Porvair Sciences: Improved Viral RNA Extraction from Nasal and Throat Swab Samples

Hits:172   Date: 4/28/2022
The Chromatrap® Homogeniser Spin Column from Porvair Sciences maximises the yield and quality of viral RNA extracted from nasal and throat swab samples.

The easy-to-use spin column offers a fast and efficient ‘one-stop’ alternative to using traditional syringe and needle homogenisation techniques. Employing a novel dual frit extraction design the Chromatrap® Homogeniser Spin Column reduces lysate viscosity and captures insoluble debris by centrifugation. The homogenised lysate sample is then ready for RNA extraction.
Employed as a single-use consumable - the Chromatrap® Homogeniser Spin Column eliminates the possibility of sample cross contamination.


Fully compatible with all manual RNA extraction kits - the Chromatrap® Homogeniser Spin Column provides an ideal sample preparation solution for RNA miniprep and midiprep.
