Product News: Improved viral RNA extraction from nasal and throat swab samples

Easy-to-use spin column offers an efficient alternative to traditional syringe homogenization techniques

24 Jun 2022


The Chromatrap® Homogeniser Spin Column from Porvair Sciences maximizes 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 homogenization techniques.

Employing a novel dual frit extraction design the Chromatrap® Homogeniser Spin Column reduces lysate viscosity and captures insoluble debris by centrifugation. The homogenized 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.
