RNA extraction from FTA classic - (Feb/25/2011 )

Hi! Has anyone used Boom or a Qiagen protocol to extract RNA from the FTA classic filter paper? Im struggling to get it to work!
Would appreciate any advice, thanks!


FTA card is only good for DNA, for RNA, you will have to use RNASound RNA cards from, RNA are easily eluted off card punches later and leave DNA and protein trapped in paper matrix.
