  • Automated RNA Extraction from 1–16 Samples in ~30 Minutes

    The Maxwell® 16 Total RNA Purification Kit is used with the Maxwell® 16 Instrument to extract highly pure total RNA from a variety of sample sources including mammalian tissue, eukaryotic tissue culture cells, white blood cells, and plant leaf material. The kit can be also used in RNA cleanup applications from TRIZOL® extractions or in vitro transcription reactions. Beta-Mercaptoethanol is included for use with certain sample types.

    The Maxwell® 16 Instrument will process up to 16 samples in about 30 minutes. The purified RNA is ready for immediate downstream analysis without the need for precipitation, DNase treatment, or other post-purification manipulation. The kit provides high-quality, essentially DNA-free total RNA using novel approaches to selectively remove genomic DNA prior to automated RNA purification. You get enhanced sensitivity and improved confidence in your results for quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR), RT-PCR, cDNA synthesis and other applications.

    • Essentially undetectable contaminating genomic DNA means fewer repeated experiments and unexplained or variable results.
    • Flexibility to purify from tissue, cells, blood and other samples.
    Consistent yield and quality of isolated total RNA.
    Consistent yield and quality of isolated total RNA.

    Maxwell® Cartridge Seal Change

    The seal length on Maxwell® Cartridges has changed to create a pull-tab feature. The manufacturing procedures and quality-control testing of products have not changed.
