RNeasy PowerWater Kit

For the isolation of total RNA from filtered water samples
  • Rapid RNA isolation from water samples in less than 40 minutes
  • Highly pure RNA extraction in turbid water samples from all water-borne microorganisms
  • Ready-to-use, inhibitor-free RNA for downstream applications

Isolate RNA from all microbes present in environmental water samples with the RNeasy PowerWater Kit. The kit is designed to isolate RNA from bacteria (Gram +/-), algae and fungi. Samples are processed from start to finish, including the RNase step, in 40 minutes. The kit combines mechanical lysis and Inhibitor Removal Technology to yield high-quality, ready-to-use RNA, even with samples containing high amounts of salts, metal, humic acids and other organic materials. Resulting RNA can then be used in RT-PCR, qPCR, RNA-seq and other downstream applications. Want to try this solution for the first time? Request a quote for a trial kit.

RNeasy PowerWater Kit was formerly sold by MO BIO as PowerWater RNA Isolation Kit.
