Isolating high-quality, intact RNA is a necessary precursor for many methods used in molecular biology such as northern blotting, RT-PCR, and microarray analysis. However, RNA extraction can be notoriously complicated due to the abundant presence of ribonuclease enzymes (RNases) in cells and tissues that can quickly degrade the RNA. Therefore, it’s important that the correct tools and protocols be used when extracting RNA.
