Q: What is the difference between cRNA and just RNA? A: cRNA is our acronym for comprehensive RNA, which is isolated via phase extraction instead of silica columns, and thus we are able to co-purify small RNA species. Normally, total RNA or just RNA is interpreted as RNA isolated using silica membrane. cRNA has more complete profile of small and micro RNAs in addition to normal RNA due to the difference in isolation methods.
