One spin, one dedicated kit – selection wheels make it possible

Selection kit header

It can be a real struggle sometimes to find and select the right isolation kit, whether it is for RNA or genomic DNA (gDNA) purification. Not using the right kit for your experiments has major consequences, however – the impact could be as severe as not being able to publish your results. Or worse, finding that other researchers were able to publish similar results to yours earlier than you were, because you selected the wrong kit and had to go back and redo your experiments. 

The difficulty of selecting the right kit is clear even when narrowing your focus to QIAGEN’s kits only – a wide range of dedicated kits are being produced and offered for both manual and automated gDNA or RNA purification, many of them tailored to specific purposes. So, how can you be sure you’re using the right kit?

Two selection wheels have been designed to guide you to the optimal kit choice depending on the starting material, DNA or RNA type and throughput. To make your life even easier, the individual kits are also marked with an asterisk should they be automatable on the QIAcube.
