Ambion Whatman™ FTA™ Cards are frequently used for the collection, transport, and storage of RNA and DNA in biological samples. The RNA Rapid Extraction Solution is to release RNA from the paper prior to RNA isolation. 10mL is provided. Suitable for use with northern blotting, RT-PCR (endpoint), and real-time PCR.
Rapid 5 minutes procedure to release RNA from Whatman FTA cards
Ideal for high-throughput applications
Integrity of RNA is unaffected
Ready for real-time PCR Disks punched from FTA Cards are simply dropped into RNA Rapid Extraction Solution and agitated for 5 minutes to release the sample for RNA isolation—while protecting the RNA from degradation. The RNA can then be purified from the RNA Rapid Extraction Solution using the MagMAX™-96 Viral RNA Isolation Kit (Cat. No. AM1836). The high-quality purified RNA is suitable for quantitative RT-PCR or other downstream RNA applications. Whatman FTA Cards can be used with virtually any sample type including blood, cultured cells, buccal cells, plant material, bacteria, plasmids, microorganisms, solid tissue, viral particles, and more.
