I am having trouble using the QiageN RNAeasy mini kit for CD34+ cells. Any tips?

|- As COS cells have high RNA content do not use more than 3 x 10*6 cells as a starting material, otherwise the RNA binding capacity of the RNeasy spin column will be exceeded and cause low yield.
|- To yield high RNA, give the column an extra wash with both RW1 and RPE buffers (3 total washes with each buffer).|
|- Include DNAse treatment for 15-20min.
- Ensure EtOH is completely evaporated off of the column prior to elution. Adjust time from 1min to 5 min at 60`C.
- Use water to elute the RNA that is warmed to ~60`C.
