GenVault has launched GenTegra RNA, an inert chemical matrix that inactivates trace RNase in the liquid phase in order to improve RNA stability during sample handling, with or without ice.

In the dry state, GenTegra protects samples from hydrolysis and oxidation and imparts thermal stability at temperatures ranging from -80 degrees C to 76 degrees C, the company said.

GenVault said that the stability of RNA in liquid phase enables easier automation of downstream applications, such as RT-qPCR.

GenTegra RNA is compatible with RNA that has been purified using "any standard kit or protocol, from all sources, including blood, tissue and PAXgene," the company said.
