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?
Found 2 matching solutions for this experiment
|- To allow complete penetration by formalin, use tissue samples less than 5 mm thick
|- Perform all centrifugation steps using a microcentrifuge placed at 15–25°C
|- Do not exceed fixation time of 24 hours as it results in poor performance in downstream assay
