I'd try to dialyze the samples. For microscale I use circullar
~25mm filters from Millipore, Catalogue No. VSWP 025 00 (no
connections with the company). Just put the filter on the surfice
of water or desired buffer, place aliquots (5-50ul) and collect
them after few minutes. Sorry, but I don't know whether they are
free of RNAses. Cheers. Slawek.
