Meridian Launches New Range of Lyo-Ready PCR Mixes
Lyo-Ready One-Step RT-qPCR and Lyo-Ready One-Step Viral RT-qPCR are glycerol-free formulations that contain optimized lyophilization excipients, which have been tested with a range of lyophilization protocols and formats, including cakes and beads. Their high performance in multiplex reactions in combination with very fast rehydration times, make them ideally suited for automated high-throughput platforms. Lyo-Ready One-Step Viral RT-qPCR has been specifically developed for amplification of RNA viruses with a high secondary structure.
Molecular diagnostic tests are progressively moving towards a lyophilized format in order to avoid the need for a cool chain, leading to considerable cost savings during shipment and storage. However, there are significant technical challenges in developing an RT-qPCR lyophilization-compatible mix that has the same highly reproducible performance as a ‘wet’ formulation. Building on its expertise in the field of PCR, the life science division of
