One of the great features of the Agilent RNA kits is the patented RNA Integrity Number (RIN) which is the industry standard for RNA quality assessment. It provides fast, easy and precise integrity checks and sample quantification before any RNA dependent application.
The RNA integrity number (RIN) is a software tool designed estimate the integrity of total RNA samples. The software automatically assigns an integrity number to a eukaryote total RNA sample. Using this tool, sample integrity is no longer determined by the ratio of the ribosomal bands, but by the entire electrophoresis trace of the RNA sample. This includes the presence or absence of degradation products. The assigned RIN is independent of sample concentration, instrument and analyst therefore becoming a de facto standard for RNA integrity.
Ensure repeatability of experiments.
