I am having trouble using the QiageN RNAeasy mini kit for CD34+ cells. Any tips?
Found 5 matching solutions for this experiment
|- 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.
- For purifying RNA add either 10 μl β-mercapto ethanol (β-ME) or 20 μl 2 M dithiothreitol (DTT).
|All 4 methods successfully extracted RNA (determined as generating a measurable signal using the Qubit) from as little as one 5 μm section, with geometric mean RNA yields greater than 100 ng (Table 1/Fig. 1). The Qiagen RNeasy FFPE extraction kit gave a superior geometric mean RNA yield of 398 ng|
