Empirical Bioscience EB Pure Total RNA & DNase 1 Digestion Kits

Emiprical Bioscience has launched its EB Pure Total RNA kit and the EB Pure DNase 1 Digestion kit to quickly and reliably purify RNA from cells or soft tissue. 

The firm's EB Pure Total RNA Kit reversibly binds RNA under optimized conditions, allowing researchers to remove proteins and other contaminants from the sample. The tool also allows RNA binding in high-salt and elution in a low-salt buffer. Each column can bind up to 100 microliters and does not need organic extractions or additional precipitations. The tool produces high and stable recovery rates within 20 minutes. The EB Pure DNase 1 Digestion kit can be used alongside the EB Pure Total RNA Kit in order for further DNA removal, the firm said.
