Let Zymo handle from the field to your lab!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Bioinformatics

"The assay is very robust and removes a lot of the worry out of RNA collection from field samples, including storage temperature and RNA degradation from RNAse. I used Zymo's other kits to collect RNA for transcriptomics, and like those kits these assays do not disappoint. "

Worked great, and can't beat the price!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:High-throughput SARS-CoV-2 RNA Extraction

"We used this product for SARS-COV-2 RNA extraction on a 96 well scale. The method is quite simple to follow, and the resulting RNA had great purity. Zymo is great to work with because their customer support team is very responsive and caring. I was surprised at the cost of the product as well - it easily fit into my lab's budget and saved me a ton of time. "
