New: DNAstorm & RNAstorm FFPE Extraction Kits

New: DNAstorm & RNAstorm FFPE Extraction Kits

Mayflower Bioscience has entered into a distribution agreement with Cell Data Sciences market its DNAstorm™ and RNAstorm™ FFPE Extraction Kits

Extraction of DNA and RNA from formalin-fixed tissue samples is challenging using current methods which often results in low quality, poor yields and performance in downstream applications. DNAstorm and RNAstorm Extraction Kits enhance the removal of formaldehyde-induced damage and provide nucleic acid with higher yield and quality, better integrity, and greater amplifiability.

The proprietary CAT5™ technology* allows for isolation of nucleic acid under mild conditions, avoiding the use of damaging conditions and chemicals. The kits provide all necessary reagents for extraction of total DNA or RNA from FFPE tissue samples in a simple spin-column format.

*CAT5™ technology builds on research initiated at Stanford University and published in Nature Chemistry in 2015 (S. Karmakar et al, Organocatalytic Reversal of Formaldehyde Adducts of RNA and DNA Bases, Nature Chemistry 2015, 7:752-758.)
