Molecular Biology at a glance
In this article we want to share with you a summary of our broad portfolio for Molecular Biology, including blog posts and useful tips.
Collect and transport your samples with sample collection devices (for saliva, blood, feces, etc. as well as swab and lysis tubes). You can find more information in our blog post ‘Sample Collection and Preservation – Critical Starting Points in Your Research!‘
Also, you can preserve your precious samples at room temperature during weeks/years and, at the same time, completely inactivate infectious agents (bacteria, fungi, parasites & viruses such us SARS-CoV-2). More info here (Zymo Research & Norgen Biotek).
Most of these products are now CE-IVD certified. Ask us if you want to know more!
Nucleic Acid Extraction
Need to isolate DNA, RNA or both? We have extraction kits for any kind of sample (e.g. blood, urine, saliva, soil, tissue, cells, plants, insects, etc.), including for ultra-low input samples, single cells, FFPE tissues or other challenging samples.
Here you’ll find more info on DNA purification & RNA purification, and contact us if you need a kit compatible with Automated Platforms (e.g. TECAN, Hamilton, KingFisher, Qiacube, etc.)
Find more about useful tips for proper handling and quantification of DNA and RNA on our blog.
Endpoint PCR, quantitative qPCR, RT-PCR… you name it! We have solutions for all your needs, as well as cDNA synthesis and reverse transcription kits.

Specific solutions for SARS-COV-2 detection
COVID-19 detection based on the assays and protocols developed by the CDC. The kit includes ready-to-use 2X One-Step RT-PCR Master Mix and a positive control (2019-nCoV RT-PCR Positive Control) which contains 2 nCoV nucleocapsid target gene RNA (N1,N2) and RNase P (internal control). CE-IVD marked alternatives available.
Extraction-free assays from sputum, saliva and stool
The kit targets 3 different regions of the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid (N) gene and a host-specific target region (human RNase P gene). It contains a ready-to-use master mix, a positive control (viral and human RNA), is compatible with high-throughput workflows and CE-IVD certified.
The kit targets a region of the viral nucleocapsid (N) gene and a host-specific target region (human RNase P gene). It includes CV Positive Control and a no-template control. Compatible with multiple Real-Time PCR instruments capable of detecting HEX/VIC and Quasar 670/Cy5 fluorophores. CE-IVD certified.
