Norgen Biotek Corp. Launches the All-in-One Purification Kit for 4-in-1 Purification of RNA, microRNA, DNA and Proteins from a Single Sample

    THOROLD, ON, Jan. 11 /CNW/ - Norgen Biotek Corp., an innovative Canadian
biotechnology company focusing primarily on advancing powerful tools for
nucleic acid and protein purification, today announced the expansion of its
RNA product offerings by launching a powerful new tool for isolating RNA,
microRNA, DNA, and proteins (the All-in-One Purification Kit) sequentially
from a single sample. In addition, Norgen is also introducing their new Total
RNA Purification 96-Well Kit for high throughput total RNA purification with
the same benefits and features as our highly successful total RNA kit based on
spin columns.
    The novel All-in-One Purification Kit will enable scientists to isolate
total RNA including microRNA, genomic DNA and total proteins sequentially from
a single sample using one column, without the use of phenol/chloroform or
acetone. A microRNA Enrichment Column is also provided for optional separate
purification and enrichment of microRNA from the total RNA fraction. The
simple, streamlined procedure will allow for the efficient isolation of the
four macromolecules in less than 20 minutes with scientists no longer needing
to divide their initial sample or lysate, thus resulting in better
consistency. The purified macromolecules are well suited for many downstream
applications including PCR amplifications, RT-PCR and Real-Time PCR, as well
as Southern blots, Northern blots, Western blots, and Dot blots, cDNA
synthesis, microarrays and mass spectrometry.
    The All-in-One Purification Kit is a valuable new tool for both academic
and medical researchers. It serves as the 4-in-1 solution for those biologists
who are interested in the interactions of multiple disciplines including RNA
interference, genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, systems biology and
proteomics. This kit is particularly useful for the characterization of
precious samples such as needle biopsies and cell line foci, as well as for
mutant analysis, RNA interference studies, cell differentiation studies and
pathogen detection.
    "Our new 4-in-1 kit represents an exciting addition to our line of high
quality novel products. I am confident that our genomics and proteomics
customers will find this kit highly enabling. Why isolate only a single
macromolecule when you can get all three at the same time? Our mission is to
continue to bring to market innovative products for researchers in the fields
of systems biology." said Dr. Haj-Ahmad, President & CEO of Norgen Biotek.
