Isolate RNA from up to 30 ml of urine.

Highlights


  • Quick & Easy: Recovery of total RNA from cells, biological sediment in urine, large volume liquid samples and suitable for isolation of RNA from microvesicles. Not for cell-free isolation.
  • High-Quality: RNA is ready for all downstream applications including Next-Gen Sequencing, RT-PCR, etc.

Description


ZR Urine RNA Isolation Kit™ is an innovative product designed for the easy, reliable and rapid isolation of total RNA from cells in urine samples. The product enables isolation of cells from urine using a syringe (not provided) and a uniquely-designed syringe filter. Following separation, cells are lysed and total RNA stabilized using a specially formulated Urine RNA Buffer. The collected lysate can then be used immediately or at a later time following transportation and/or storage. Also, the Urine RNA Buffer is ideal for direct isolation of RNA from microvesicles that may be recovered from urine filtrates. One-step RNA isolation occurs via matrix adsorption using Zymo-Spin™ IC Columns. The RNA isolation procedure is simple and can be performed in less than 5 minutes. Use of the ZR Urine RNA Isolation Kit results in the isolation of high-quality, total RNA from urine samples that is suitable for subsequent analyses of gene expression that include RT-PCR.

RNA was isolated from whole urine using the ZR Urine RNA kit. Researchers found that microvesicles RNA is better preserved compared to whole cells, indicating possible RNA protection during urine passage.
