Tissue Total RNA Mini Kit (RTD050, RTD100, RTD300) with DNase
The Total RNA Mini Kit (Tissue) is a RNA Isolation Kit designed for total RNA purification from a variety of animal tissue using an efficient RNA miniprep system. This RNA Kit will purify RNA from tissue samples within 15 minutes. Tissue samples can be efficiently homogenized in a microcentrifuge tube using the provided DNase and RNase-free Micropestle. The Total RNA Mini Kit (Tissue) uses detergents and chaotropic salt to lyse cells and inactivate RNase. RNA in the chaotropic salt is bound by the glass fiber matrix of the RNA spin column. Once any contaminants have been removed, using the Wash Buffer (containing ethanol), the purified total RNA is eluted by RNase-free Water. Phenol extraction or alcohol precipitation is not required and the purified RNA is ready for use in a variety of downstream applications. Each Geneaid RNA Kit includes individually packaged certified DNase and RNase-free spin columns and collection tubes and DNase I for DNA sensitive downstream applications.




Advantages (Cat. # RTD050, RTD100, RTD300)
  • Purify total RNA within 15 minutes!
  • Sample: up to 25 mg of tissue (tailsnips, liver, kidney, brain, spleen, earpunches etc.)
  • High Yield: 5-30 μg of pure RNA
  • RNase and DNase-free Micropestles included for simple tissue homogenization within the tube to reduce the risk of sample contamination

Quality Control

The quality of the Total RNA Mini Kit (Tissue) is tested on a lot-to-lot basis according to Geneaid's ISO-certified quality management system. Total RNA from a 25 mg fresh tissue sample is extracted using the Total RNA Mini Kit (Tissue). The purified RNA (A260/A280 ratio of 1.8-2.0) is quantified with a spectrophotometer and checked by electrophoresis.
Total RNA Mini Kit (Tissue) Functional Test Data 
Figure 1. Total RNA was extracted from 10 mg of various mouse tissue using the Total RNA Mini Kit (Tissue). 5 μl aliquots of each sample was analyzed by electrophoresis on a 1% agarose gel.
