A CE version of RNA Complete BCT is now available

RNA Complete BCT

RNA Complete BCT is a blood collection tube that maintains the draw time concentration of cell-free RNA and extracellular vesicles, such as exosomes, for up to 7 days at room temperature. Once isolated from stored plasma, the cfRNA and isolated EVs are suitable for many downstream applications, including ddPCR and NGS.

RNA Complete BCT blood collection tube for cell-free RNA and extracellular vesicles

RNA Complete BCT is a direct draw blood collection tube that maintains the draw time concentration of cell-free RNA and extracellular vesicles, such as exosomes. The preservative stabilizes cfRNA and exosome counts for up to 7 days when stored at room temperature, maximizing plasma yield and minimizing hemolysis during storage. By limiting the degradation of white and red blood cells, the specialized chemistry provides sample integrity during storage, shipping, and handling of blood samples.

Cell-free RNA next-generation sequencing workflow for RNA Complete BCT

Next-generation sequencing has revolutionized medicine. RNA-based whole-transcriptome approaches provide a valuable dynamic view of disease. However, a hurdle in said testing is that patient samples are not stable and RNA sequencing experiments target low levels of disease-specific cell-free RNA. This workflow describes the steps Streck used to perform cell-free RNA sequencing.
