CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 11, 2015--
Bioline, The PCR Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meridian
Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIVO), is proud to announce the worldwide
release of the latest five kits in the high performance ISOLATE II
nucleic acid purification range – ISOLATE II miRNA, Plant miRNA,
Biofluids RNA, RNA/DNA/Protein, and FFPE RNA/DNA Kits.
Based on the latest developments in silica membrane spin column
technology and optimized buffer chemistry, with simple bind-wash-elute
steps; the new Bioline ISOLATE II Purification Kits are designed for
rapid, phenol-free isolation of highest quality nucleic acids, including
miRNA, even from samples that are difficult to process. By using ISOLATE
II Kits, researchers can expect superior yields, higher purity and
integrity when compared to the previous generation of purification kits,
as well as safe and convenient handling without the use of toxic
All five kits offer significantly improved and unbiased recovery of
small RNA molecules including miRNA and siRNA, to give highly accurate
results. In contrast, widely used phenol-chloroform based methods
involve laborious separation and precipitation steps, and can introduce
significant bias in small RNA recovery. The new kits also efficiently
purify high quality large RNA species such as mRNA.
Marco Calzavara, President of Bioline commented, “With the additional
five kits to the ISOLATE II nucleic acid purification range, researchers
can achieve the purity and yield necessary for unbiased cDNA synthesis,
high performance real-time RT-PCR and highly accurate RNA sequencing.
This makes ISOLATE II the perfect starting point for a wide array of
downstream applications including miRNA expression profiling and
quantification, biomarker discovery, viral screening, pathogen
detection, and agribiotech research.”
Richard L. Eberly, President of Meridian Life Science, Inc., stated, “We
are delighted to release the new line of ISOLATE II Kits for miRNA and
RNA purification, to build on the rapidly expanding portfolio of highly
specialized molecular biology reagents from Bioline. We are committed to
our life science customers and to bringing innovation and quality
products; such as the line of new ISOLATE II Purification Kits to the
research laboratory, clinical diagnostic laboratories and biotechnology
The five new ISOLATE II miRNA and RNA Purification Kits are available
now for a wide range of starting samples and tissue types.
