northern Blotting, Primer Extension, and cDNA library construction.
The quality of the Total RNA mini Kit for blood and cultured cells is tested on a lot-to-lot basis by isolating total RNA from blood and cultured cell samples. The purified RNA is quantified with a spectrophotometer and checked by electrophoresis.

Can the Total RNA replacement columns be used for miRNA application? No, there are subtle differences between the Total RNA and miRNA columns.
What is the minimum sample size of mammalian cells that can be run in the Total RNA Blood & Cultured cell kit? 1 x 105 of cultured mammalian cells would be the minimum sample size. 5 x 106 is the maximum sample size for mammalian cells.
