Application environment. (1) Role of RNA in gene expression and protein production, (2) extracted RNA molecules, measurement of RNA sizes applying Agilents 2100 bioanalyzer and (3) assignment of integrity categories to RNA samples. In the sample, RNA molecules of different sizes occur, which is measured by the 2100 bioanalyzer. The distinction with regard to integrity is based on this size distribution in each sample.
