  1. Offers high yields of total RNA from tissues and cells
  2. Includes protocol for enrichment of microRNA
  3. Works well for recovering RNA from cell-free fluids
  4. Includes inert co-precipitant for maximizing RNA recovery 


The BiooPure™ RNA Isolation Reagent is a single-phase reagent for extraction of total RNA or enriched small RNA (including miRNA) from solid tissues, cultured cells, and cell-free fluids such as serum and plasma. The BiooPure Reagent contains guanidinium, a powerful chaotropic agent effective for rapidly inactivating nucleases, and phenol, an organic solvent used to denature and separate proteins and DNA from RNA.
