The HighPrep Total RNA Isolation Kit - iSWAB™ is a paramagnetic bead-based system optimized for efficient purification of high-quality total RNA from samples collected using the MAWI iSWAB V2 Collection Kit (ISWAB-RNA-v2) for numerous high-performance RNA downstream applications such as RT-PCR, microarrays, cDNA synthesis. As a paramagnetic bead-based system, the HighPrep Total RNA Isolation Kit - iSWAB™ can be used in a high-throughput format, hence adaptable to numerous commercially available workstations.

This is a short overview of the protocol, for all detailed protocols, please refer to PRODUCT DOCUMENTS
    1. Trasnfer 600uL of samples from the iSWAB-RNA-v2 Tubt to a DNase/RNase free Eppendorf tube.
    2. Centrifuge cells at 5000 x g for 10 mins and remove supernatant.
    3. Add 500uL LB Buffer to cells and incubate at RT Centrifuge sample at 10,000 x g for 10mins.
    4. Add CE Buffer to the lysate in a 1:1 ratio.

Add 10uL MAG-R4 Particles to each sample. Pipette mix and incubate at RT for 10mins.

  1. Wash steps using RW1 and RB2 Buffer.
