NucleoSpin® 8 / 96 RNA Blood

RNA from whole blood

Direct blood lysis –
no selective erythrocyte lysis

Isolation of total RNA from whole blood (human or animal) – flexible 8-well strip format for varying throughput or proven 96-well format for high throughput

• Direct total blood lysis – very simple and convenient procedure 
   (patent pending)
• No selective erythrocyte lysis at 4 °C – complete processing at RT
• Compatible with common blood collection tubes and anticoagulants 
  (e.g., EDTA, citrate, and heparin)
• Suitable for fresh and frozen blood samples
• rDNase included for efficient removal of genomic DNA
• Processing under vacuum or by centrifugation
• Suitable for manual and automated processing
• Innovative MN Wash Plate minimizes risk of cross-contamination
