RNAstable® is a unique storage medium that preserves RNA samples at room temperature. RNAstable® enables you to store RNA samples for months. Using RNAstable®, you can completely recover your RNA samples by simple rehydration - just add water. Rehydrated samples are ready for immediate use, without the need for further purification.
Each tube or plate contains RNAstable® provided as a coating at the bottom of the tube or well, which protects picogram to microgram amounts of RNA.
This product is for R&D use only, not for drug, household, or other uses. Please consult the Safety Data Sheet for information regarding hazards and safe handling practices.
RNAstable® products and kits should be stored dry in their original unopened packaging at ambient laboratory temperatures ready for use. The RNAstable® products are supplied in moisture-barrier foil bags along with a desiccant pack. The sample pouch allows for dry storage, even in uncontrolled humidity environments, and serves as an alternative to storage in a dry storage cabinet.
Notes on Sample Preparation
Types of RNA. Suitable types of RNA that can be stored in RNAstable® include purified total RNA from cells or tissues, and poly(A) mRNA.
Purification Techniques. Most standard molecular biology techniques and/or commercially available kits are compatible with RNAstable® storage. Purified RNA that is RNase-free should be resuspended in DEPC- treated water prior to application into RNAstable®.
Determining yield. The concentration of the RNA sample should be determined prior to sample application into RNAstable®. Although not essential, applying a known amount of RNA into RNAstable® for storage can facilitate sample retrieval and subsequent applications. For optimal protection in RNAstable®, do not apply more than a total of
100 μg of RNA per well or tube in a maximum volume of 100 μL water.
RNA stored in RNAstable® can be recovered by the addition of water or aqueous buffer. Samples are ready for downstream applications without the need for further purification.
