At BioChain, we use proprietary isolation techniques to efficiently extract total RNA from samples such as tissues, cell lines, and blood. Our methods protect the RNA as it is being isolated, so you can expect the highest quality possible for each sample type. In fact, RIN values of >8* are achievable using our extraction protocol (see Figure 1).

We also have a comprehensive collection of normal, diseased, and tumor tissues from a wide variety of species to choose from, and our extraction techniques preserve the small RNA fraction, including miRNA.

We can save you valuable research time and money by eliminating the hassle of locating and extracting RNA from a variety of sample types. Our procurement services can also help you find rare materials – enabling you to perform experiments that you thought were impossible.
