RNA extraction from blood

I have never tried to extract from whole blood after 24 hours, but within
this period I can get high quality RNA.  Off course the sooner the better.
In my experience Trizol or reagents like it have not worked well for whole
blood (workd fine for other materials).  Currently I am using the kits
from Qiagen, a different kit depending on which type of RNA I am
I hope this helps.
Good luck,
