RNA extraction from agarose gel

Post by HELISA » Tue Aug 19, 2008 6:40 pm

Does anyone know a good kit to extract RNA from agarose gel ?
The quality of RNA should be good enough to do RT-PCR.
I found one kit online - Zymoclean Gel RNA Recovery Kit - but I'm not sure if it's good.
Does anyone has experience with it?
I appreciate all the suggestions! :)

I don't work with RNA so I do not have much to offer. But if I remember correctly the company that make the zymo kits was offering free trials of their products in the US.
QIagen is probably doing some kind of kits for that too.
