New Promega Maxwell® RSC miRNA Plasma and Serum Kit Provides Quick, Automated miRNA Purification for Oncology and Translational Researchers

Promega Corporations new Maxwell RSC miRNA Plasma and Serum Kit offers oncology and translational researchers an easy and automated protocol to purify total circulating RNA, including miRNA, from plasma, serum and enriched exosomes for advance techniques such as NGS or ddPCR. Unlike manual miRNA purification products, the new kit is designed to be used with the Promega Maxwell RSC and RSC 48 instruments, reducing hands-on time for researchers and providing consistent, high quality and amplifiable miRNA.

This protocol is a real timesaver in the lab, says Chris Moreland, Promega Global Product Manager. The convenience of walkaway automation allows researchers to concentrate on higher valued work. Plus, the kit eliminates the need for multiple extraction protocols for researchers wanting total RNA that includes miRNA from plasma or exosomes.

Promega introduced the Maxwell RSC miRNA Plasma and Serum Kit to the market this week. The kit builds on the companys growing offering of tools and technologies for oncology researchers, including the Maxwell RSC miRNA Tissue Kit, which Promega launched in 2015.
