- High quality intact RNA without genomic DNA contamination
- Consistent control for standard data set comparisons
- Extracted from all male and female tissues for broad gene coverage
- Made at industrial scales to minimize lot-to-lot variation
Quality Control: The integrity of RNA sample as indicated by intact ribosomal RNA is verified by denatured agarose gel electrophoresis. The purity of RNA is assessed by spectrophotometer (A260/A280: 1.9-2.1). Residual DNA contamination is tested by PCR.
Applications: Reference RNA is ideal for microarray analysis, Northern blotting, ribonuclease protection assay, SI nuclease assay, RT-PCR/Q-PCR/RACE analysis, cDNA synthesis, RNA differential display, microRNA studies, and purification of mRNA for library construction.
Packing/shipping: Total RNA sample is routinely provided in RNase-free water at a concentration of 1 mg/ml and shipped on dry ice.
