New Products: SciGene's CytoZyme Stabilized Pepsin

Premium

SciGene this week launched CytoZyme Stabilized Pepsin, an advanced liquid formulation of pepsin for pre-treating tissue samples in nucleic acid probe-based cytogenetic assays.

According to SciGene, CytoZyme is a ready-to-use solution of purified pepsin that can be stored in the refrigerator without loss of activity. The firm sees it as a replacement for dry powder forms of pepsin that "vary in activity" and can "negatively affect test results."
