Quick-RNA Whole Blood

Isolate RNA and small/miRNA from whole blood.


  • Superior Yields: Recover total RNA (including small/micro RNAs) without sample loss.
  • Protection: Worry-free blood sample storage at ambient temperatures for up to 30 days.
  • High-Quality: RNA is ready for all downstream applications including Next-Gen Sequencing, RT-PCR, etc. DNase I Included.


The Quick-RNA Whole Blood kit utilizes DNA/RNA Shield™, a unique preservation and lysis technology, to enable rapid isolation of total RNA from whole or partitioned blood or a cell pellet (after red blood cell lysis). The procedure uses Zymo-Spin column technology in which the sample is pre-filtered on the Zymo-Spin IIICG Column and then purified and concentrated on the Zymo-Spin IC Column. RNA is eluted into = 6 µl of RNase-free water and is ready for any downstream application including RT-PCR, sequencing, etc.
