RevoluGen's Purispin Fire Monkey Kit

RevoluGen has launched its Purispin Fire Monkey kit for nucleic acid isolation and purification. The kit uses the company's proprietary, gentler chemistry that makes an improved quality of nucleic acid isolation, shown by the longer lengths of sequences preserved for further analysis. Another key advantage of the new kit's isolation and purification process is that a single kit can be directed midway during the process which allows delivery of total Nucleic Acid or pure DNA or pure RNA from the same sample.
