Bacterial RNA Extraction
Effective cell lysis is a required first step for extraction of good yields of high quality RNA. Yeast and many bacterial strains can be difficult to disrupt because, unlike eukaryotic cells, they are protected by cell walls. Mechanical disruption or enzymatic pretreatment are typically used to thoroughly disrupt bacterial and yeast cells for RNA isolation. We offer a wide selection of RNA purification reagents and kits that are optimized to provide maximum yield, purity, and integrity from bacteria and yeast in several format options.
