DNA/RNA Shield Protects against Freeze-Thaw Cycling Bias
Simplify Handling of Microbial Samples
Complete Pathogen Inactivation
DNA/RNA Shield also abides by the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) guidelines for pathogen inactivation.
DNA/RNA Shield lyses and effectively inactivates pathogens in a sample. This includes tough-to-lyse microbes or viruses without the need for additional steps, such as heat-treatment, homogenization, or alcohol sterilization.
DNA/RNA Shield has been rigorously tested to ensure inactivation of the toughest viruses.
No reagent removal
