Quick-RNA Fungal/Bacterial Microprep Kit

Quick-RNA Fungal Bacterial Microprep Ki


  • High Quality: Extract intact high quality total RNA (including small/micro RNAs) from Gram-negative/postive bacteria, yeast, and fungi
  • Homogenization: Ultra-high density BashingBead technology for complete disruption and sample lysis.
  • Inhibitor-Free: RNA is ready for all downstream applications including sequencing, RT-PCR, microarray, etc.


The Quick-RNA Fungal/Bacterial Microprep Kit is designed for the simple and rapid isolation of RNA from tough-to-lyse fungi, including A. fumigatus, C. albicans, N. crassa, S. cerevisiae, S. pombe, as well as Gram (+/-) bacteria, algae, and protozoa. The procedure is easy and can be completed in minutes: fungal and/or bacterial samples are rapidly and efficiently lysed with our state of the art, ultra-high density BashingBeads. Zymo-Spin column technology is then used to isolate the RNA that is ideal for downstream molecular-based applications including Next-Gen sequencing, RT-PCR, microarray, hybridization, etc.
