Quick-DNA/RNA MagBead

Isolate DNA and RNA from any sample


  • Quick & Easy: Extract DNA and RNA from any sample including cells, solid tissue, whole blood, biological liquids, FFPE tissue, environmental (plant/seed), swabs (stool, soil, microbial samples), etc.
  • Ultra-Pure: Ready for Next-generation sequencing, RT-qPCR, arrays, etc. DNase I included (Plus kit and MagBead only)


The Quick-DNA/RNA MagBead Kit provides a high-throughput, magnetic-bead based purification of both high-quality DNA and total RNA (including small RNAs) from the same starting sample. The provided DNA/RNA Shield inactivates infectious agent and is ideal for sample storage at ambient temperatures. The extraction method has the option to recover total nucleic acids in one elution or DNA & RNA in separate elutions without the use of phenol. It is eluted into =50 µl of DNase/RNase-free water and is ready for any downstream application including RT-PCR, sequencing, etc.

“This kit was invaluable. I was able to get at least 1 µg of RNA and several hundred nanograms of DNA from each sample – all of it high quality. Much better than my previous experience with a different dual DNA/RNA isolation kit.”

– Julie P. (CU Anschutz Medical Campus)

“I usually recommend this kit for those who want to extract both DNA and RNA from a single sample. We have even had great quality and yield for single insect samples.”

– Robert B. (Harvard University)

“The kit is very economical for simultaneous extraction of high quality DNA and RNA from very small amount of biological samples. More particularly, RNA is of good quality that suits best for applications like next-generation sequencing (RNA-Seq).”

– Muhammad A. (Northwestern University)

“The kit is awesome! Besides saving a lot of time purifying gDNA and RNA at the same time, it also allows me to use cultures for other purposes since both can be extracted from the same sample.”

– Fernando B. (MIT)

“”Love this kit. I work with small mites and I get great results. I have tried other kits and none perform the same. Technical support is also great and they do their best to answer your questions and concerns.”
