Meridian Bioscience Air-Dryable Direct RNA/DNA qPCR Blood Mix

Meridian Bioscience launched its Air-Dryable Direct RNA/DNA qPCR Blood Mix, a master mix for developing room-temperature stable molecular diagnostic tests that directly amplify RNA from crude whole blood, serum, or plasma. The mix eliminates the need for an extraction step in a qPCR test by using specialized enzymes and an advanced buffer formulation pre-optimized specifically for whole blood, serum, and plasma. It was designed to be compatible with air-drying in an oven while maintaining the highest activity and sensitivity, bypassing the costs associated with cold storage or lyophilization, Meridian said.
