The Quick-RNA Viral Kit is a quick viral RNA purification kit for viral RNA from plasma, serum, cell culture media, cellular suspensions, urine, blood, saliva and any other biological samples stored in DNA/RNA Shield™. DNA/RNA Shield™ ensures nucleic acid stability during sample storage/transport at ambient temperatures (4-25°C). The reagent effectively lyses cells and inactivates nucleases and infectious agents (virus). The kit also features a specialized buffer system that facilitates complete viral particle lysis for efficient RNA isolation from samples containing enteroviruses, rhinoviruses, coronaviruses, HIV, HCV, influenza A virus, flaviviruses, measles virus, parainfluenza virus, parvovirus (a ssDNA virus), etc. Viral RNA is bound to the column, washed and eluted. The isolated high-quality viral RNA is ready for all downstream applications such as Next-Gen Sequencing, hybridization-based and RT/PCR detection.
