kits and reagents for sample preparation

Store and prep your sample with confidence

Preserving the integrity of your samples is critical to the success of every biobanking project. Biological samples must be prepared for a range of different research objectives and downstream analysis. Our solutions support the stabilization and preparation of a wide range of sample types offering you accurate, reliable performance that you can trust. 

Invitrogen RNAlater Stabilization Solution is an aqueous, nontoxic tissue storage reagent that rapidly permeates tissues to stabilize and protect cellular RNA. RNAlater solution minimizes the need to immediately process tissue samples or to freeze samples in liquid nitrogen for later processing. 

Invitrogren offers several products in the RNaseZAP family that collectively provide a comprehensive approach to help ensure that work surfaces, pipettors, and equipment are RNase-free.  

Invitrogen TRIzol products are referenced in thousands of journal publications, reflecting the trust that molecular biologists have placed in TRIzol reagents to enable high-quality, intact RNA from many kinds of biological materials.

The PureLink kits are a family of nucleic acid purification systems designed to meet the challenges posed by specific nucleic acid types, sample sources and volumes, throughput levels and downstream applications. These kits are based on either silica-membrane technology or anion exchange resin technology.

Magnetic beads offer many benefits for isolating RNA and DNA from cells, tissue, or blood, including more efficient binding and yield than silica membrane methods.

Cell-free DNA or circulating cfDNA is DNA that is found in the bloodstream. This can be captured as a biological sample such as blood, serum, or urine for disease analysis and is suitable for a range of research applications such as real-time PCR, digital PCR, and next-generation sequencing.

Recover DNA and RNA from the same formaldehyde- or paraformaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sample. The DNA and RNA are recovered in separate eluates, and both are compatible with a broad range of applications, including real-time PCR and next-generation sequencing.. Common nucleic acid isolation methods require you to choose which nucleic acid to recover from a given sample, with loss of the other nucleic acid (and any information that may have resulted from its analysis). Alternatively, the DNA and RNA are co-purified, or the sample is split in half so that each can be purified.
