RNAssist on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As the coronavirus situation rapidly evolves, RNAssist is contributing SARS-CoV-2 testing reagents, tools and protocols.

We are working with researchers, the biotech community and the broader life science industry on ways we together can accelerate diagnostics for COVID-19. Among other efforts, we have produced SARS-CoV-2 sample collection and virus inactivation tubes (VTM) and demonstrated robust room-temperature liquid SARS-CoV-2 stabilisation. We are optimising streamlined SARS-CoV-2 sample preparation protocols in order to improve testing throughput.

We are grateful to the healthcare professionals on the front lines who are fighting to contain the virus and helping patients with COVID-19.

``It’s working amazingly for my project``

Sanger Institute

``The signals are very good``

University of Cambridge

``RNAssist samples have more reads per cell ... single cell libraries are better with RNAssist than without”

Sanger Institute

``I think the RNAssist is an amazing technology with important applications for us. And the results are quite amazing``

University of Calgary

``What I am seeing is that RNA quality is very high. The quality was higher than the corresponding methanol fixed tumour``

University of Oxford

`` we have beautiful results in histopathology and similar beautiful IHC ``

CFIA

``I can tell you that RNAssist is very good for storage of fixed tissue samples and further histological staining with hematoxilin and Eosin``

RNAssist is a universal tissue fixation and RNA stabilization reagent.

This non-toxic formalin-free tissue fixative ensures the preservation of both tissue histomorphology and biomolecules. RNAssist prevents the degradation of proteins, DNA, RNA and mRNA. When compared to products such as RNAlater ®, PAXgene Tissue Systems or Allprotect ® Tissue Reagent, RNA demonstrated high-quality RNA stabilization and protection in the context of long-term tissue storage and archival . Designed for room temperature use, RNAssist is compatible with routine paraffin-embedding procedure, pathology staining – (H&E, immunohistochemistry (IHC) , in situ hybridization (IS) – and molecular analysis : RT-PCR, WB, next-geneneration sequencing, …
