RNA Extraction Service

Source BioScience offers an RNA Extraction Service to complement our range of well-established Genomic Services.

Using the Qiagen RNeasy mini prep system, we are able to obtain up to 100ug of good-quality RNA − purifying fragments greater than 200 bases.

On completion of RNA extraction, the sample will undergo our standard total RNA QCs, which will be presented in a report for your reference.

Source BioScience also offers DNA Extraction.


We routinely extract RNA from the following sources:

  • Whole blood
  • Buccal swabs
  • Mammalian cell lines/primary cells (cell pellets)
  • Plant and animal tissue
  • Bacteria

We can also extract nucleic acid from a variety of other sources - contact us for more information.
