  • Magnetic-bead-based system

Product Details

Collect genetic and transcriptomic information from CTCs and rare cells, with minimal cell quantities, by isolating gDNA and mRNA from the same sample, at the same time.

The AllPrep DNA/mRNA Nano Kit uses a two-step magnetic-bead-based method that lets you maximize mRNA capture and isolate high-molecular-weight DNA for multiomics studies.


The AllPrep DNA/mRNA Nano Kit purifies high-quality gDNA and mRNA from the same cell (see figure “ Simultaneous mRNA and gDNA purification”) or low-biomass input samples (see figures “ Messenger RNA for single-cell RNA-seq applications”, “ Sequencing-ready gDNA from low cell numbers”, and “ Minimal amount of cells required”).

The kit’s simple and convenient procedure does not require the use of toxic substances such as phenol (see figure “ Magnetic-bead-based system”).

Genomic DNA purified with the AllPrep mRNA/DNA Nano Kit procedure has an average length of 60–100 kb, depending on homogenization conditions (see figure “ High-molecular-weight gDNA”). Compared to products from other suppliers, the AllPrep mRNA/DNA Nano Kit provides nucleic acids of significantly higher yields (see figure “ Maximal DNA and mRNA yields”).

See figures


Unlike other procedures where the biological sample or purified total nucleic acids are divided into two before being processed separately, the AllPrep DNA/mRNA Nano Kit purifies gDNA and mRNA simultaneously from the same precious sample. It also allows the parallel processing of multiple samples in less than 75 minutes.

The kit is compatible with small amounts of low-biomass samples such as CTCs, rare cells and low numbers of cells of animal or human origin.

The use of toxic substances such as phenol and/or chloroform, and tedious methods such as alcohol precipitation, are replaced by safe and simple magnetic-bead-based workflows using a magnetic rack such as the AdnaMag-S.


The AllPrep mRNA/DNA Nano Kit’s  magnetic-bead-based system purifies mRNA using oligo-dT magnetic beads, while gDNA is purified using DNA-affinity beads.

See figures


Genomic DNA purified with the AllPrep DNA/mRNA procedure has a high molecular weight of up to 100 kb. This purified DNA is suitable for any downstream application, such as PCR, multiplex PCR, dPCR, pyrosequencing or NGS.

The purified mRNA is of high quality and can be used in any application, such as RT-PCR, real-time RT-PCR, or cDNA generation, including the AdnaTest procedure for molecular characterization of CTCs.

What is the minimum amount of starting material that can be used with the DNA/mRNA Nano Kit?
For PCR applications using RNA, the minimum amount is 1 cell; for Pyrosequencing, 5 cells; for NGS applications, 20 cells.
Can miRNA and other RNAs smaller than 200 nucleotides be isolated with the AllPrep DNA/mRNA Nano Kit?
No, the AllPrep DNA/mRNA Nano Kit isolates messenger RNA only. For the isolation of microRNA we recommend to use the miRNeasy Micro Kit.
