The Express MgPureTM Viral RNA purification kit provides an easy and reliable method for isolating total viral RNA from plasma, serum, nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal aspirates or washes, nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs, broncheoalveolar lavage, tracheal aspirates, and sputum. This procedure has been tested for isolating nucleic acids from COVID-19, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis C and HIV. The isolated RNA can be used for PCR, qRT-PCR and other downstream applications. This protocol can be easily adapted to major automation platforms such as Kingfisher, Biomek, Hamilton, and many others.
