Zymo Phenol-Free RNA Isolation

Isolation and handling of ribonucleic acid (RNA) has historically been thought to be more difficult than DNA due to the presence of ubiquitous and stable RNases.  However, this issue can be remedied if the correct tools are used.  Purification of high-quality, intact RNA from biological samples or in vitro reactions is important to the success of all downstream applications.  To achieve reproducible, trustworthy results from quantitative RT-PCR, Northern blots, microarrays, and cDNA library prep for Next-Generation sequencing, it is important to use the best RNA purification methods available.
