RNA Purification

Special considerations for isolation of RNA from different sample sources

Some sample sources have differences in their RNA or contain substances that can cause problems in RNA isolation and analysis. Special considerations are required when working with these sample sources. In this infographic, considerations for working with a number of different sources are discussed.

No currently available purification method can guarantee that RNA is completely free of DNA, even when it is not visible on an agarose gel. 

Certain solutions that can help remove genomic DNA contamination from RNA are also highlighted in this infographic.
