Universal Reference RNAs - Details & Specifications

Universal Human Reference RNA

Agilent's Universal Human Reference RNA is composed of total RNA from 10 human cell lines. The reference RNA is designed to be used as a reference for microarray gene-profiling experiments. Since RNA species differ in abundance between cell lines, an ideal reference sample should represent these different RNAs. Equal quantities of  DNase-treated total RNA from each cell line were pooled to make the Universal Human Reference RNA.  This Universal Reference RNA is suitable for microarray experiments.  Stratagene also supplies a QPCR Human Reference Total RNA, suitable for QRT-PCR, which has undergone further DNase treatment.

Universal Mouse Reference RNA

Agilent's Universal Mouse Reference RNA (UMRR) is composed of total RNA from 11 mouse cell lines. The reference RNA is designed to be used as a reference for microarray gene-profiling experiments. Since RNA species differ in abundance between cell lines, an ideal reference sample should represent these different RNAs. Equal quantities of DNase-treated total RNA from each cell line were pooled to make the Universal Mouse Reference RNA. This Universal Reference RNA is suitable for mouse microarray experiments.

Universal Rat Reference RNA

Agilent's Universal Rat Reference RNA is composed of total RNA from 14 rat cell lines. The reference RNA is designed to be used as a reference for microarray gene-profiling experiments. since RNA species differ in abundance between cell lines, an ideal reference sample should represent these different RNAs. Equal quantities of DNase-treated total RNA from each cell line were pooled to make the Universal Rat Reference RNA.
