At BioChain, we use proprietary isolation techniques to efficiently extract total RNA from tissues, including difficult sample types such as cartilage.  Our methods protect the RNA as it is being isolated and stored, so you can expect the highest quality possible for each sample typ. For example, RIN values of >8* are achievable using our extraction protocol.

Our extraction techniques have also been optimized to collect RNA of a wide array of sizes, including small RNAs such as miRNA, siRNA, snRNA, and piRNA. To confirm the presence of the desired RNA size classes in each lot of material, we include gel photos on our datasheets, which you can generally access online.  RIN scores are frequently listed as well, or are available on request, so you can be certain of your starting material when you begin a new project.

We have a comprehensive collection of normal, diseased, and tumor tissues from a wide variety of species to choose from. We also offer custom procurement and collection services, so that you can be sure to get exactly the RNA extracts that you need – including RNA from non-mammalian animals and plants.

Therefore, 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.
