Meridian Bioscience Lyo-Ready Direct DNA, Direct RNA/DNA qPCR Saliva Mixes

Meridian Bioscience has launched two new master mixes to detect DNA and RNA in crude saliva samples: its Lyo-Ready Direct DNA qPCR Saliva Mix and its Lyo-Ready Direct RNA/DNA qPCR Saliva Mix. Both mixes can be used in liquid format or lyophilized and are optimized for use on crudely processed saliva or sputum samples for improved assay sensitivity and flexible protocols. No further optimization is needed beyond the addition of primers and probes.
