The Monarch RNA Cleanup Kits provide a fast and simple silica spin column-based solution for RNA cleanup and concentration after any enzymatic reaction (including in vitro transcription, DNase I treatment, capping and labeling) and after other purification methods such as phenol/chloroform extraction. The Monarch RNA Cleanup Kits are available in 3 different binding capacities: 10 μg (NEB #T2030), 50 μg (NEB #T2040) and 500 μg (NEB #T2050). Each kit contains unique columns, all designed to prevent buffer retention and ensure no carryover of contaminants, enabling low-volume elution of highly-pure RNA. Following the standard protocol, RNA ≥ 25 nt is purified with this kit; however, a modified protocol is available to enable the binding of RNA as small as 15 nt (including miRNAs).
Reasons to choose Monarch for RNA Cleanup
- Choose from 3 different binding capacities and elution volumes
- Quickly and easily purify large quantities of high-quality RNA from in vitro transcription (IVT) reactions
- Efficiently remove unincorporated nucleotides from your RNA sample

|Monarch Total RNA Miniprep Kit|
I often purify small amounts of inserts for ligations, so I appreciate the ability to elute in small volumes. I also very much appreciate the reduction of paper and plastic waste.
