QIAamp Viral RNA Mini Kit simplifies viral RNA purification from cell-free body fluids with fast spin-column, vacuum and plate centrifugation procedures. Viral RNA binds specifically to the QIAamp silica membrane, and pure viral RNA is eluted in either water or a buffer provided with the kit. Purification can be fully automated on the QIAcube Connect MDx using the QIAamp Viral RNA Mini Kit or dedicated QIAamp Viral RNA Mini QIAcube Kit.
QIAamp Viral RNA Mini standard protocol can also be executed using the TRACKMAN Connected system, paired with PIPETMAN M Connected pipettes, both from Gilson. The TRACKMAN Connected system guides researchers through QIAamp Viral RNA protocol while automatically adjusting the Bluetooth-enabled PIPETMAN M Connected pipette settings. Each step of the protocol execution is recorded to accelerate reporting by generating a comprehensive run report.
The high-quality viral RNA isolated using the QIAamp Viral RNA Mini Kit performs well in a wide range of downstream applications, including viral genotyping, viral epidemiology and infectious disease research.
The QIAamp 96 Viral RNA Kit has been successfully used to recover RNA from viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 virus. Performance of the QIAamp 96 Viral RNA Kit is comparable to that achieved with the QIAamp Viral RNA Mini Kit. RNA isolation is proven from commonly used saliva collection and stabilization methods and no cross-contamination was detected
Optimized buffers and enzymes lyse samples, stabilize nucleic acids and enhance selective RNA adsorption to the QIAamp membrane. To guarantee RNA integrity, samples are lysed under highly denaturing conditions to inactivate RNases. Alcohol is added and lysates loaded onto the QIAamp spin column or 96-well plate. Wash buffers are used to remove impurities and pure, ready-to-use RNA is then eluted in water or low-salt buffer.
QIAamp RNA technology yields viral RNA from cell-free body fluids ready to use in RT-PCR and blotting procedures. QIAamp sample preparation technology is fully licensed.
No phenol–chloroform extraction is required. Viral RNA binds specifically to the QIAamp silica membrane while contaminants pass through. PCR inhibitors, such as divalent cations and proteins, are completely removed in two efficient wash steps, leaving pure viral RNA to be eluted in either water or a buffer provided with the kit.
QIAamp Viral RNA Kits simplify viral RNA purification from cell-free body fluids, offering fast spin-column, vacuum or plate centrifugation procedures, or automation on QIAcube. Sample types include:
