How do I extract RNA from animal tissue without using liquid nitrogen? I tried the RNA extraction by using the TRIzol reagent and I homogenize the tissue using polytron homogenizer at room temperature for 30secs is this correct?

I used a serum/plasma kit for my serum samples. After the phase separation the samples should have 3 phases: a colourless aqueous phase, a white interphase and a red organic phase. However, in some of my samples there was no aqueous phase unless I wait for an extended period of time. How can I circumvent this problem?

|- The following might help to increase RNA yield
- Heat the DEPC Water to 70°C before adding to the column.
- Increase the incubation time to 5 minutes.
- Increase the elution volume.
- Repeat the elution step with fresh DEPC Water (this may increase the yield, but decrease the concentration).
- Repeat the elution step using the eluate from the first elution (this may increase yield while maintaining elution volume).
|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
