GIBCO/BRL has a product out called TRIZOL which allows the
homogenization of the sample in the TRIZOL buffer, followed by
precipitation of the RNA from the aqueous phase, DNA from the
interface and proteins from the organic phase.  I routinely use
this for RNA islations, but have not proceeded with either DNA or
protein isolation because it is not necessary for my work.

Hope this helps.
