Heat&Run gDNA removal kit


The kit contains HL-dsDNase which efficiently removes gDNA from RNA preps.

  • gDNA is removed, leaving RNA ready for reverse transcription in the same tube (Figure 1).
  • Heat-labile dsDNase can easily be inactivated without reducing the quality or quantity of RNA.
  • This procedure minimizes pipetting steps and reduces hands-on time.
  • The Heat&Run kit is especially well suited for high throughput experiments.

The high activity of the HL-dsDNase at low temperature and its heat-lability makes it ideal to use in a combination with a heat activated RT enzyme. The contaminating genomic DNA is cleave at ambient temperature and increasing the temperature over 50°C will inactivate the DNase and start the Reverse Transcriptase.

Heat&Run causes no harmful effect on the amount of RNA being detected in subsequent RT-qPCR. In our experiments, neither mRNA, miRNA nor lnc-RNA was lost or damaged, while gDNA was efficiently and completely removed.

Figure 2: qPCR shows the Heat&Run kit removes at least 50ng of gDNA in a 10µl reaction volume.
