Viral RNA Extraction Kit is designed for the rapid simultaneous purification of viral RNA from cell –free samples such as Serum, Plasma, Urine, Cell free body fluids, Cell Culture supernatants and Rinse liquid from swabs samples. This RNA Extraction Kit was specifically validated for COVID-19 research by the Spanish Institution. This RNA Extraction Kit is developed, designed and tested for both research and in vitro diagnosis purposes. It has not been tested for use in drug development and it is not suitable for administration to humans or animals.
The Viral RNA molecules bind to the silica-based media and the impurities such as proteins and nucleases are removed when thoroughly washing with the wash buffer. The RNA is then eluted in sterile, RNase free water. This procedure can be used for the isolation of viral RNA from a broad range of viruses however, performance cannot be guaranteed for every virus species and it must be validated by the customer. The amount of purified viral RNA depends on the virus titer, sample source and type, transport, storage, and age.
The purified viral RNA is suitable for use in RT-PCR and qRT-PCR. It is suitable for use in:
Shipping and Storage:
The Viral RNA Extraction Kit is shipped in ambient temperature and the carrier RNA solution is in a gel pack or dry ice. For storage, all components can be stored at Room Temperature except for the carrier RNA solution which needs to be stored at – 20 degrees Celsius. If any kit reagent forms a precipitate, warm at 55 – 65 degrees until the precipitate dissolves and allow cooling at room temperature before use.
