AMSBIO announce RNAdvantage—the first product in a new range of stabilization solutions that provide robust protection for your RNA samples at ambient temperature. Designed to protect and preserve RNA from most tissues, cultured cells, bacteria, and yeast for up to 14-days, RNAdvantage eliminates the traditional costs of flash freezing samples, dry-ice shipping, and freezer storage.

From the point at which your tissue samples are collected, RNAdvantage permeates the tissue to stabilize the RNA at room temperature. Samples can also be protected upon purification with no extra clean-up steps. With no need for immediate flash freezing, labs can now be flexible with their use and storage of RNA samples. This ability to immediately stabilize samples at room temperature after collection ensures high RNA integrity for RNAseq experiments, no rtPCR inhibition, and rapid RNase inactivation.

Using RNAdvantage, RNA Integrity Numbers (RIN) meet or exceed the required levels for core sequencing facilities, even when tissue samples are stored for two weeks at room temperature. This ensures excellent sequencing results due to the robust stabilization provided by RNAdvantage. All of this, while reducing shipping and storage costs.
