What RNA yields are expected with the PAXgene Blood RNA kit?
Typical yields of RNA isolated from 2.5 ml human whole blood are between 4 and 20 µg. However yield is highly donor-dependent, and in some cases higher or lower yields may be achieved. At least 95% of all samples with a WBC count between 4.8 and 11.0 x 106 cells/ml of blood will yield ≥3 µg of total RNA per tube. To prevent low yields due to underfilling of the tube, see the phlebotomy FAQ and the blood collection demonstration video.
