For purification of microRNA and total RNA from a wide range of animal tissues and cells
miRNeasy Kits allow purification of total RNA including miRNA or enrichment of miRNA in a separate fraction. The miRNeasy Mini Kit is suitable for low-throughput RNA purification. The miRNeasy 96 Kit allows high-throughput purification in a 96-well format.
Advantages of miRNeasy Kits:
Flexible protocols for purification of total RNA or enrichment of miRNA
miRNeasy Kits enable purification of total RNA which includes RNA from 18 nucleotides (nt) upwards. The purified RNA is suitable for use in downstream applications such as northern blot analysis and quantitative, real-time RT-PCR. Alternatively, an miRNA-enriched fraction and a total RNA (>200 nt) fraction can be purified separately (see flowchart). A separate miRNA-enriched fraction may be required to reduce background in particularly sensitive downstream applications.
The miRNeasy Mini Kit is used for low-throughput RNA purification using
spin columns. The miRNeasy 96 Kit enables high-throughput purification
in a 96-well format, and is the first available 96-well format kit for
