This kit provides for rapid spin column isolation and purification of total RNA and genomic DNA simultaneously from a single plant sample without splitting the lyate. Norgen's plant lysis solution is highly robust and effective over a wide range of plants including challenging samples. The total RNA and genomic DNA are both column purified in under 30 minutes. Since RNA and DNA are isolated without splitting the lysate, variability and inconsistent results are reduced. All sizes of RNA including microRNA are recovered without the need for phenol.Optional on-column DNase and RNase treatments provide flexibility to isolate DNA-free RNA or RNA-free DNA respectively. Isolated nucleic acids are of a high quality and yield, and are ready for downstream use including PCR, qPCR, RT-PCR, qRT-PCR, sequencing and more.
It is often necessary to isolate total RNA and genomic DNA from a single plant sample, such as for studies of gene expression, mutant or transgenic plant characterization, and host plant-pathogen characterization. This is of great benefit when isolating RNA and DNA from precious, difficult to obtain or very small samples. Furthermore, gene expression analysis will be more reliable since the RNA and DNA are derived from the same sample, therefore eliminating inconsistent results.
