The Mag-Bind® Total RNA Kit provides a novel technology for total RNA isolation. This kit allows the rapid and reliable isolation of high-quality total cellular RNA from a wide variety of cells and tissues. The system combines the efficient nucleic acid-binding properties of Mag-Bind® Particles with the E.Z.N.A.® RNA isolation system to provide superior quality RNA. Unlike column-based systems, the binding of nucleic acids to magnetic particles occurs in solution resulting in increased binding kinetics and binding efficiency. Particles are also completely re-suspended during the wash steps of the purification protocol, which improves removal of contaminants and increases nucleic acid purity. Mag-Bind® Total RNA procedure can be fully automated with most robotic workstations.
