The PAXgene Blood RNA System is a revolutionary, enabling technology that consolidates and integrates the key steps of whole blood collection, nucleic acid stabilization, and RNA purification. By minimizing the unpredictability associated with RNA processing, the system provides enhanced accuracy of intracellular RNA analysis.
The PAXgene system is standardized on convenient BD Vacutainer technology, enhancing patient and health care worker safety, providing sample protection, and facilitating consistent blood volumes.
The PAXgene tube contains a proprietary reagent that immediately stabilizes intracellular RNA for 3 days at room temperature (18–25°C) and 5 days at 2–8°C. The ability to batch samples, minimize processing, and eliminate freezing urgency greatly enhances lab efficiency and made this technology widely used in expression analysis based on blood.
The PAXgene kit uses a unique version of QIAGEN’s proven separation and purification technology. The purification process is designed to provide high quality RNA from samples that have been stabilized in the PreAnalytiX reagent.
The PAXgene Blood RNA System provides pharmaceutical, CRO, and research institutions with a completely integrated approach to RNA purification. No special kits. No uncertainty. One integrated product — from blood collection to pure RNA.
