Blood was collected from 12 donors into PAXgene Blood RNA Tubes. RNA was purified using the QIAsymphony PAXgene Blood RNA Kit on the QIAsymphony SP. RNA was analyzed with an Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer. Clear enrichment of small RNA species is shown in the gel-like image by the corresponding peaks in the donor RNA next to the marker band.
