MonarchKits_DNA_RNAPurification of DNA and RNA is an essential step in many molecular biology workflows, including enzyme digests, transformation, electrophoresis, RT-PCR, RT-qPCR and library preparation for next gen sequencing. Monarch kits enable quick and easy purification of high-quality DNA and RNA, suitable for use in a variety of downstream applications. Recover pure, intact DNA and RNA in minutes with fast, user-friendly protocols and optimized buffer systems, and focus your time on the experiments that will drive your research forward.

Monarch kits are all designed with sustainability in mind; whenever possible, kits and components are made with significantly less plastic and are packaged with responsibly-sourced, recyclable packaging.

We have been using Qiagen for a very long time but when we tested the Monarch kit, we were surprised at how much more product we were able to collect. Great kits, easy to use protocols!! A+
