The next generation of RNA sample preparation is here. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), our company uses carbon-coated magnetic beads for Isolating RNA and stabilization. For more than a decade, scientists have studied a unique interaction between carbon and single stranded nucleic acids, pi-pi stacking. This unique effect can be leveraged for superior RNA purity and selectivity.
The process is simple, low-cost, and compatible with a variety of lysis buffers and methodologies. Watch an extraction right here!
The main drawback from my current RNA isolation protocol is the numerous centrifugation steps and the relatively low volume of RNA yield in the end. Life Magnetics provides a higher yield of RNA from samples and eliminates the use of centrifugation steps.
It is easy to use and gives high quality and a greater yield at a much-reduced price. Also, the stability of RNA with the beads at room temperature before the final extraction step is a big plus.
This system is significantly easier than Trizol because it can be done on the bench top, rather than a fume hood. It is of comparable ease to Qiagen systems. A potential advantage that this kit has over a Qiagen system is that it can be scaled more easily.
With Life Magnetics Carbon-Based RNA extraction kit, it was nice to switch things up and try a different protocol. The extraction method generated great RNA purity and yield.
When I used the Life Magnetics IsoMag Carbon Based RNA purification kit, I was surprised how easy protocol was to follow and how much more RNA was extracted. The major advantage of this kit over other commercial kits is high RNA yield with no additional DNase cleanup steps.
Life Magnetics is your complete solution to RNA isolation, storage, and shipping.
