Pinpoint Slide RNA Isolation System

RNA from tissue sections on glass slides


  • High Quality: Allows for the isolation of total RNA from fresh tissue sections (System I) or FFPE tissues (System II) on glass slides.
  • Simple: Pinpoint tissue sampling technology with a one-step RNA extraction/purification method.
  • Concentrated: Up to 10 µg sample in ≥ 6 µl elution.


The Pinpoint Slide RNA Isolation Systems I and II are innovative products for the isolation of RNA from any targeted area of fresh, paraffin-fixed, or paraffin-embedded tissues sectioned onto a glass slide. The system combines powerful Pinpoint tissue sampling methodology, a unique single-step RNA extraction/binding buffer, and Zymo-Spin column purification technology to yield high quality RNA. Unlike current UV-based methods, this product makes isolation of tissue RNA simple and quick. No expensive specialized equipment is needed. Eluted RNA is well suited for subsequent RNA analyses including RT-PCR.
