Urine RNA Concentration, Preservation and Isolation Kit

Norgen’s Urine RNA Concentration, Preservation and Isolation Kit is an all-in-one solution designed for:

  1. Rapid and simple urine concentration;
  2. Preservation of RNA from concentrated urine samples at ambient temperature;
  3. Isolation of high quality, inhibitor-free urine RNA within a laboratory setting.

Norgen's Urine RNA Concentration, Preservation and Isolation Kit contains Individual Urine Concentration and Preservation Devices, as well as the required columns and reagents for the subsequent laboratory isolation of the urine RNA from the preserved samples. Each of the Individual Urine Concentration and Preservation Devices consists of 2 key components: (1) a Urine Concentration Tube, and (2) Norgen’s Urine Preservative contained within sealed squeezable ampules.

Urine RNA that has been concentrated and preserved using the Urine Concentration and Preservation Device is stable for years at room temperature. This kit is ideal for concentrating, preserving, shipping and isolating RNA samples for epidemiological and population studies. The purified urine RNA is compatible with most molecular biological applications such as gene regulation and functional analysis, including RT-PCR, northern blotting and microarray analysis.
