Performance

The high-quality viral RNA isolated using the QIAamp Viral RNA Mini QIAcube Kit performs well in a wide range of downstream applications, including viral genotyping, viral epidemiology, and infectious disease research.

The QIAamp Viral RNA Mini QIAcube Kit includes rotor adapters that are preloaded with QIAamp spin columns and elution tubes, delivering greater convenience and time savings (see figure "Significant time savings"). Furthermore, ease of use is increased and user errors minimized. Waste is reduced, because the content of the dedicated kit is tailored for purification on the QIAcube and the superfluous tubes that are required for the manual procedure are not included.

Principle

The QIAamp Viral RNA Mini QIAcube Kit simplifies isolation of viral RNA from cell-free body fluids. No phenol–chloroform extraction is required. Viral RNA binds specifically to the QIAamp silica membrane while contaminants pass through. PCR inhibitors, such as divalent cations and proteins, are completely removed in two efficient wash steps, leaving pure viral RNA to be eluted in either water or a buffer provided with the kit.

Procedure

The award-winning QIAcube uses advanced technology to process QIAGEN spin columns, enabling seamless integration of automated, low-throughput sample prep into laboratory workflows. All steps in the purification procedure are fully automated — up to 12 samples can be processed per run. The QIAcube together with the dedicated QIAamp Viral RNA Mini QIAcube Kit provides a winning combination for fast, easy, and convenient viral RNA purification.

Applications

The QIAamp Viral RNA Mini QIAcube Kit is for automated purification of viral RNA from cell-free body fluids on the QIAcube. Sample sources include:

Plasma and serum
CSF
Urine
Other cell-free body fluids
Cell-culture supernatants
