Applied Biosystems® TaqMan® Ribosomal RNA Control Reagents are designed to detect the 18S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene. The TaqMan® probe and primer sequences were designed following Rapid Assay Development Guidelines. The TaqMan® probe and primer sequences are conserved among a diverse group of eukaryotes including human, rat, mouse, Xenopus, Saccharomyces, Giardia, and Arabidopsis. Ribosomal RNA levels provide an endogenous control for PCR quantitation studies. • Pre-designed primers and TaqMan® probe eliminate assay design • Rapid Assay Development Guidelines can minimize optimization time • S...

RNAlater®-ICE is a novel reagent for transitioning frozen tissue to a state that is easily processed for extraction of high quality RNA. Frozen tissues are simply submerged in RNAlater®-ICE and allowed to thaw overnight at -20°C. Once thawed, the tissues can be processed like fresh tissues using standard RNA isolation procedures. No more laborious grinding of frozen tissue to safeguard the RNA. • Process previously frozen tissues like freshly harvested samples • Thawing tissues in RNAlater®-ICE protects RNA from degradation • No more tissue pulverizing with mortar and pestle and awkward transf...

0.5-10 Kb RNA Ladder is suitable for sizing single-stranded RNA ranging from 0.5 kb to 10 kb in glyoxal or formaldehyde agarose gels. The ladder consists of nine bands in even increments (0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 kb) to simplify size estimation. The 1.5 kb band is more intense than the other bands, allowing easy orientation and identification of RNA bands on the gel. All RNA molecules in the ladder are polyA-tailed (40 nt) for convenient use as control templates for cDNA synthesis.

THE Ambion® RNA Storage Solution is a buffer that provides greater RNA stability than standard 0.1 mM EDTA or TE Buffer. This 1 mM sodium citrate, pH 6.4 +/- 0.2 buffer is provided in one bottle containing 50 mL. The last step in every RNA isolation protocol is to resuspend the purified RNA pellet. After painstakingly isolating the RNA, it is crucial that the pellet be suspended and stored in a safe, RNase-free solution. THE RNA Storage Solution has two features that minimize base hydrolysis of RNA: a low pH, and sodium citrate, which is an efficient chelating agent. THE RNA Storage Solution i...

0.1-2 Kb RNA Ladder is suitable for sizing single-stranded RNA from 0.1 to 2 kb in glyoxal or formaldehyde agarose gels. The ladder consists of ten bands in even increments (0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 kb) to simplify size estimation. The 0.3 kb band is more intense than the other bands, allowing easy orientation and identification of RNA bands on the gel. All RNA molecules in the ladder are polyA-tailed (40 nt) for convenient use as control templates for cDNA synthesis.

Variation in RNA expression data can be attributed to a variety of factors including the quality of the starting material, the level of cellularity and RNA yield, the platform employed, and the person performing the experiment. To control for these sources of variability, a common set of external RNA controls has been developed by the External RNA Controls Consortium (ERCC), an ad-hoc group of academic, private, and public organizations hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The controls consist of a set of unlabeled, polyadenylated transcripts designed to be adde...
