HybSpeed RPA Kit

I had similar trouble with their kit.  The first thing that I did was to 
make sure that my labeled probe and sample RNA was EXTREMELY clean before 
the first precipitation.  Then, I included a 70% ETOH wash of my final 
pellet before resuspending in gel loading buffer.

Hope this helps.
