RNA clean-up from any reaction


  • NGS-Ready: RNA is ready for all downstream applications including Next-Gen Sequencing, RT-qPCR, hybridization, etc.
  • Ultra-Pure: Eliminate contaminants and inhibitors in 5 minutes.
  • Maximum Recovery: Recover >90% and elute in as little as 25 μl.


The RNA Clean & Concentrator kits are RNA clean up kits that provide a simple and reliable method for the rapid preparation of high-quality RT-PCR-ready, DNA-free (R1013, R1014) RNA. This simple procedure is based on the use of a unique single-buffer system and Zymo-Spin column technology that allows for selective recovery of total RNA (> 17 nt), large RNAs (> 200 nt), and/or small RNAs (17-200 nt). The procedure is easy: Add binding buffer and ethanol to your sample, then bind, wash and elute ultra pure RNA. The RNA can be eluted from the Zymo-Spin IC Column in as little as ≥ 25 µl of RNase-free water. The highly-concentrated, purified RNA is suitable for all subsequent analyses and molecular manipulations.

In experiments designed to investigate RNase E-mediated degradation of mRNAs in cyanobacteria, the RNA Clean & Concentrator-25 was used to both concentrate gel-purified in vitro transcribed RNA as well as to clean up total cellular RNA for reverse transcription following DNase treatment. The researchers found that regulatory antisense RNAs are able to protect mRNA from being degraded by RNase E through forming RNA-RNA complexes with their target mRNA molecules.

Stazic et al. (2011) Antisense RNA protects mRNA from RNase E degradation by RNA–RNA duplex formation during phage infection. Nucleic Acids Res. 39(11), 4890–4899.


"Great for purifying small amounts of RNA. I use a bioanalyzer after and I can see the difference from before, cleaner bands and the concentration increases with a smaller amount of elutant."

- Catherine A. (USAMRIID)

“Kit was easy and fast, and cleaned up my RNA samples very well. It did exactly what I needed it to do.”

- Caroline S. (Cornell University)

"The product is very easy to use, very quick protocol for an excellent RNA clean up. It also purifies small RNA which is not the case of all RNA clean up columns."

- Agnes N. (Biofidal)
