Bioline Isolate II Nucleic Acid Purification Kits

Bioline, a subsidiary of Meridian Bioscience, has launched five kits as part of its Isolate II nucleic acid purification product portfolio. The new kits are: Isolate II miRNA, Plant miRNA, Biofluids RNA, RNA/DNA/Protein, and FFPE RNA/DNA.

The new kits are based on silica membrane spin column technology and optimized buffer chemistry; feature simple bind-wash-elute steps; and are designed for rapid, phenol-free isolation of high-quality nucleic acids, including miRNA, even from difficult-to-process samples, Bioline said. The new kits also efficiently purify high-quality large RNA species such as mRNA, the company said.
