General description

BCP can be used in place of chloroform and is less toxic. The use of BCP in the single-step TRI reagent method decreases the possibility of contaminating RNA with DNA. It does not adversely affect quality or quantity of the isolated RNA. 1-Bromo-3-chloropropane is a phase separation reagent used in protocols for isolation of nucleic acids.

Application

1-Bromo-3-chloropropane has been used in molecular biology applications for the isolation of high quality RNA from:
  • feline teeth
  • mice brain and liver tissues
  • human ectocervical epithelial cells
  • placental samples
  • human mesenchymal stromal cells (hMSCs)

Packaging

200 mL in glass bottle

Features and Benefits

  • less toxic alternative to chloroform
  • compatible with TRI reagent for isolation of RNA with decreased DNA contamination

Other Notes
