This tech report describes an automated method of RNA extraction using the Aurum total RNA 96 kit and its use in a magnetic–bead based automated process. Results show that throughput can be easily increased with the Aurum total RNA 96 kit and that the automation protocols yield more reliable results, particularly when high sample volumes are used.4
The proprietary warp-free Hard-Shell plates have a reputation as premium plates and were widely used on Bio-Rad, MJ, and Applied Biosystems instruments for the Human Genome Project. Now, researchers can use the same high-quality Hard-Shell plates on Roche LightCycler 480 instruments.5
Not all cDNA synthesis kits have the same capacity to protect the integrity of RNA. An optimal level of RNase inhibitor is critical for powerful RNase inhibition and efficient reverse transcription. The iScript™ cDNA synthesis kit comes with a 5x iScript reaction mix and iScript reverse transcriptase, which is also blended with a potent RNase inhibitor.
