With Macherey-Nagel’s RNA stabilization reagent, you can skip the flash freeze, easily store and transport tissue samples and cells, and extract RNA on your schedule
No Liquid nitrogen. No dry ice. Nontoxic.
RNA is extremely sensitive to degradation, but it’s not always practical to extract RNA at the time when tissue is sampled. Traditionally, researchers have turned to flash freezing the tissue to preserve RNA for later extraction. NucleoProtect is a more innovative alternative that doesn’t tie you to a liquid nitrogen tank.
The NucleoProtect reagent from Macherey- Nagel™ permeates through up to 5mm of tissue, aggregated nucleases, and fixes RNA without any toxic side effects. RNA can be recovered from tissue submerged in NucleoProtect months or years later.
