Is RNA from red blood cells also isolated when RNA is extracted from a PAXgene Bone Marrow RNA Tube?

Yes. The PAXgene Bone Marrow RNA System purifies RNA from whole bone marrow. Therefore it will also purify RNA from other cells, e.g. reticulocytes and RBCs. Array analyses have shown higher globin mRNA levels for RNA isolated from whole bone marrow compared to RNA isolated from mononuclear cells.
