THOROLD, ON, July 18 /PRNewswire/ - Norgen Biotek Corp., an innovative
Canadian biotechnology company focusing primarily on advancing powerful
tools for RNA, DNA and protein purifications, today announced the expansion
of its product offerings by launching four new kits geared towards the
isolation of RNA and DNA from plants and fungi for research and diagnostic
applications. In response to customer demands and emerging needs Norgen
developed this new line of kits which are all available in spin-column
formats as well as in 96-well plate formats for high throughput
applications. The new kits include:
1- The Plant/Fungi RNA Purification Kit:
2- The Plant/Fungi DNA Isolation Kit:
These kits provide rapid methods for the isolation and purification of total RNA and genomic DNA respectively from a wide range of plant and filamentous fungal species. The Plant/Fungi RNA Purification Kit isolates all sizes of RNA, from large mRNA and ribosomal RNA down to microRNA. The purified RNA is of the highest integrity, and can be used in a number of downstream applications including Real-Time PCR, reverse transcription PCR, Northern blotting, RNase protection and primer extension, and expression array assays. With the Plant/Fungi DNA Isolation Kit total DNA is isolated including genomic DNA, mitochondrial DNA and chloroplast DNA. The purified DNA can be used in a number of downstream applications including Real-Time PCR, Southern blotting and sequencing.
3- The Plant RNA/DNA Purification Kit:
This novel kit enables scientists to isolate total RNA, including microRNA, and genomic DNA simultaneously from a single plant sample. This approach cuts down on the number of extractions during the screening for plant pathogens.
4- The Direct Fungal DNA Isolation Kit:
This kit allows for the rapid isolation and purification of genomic DNA
from the fungi found on the surface of symptomatic plant samples. A major
benefit of this k
