Fruit-mate for RNA Purification

Plant RNA extraction, which is often difficult using standard RNA extraction kits, can be easily and effectively performed with Takara's Fruit-mate for RNA Purification kit. The Fruit-mate for RNA Purification kit may be used for plant RNA extraction from a wide variety plant samples such as leaf, seed, rhizome, fruit, etc. These samples often contain large amounts of polysaccharides or polyphenols; thus, Fruit-mate for RNA Purification is ideal for polysaccharide/polyphenol removal because it contains a non-ionic polymer that binds polysaccharides and polyphenols. These substances can then be easily removed from the homogenized sample through a simple centrifugation step.
