The GRCF offers RNA isolation from PAXgene blood collection tubes, tissues (fresh or RNAlater preserved) and cultured cells. RNA is suitable for many downstream applications including cDNA synthesis, qPCR, Northern blots and library construction.

Quantitative analysis is by Nanodrop.

Qualitative analysis is available by Advanced Analytical Fragment Analyzer CE analysis. The system gives results similar and comparable to a Agilent BioAnalyzer. Advanced Analytical’s PROSize software determines a RQN (RNA Quality Number) on a scale from 1 to 10.
