What is the purity of nucleic acids extracted with the PAXgene Tissue kits?

The PAXgene Tissue DNA, RNA, and miRNA Kits are based on proven QIAGEN technologies. Nucleic acids isolated with these kits are generally of high purity.

On average, measurements of the A260/A280 ratio for DNA purified with the PAXgene Tissue DNA Kit are >1.7, and ratios for RNA and miRNA purified with the PAXgene Tissue RNA or miRNA Kits are both >1.8.

For examples of RNA purity see Technical Note "Yield, purity, and integrity of RNA purified from PAXgene Tissue fixed, paraffin-embedded (PFPE) rat tissue" under the Product Resources tab.
