GenTegra LLC launches new RNA ambient stabilization product
GenTegra LLC, Pleasanton, CA, announces launch of GenTegra®-RNA dry Bulk.
GenTegra-RNA is groundbreaking technology for the stabilization, transport and storage of purified RNA. GenTegra is a water-soluble, inert chemical matrix that inactivates trace RNase in the liquid phase, providing an added level of RNA stability during sample handling, with or without using an ice bucket. In the dry-state, GenTegra-RNA imparts thermal stability at temperatures ranging from -80°C to 76°C and ensures quantitative recovery of RNA upon rehydration.
With the addition of GenTegra-RNA dry BULK to its line of products GenTegra LLC now offers a product that is ideally suited for automated processing of RNA samples. Mike Hogan, GenTegra’s CSO stated, “I am proud that dry bulk form of GenTegra-RNA allows us to offer its protection to applications that were not previously feasible. Researchers now have GenTegra-RNA in a form that is ideal for stabilizing RNA samples during automated processing.” As delivered the product has an unlimited shelf life and is ready for use by simply adding water.
Using GenTegra-RNA early in the RNA purification process provides protection at the earliest possible moment to ensure the highest possible yield of RNA. The protection extends to virtually all forms of RNA. After sample processing the RNA solution can be dried for permanent safe ambient storage of the sample until needed.
GenTegra-RNA is ideal for protecting RNA samples that need shipping from one research lab to another. Protection from GenTegra-RNA spans the complete range of temperatures defined by both FedEx shipping and for military uses. Full protection is provided in the range of -80°C to +56°C for up to 7 months. When stored at ambient temperatures the samples are completely stable for years.
GenTegra-RNA also protects through multiple rehydration and re-drying cycles allowing up to five aliquots to be taken from the sample over time.
GenTegra-RNA dry Bulk is in stock and ready for immediate shipment.
