MO BIO Laboratories, Inc. Launches LifeGuard(TM) Soil Preservation Solution
Press release date: October 7, 2009
LifeGuard Soil Preservation Solution is the first product optimized specifically to protect microbial RNA in soil and sediment samples. Virtually all research on environmental samples involves sample collection in locations that are far from a laboratory. Without special handling, the RNA levels in these samples will be altered during transport resulting in unreliable data. LifeGuard Solution puts microbes into stasis immediately upon contact and keeps the sample stable at ambient temperature during transport, resulting in reliable data and enabling the analysis of microbial interactions via RNA.
LifeGuard Soil Preservation Solution is available now. For more information visit the MO BIO website (www.mobio.com) or call 800-606-6246 to order.
MO BIO Laboratories, Inc. (www.mobio.com) has developed innovative tools for researchers in Molecular Biology since 1993. A global leader in solutions for soil, water and microbial nucleic acid purification, MO BIO's Power® kits contain patented Inhibitor Removal Technology® for removal of PCR inhibiting substances during the nucleic acid purification procedure. For samples that do not require inhibitor removal, MO BIO's UltraClean® line includes optimized products for DNA and RNA isolation from a variety of sample types. Also for clinical samples, the BiOstic(TM) kits provide solutions for higher yields and purity of nucleic acids. At MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., our focus is quality products that work, save time and function for all sample types, not just the easy ones. It is MO BIO's aim to make researchers' working lives more productive and efficient, creating time to focus on what is critical, not just in work, but in life.
