This kit is intended for RNA extraction from clinical samples. The procedure is quick and simple, and is suitable for low- to mid- throughput applications. An experienced user can process up to 16 samples in less than an hour.
Our protocols are compatible with viral transport media (VTMs), plasma, serum, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), saliva, and whole blood. Do not use blood supplemented with Heparin, as heparin is known to inhibit PCR.
Although the kit is intended for viral RNA extraction, please note that all RNA species in the samples are extracted simultaneously. For example, if the sample is derived from a human origin, human RNA is extracted along with viral RNA (if any).
THIS KIT SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR MEDICAL OR DIAGNOSTIC PURPOSES.
