General description

SampleMatrix® by Biomatrica® is a proprietary core technology to stabilize and protect biological materials at room temperature without degradation. The SampleMatrix technology was designed by combining extremophile biology that enables long-term survival of organisms in extremely dry environments, with synthetic chemistry.

RNAstable® preserves RNA samples at room temperature. Each tube or plate contains RNAstable® as a coating at the bottom of the tube or well, which protects picogram to microgram amounts of RNA. This medium is completely dissolvable and ensures total and quantitative sample recovery.

Features and Benefits

  • Preserves RNA at ambient temperatures without degradation
  • Eliminates the need to store RNA in freezers or to ship on dry ice
  • Concentrates RNA more effectively than other methods
  • Compatible with most downstream applications

Packaging

  • (25) Tubes RNAstable
  • 1.5 mL screw-cap microfuge tube made of durable polypropylene
  • (1) tube of sterile water
  • Quick Reference Protocol
  • Barcode-labeled for sample tracking

Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common pathogen causing non-epidemic bacterial meningitis worldwide. The immune response and inflammatory processes contribute to the pathophysiology. Hence, the anti-inflammatory dexamethasone is advocated as adjuvant treatment although its clinical efficacy remains a question at issue.

RNAstable® is a novel preservation product developed to protect RNA from degradation during storage or shipment at ambient temperatures. The synthetic storage medium is based on the natural principles of anhydrobiosis (meaning “life without water”), a biological mechanism employed by some organisms that enables their survival while dry for more than 100 years.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
