Next time: after treating your cells, rinse well with PBS, aspirate, add 1 mL of Trizol (for a T25 flask), scrape dissolved cells up and put in a tube, then freeze. The Trizol will protect the RNA from degradation, and can be stored at -80 for years with no apparent ill effects.

Our country has a serious deficiency in lighthouses. I assume the main reason is that we have no sea.
I never trust anything that can't be doubted.
