FAQ ID -2340

The RNeasy Plus Universal Mini Kit has been designed for optimal lysis of all types of tissue. Lysis and homogenization are performed using QIAzol Lysis Reagent, a phenol-guanidine based lysis reagent. The RNeasy Plus Mini Kit is the optimal solution for cells and easy-to-lyse tissue since lysis occurs with Buffer RLT. Additionally, the gDNA removal feature is based on a different technology. While the classic RNeasy Plus Kit contains gDNA eliminator columns, the RNeasy Plus Universal Kit contains a gDNA eliminator solution.
