biotechrabbit™ GenUP Blood RNA Kit is designed for fast isolation of total RNA from up to 1 ml whole blood from fresh or frozen samples that have been stabilized with EDTA or citrate. Erythrocytes are removed in an initial lysis step. After an second lysis step, genomic DNA is bound to a Mini Filter DNA, which can be discarded. RNA is selectively bound to a Mini Filter RNA, washed with two different buffers and eluted. Including lysis, isolated RNA is available in approximately 45 min. The isolated RNA is suitable for a wide range of different molecular biology applications, including RT-PCR.

The GenUP Blood RNA Kit is designed for the use with blood. For other starting material, such as cell-free body fluids (including cerebrospinal fluid, serum, plasma or urine), tissue, stool samples, buffy coat, cultured or isolated cells, swabs, dried blood spots, viruses, fungi, bacteria or parasites, please refer to the GenUP Total RNA Kit (BR07009), GenUP Virus RNA Kit (BR07010), GenUP Virus DNA/RNA Kit (BR07011) or UPzol RNA Isolation Solution (BR07001).


Fresh whole blood; stabilized with EDTA or citrate (0.5–1.0 ml)


Approximately 45 min


> 20 µg RNA


Variable depending on the starting material; 1–8 µg RNA


  • Homogenize and lyse 0.5–1.0ml whole blood sample by adding Buffer LYSIS LE, incubate and centrifuge.
  • Transfer the lysate to the Mini Filter DNA (blue).
  • Centrifuge, and discard the Mini Filter DNA.
  • Add equal volume 70% ethanol and transfer the filtrate to the Mini Filter RNA (violet).
  • Centrifuge.
  • Add Buffer WASH A and centrifuge.
  • Add Buffer WASH B and centrifuge.
  • Centrifuge once more to remove residual ethanol.
  • Elute RNA with Water, RNase-free (for ELUTION) and centrifuge.
  • Purified RNA in the Elution Tube is ready for use.

For detailed protocol, please, refer to the product manual (Related Documents).
