RNA StdSens Ladder Electropherogram

Electropherogram of the Experion RNA ladder, illustrating relative positions of the lower marker and RNA peaks.

Electropherogram of the Experion RNA Ladder for the mRNA assays illustrating the relative positions of the lower marker and RNA ladder peaks.

Control Total RNA Electropherogram

Separation of the 100 ng/µl mouse liver total RNA sample (scaled to local). Results shown are typical for separations of high integrity total RNA from eukaryotic sources. The two most prominent peaks, aside from the lower alignment marker, represent 18S and 28S ribosomal RNA (rRNA).

Pipet Tips Recommended for Experion Chip Loading

(Narrow-bore tips such as A and B are recommended. Tips C,D,E not recommended.)


Filter tips are always recommended for RNA work.

Examples of recommended pipet tips for loading chips:

For RNA or DNA work:

  • Rainin L-10F
  • Rainin SR-L10F
  • Rainin GP-L10F
  • VWR 87001-688

For protein work:

  • Rainin GP-L10F
  • Rainin GP-10G
  • Rainin GP-10F
  • Rainin GP-10S
  • Rainin GP-10
  • VWR 87001-688

 

RNA Integrity Webinar

November 25, 2009
Arnaud Remy and Michael W. Pfaffl

This two-part webinar by Arnaud Remy (Bio-Rad) and Michael W. Pfaffl (Technical University of Munich) discusses the technology and principles of RNA analysis by automated electrophoresis and compares the use of two available platforms for the determinations of RNA integrity, an essential step in quantitative PCR experiments. Duration: 48 min.

The Experion™ RNA StdSens starter kit is intended for new or experienced users of the Experion automated electrophoresis system. This kit contains all materials necessary to get started with RNA analysis on the Experion system, allowing the user to practice techniques and analyze data or validate the system using a known total RNA standard. Get started or practice with step-by-step instructions and tips for successful microfluidic separations using the provided standard before moving on to your own samples. This kit provides information on:

  • How best to prepare and load an RNA chip
  • How to confirm RNA quality and integrity
  • Tips and common mistakes

The RNA StdSens starter kit contains:

  • Experion StdSens RNA reagents
  • Experion StdSens RNA chips
  • RNase-free polypropylene tips
  • RNase-free polypropylene microcentrifuge tubes
  • DEPC water
  • Spin filters
  • Electrode cleaner
  • Cleaning swabs
  • Cleaning chips
  • Total RNA control sample
