Does your experiment call for numerous samples, and you want to ensure the RNAs remain intact before you can proceed with extraction? Do you want to postpone RNA extraction until more convenient and wish to avoid snap-freezing your tissues or cells? Or do you have no access to liquid nitrogen at the time and place of sampling?
We have a solution for you!
Lexogen’s RNA/DNA Defender Solution is a non-toxic storage solution that stabilizes fragile RNA molecules in fresh tissue and cell culture samples, protecting them from degradation. Preserving RNA is crucial for maintaining the gene expression profile of your samples.
Upon collection, place your samples (tissue pieces or pelleted cells) in RNA/DNA Defender Solution and carry on with your experiment. RNA/DNA Defender Solution will quickly permeate your samples, stabilizing RNA and DNA molecules for up to one day at 37 °C, one week at room temperature, one month at 4°C, or up to one year at -20 °C. Using RNA/DNA Defender Solution eliminates the need to snap-freeze or immediately process your samples, giving you the ease of mind, especially when handling numerous samples simultaneously.
Storage of tissue and cells in RNA/DNA Defender Solution is compatible with most RNA extraction methods, such as acid phenol extractions or column-based one-step kits. We recommend proceeding with our SPLIT RNA Extraction Kit to obtain high-quality, high-purity RNA for seamless library preparation for Next Generation Sequencing or other challenging applications.
