Molecular Biology Research Tools
Lysis and capture of a threshold amount viral RNA is a crucial step to ensure accurate COVID-19 testing. Completely lysis ensures the release of the maximum amount of RNA so that detection can be accurate with low viral loads. The MagBead capture ensures that the targeted Coronavirus RNA is isolated from the sample at a high percentage, again ensuring detection at low volumes and viral loads. Our MagBead RNA Lysis Buffer has already been validated in Ireland by HSE for use at all National Reference Laboratories testing for SARS-CoV-2. We also have viral nucleic acid extraction kits that can be used for a variety of research purposes and work on multiple body fluids including serum and plasma, and also the supernatant of cell cultures.
