RNA Sampling and RNA Extracting cards are of same formula, only formatted differently for each particular application. Sampling cards emphasize on the stabilizing RNA at room temperature for a period of time and would endure transportation, so are more securely packaged; while Extracting cards facilitate the easy and quick RNA extraction, so are formatted for higher throughput. There are two formats for each type of card: standard and ReadyPunched Card.
RNASound™ RNA Sampling Cards are filter papers impregnated with proprietary lysis buffer for:
- Immediate inactivating and thus safe handling of infectious agents;
- Room temperature RNA sample collection, storage and transportation;
- 10 minutes easy RNA recovery, ready for RT-PCR, no inhibition;
- ReadyPunched™ Cards have standard 3mm discs that were punched out from impregnated filter paper and embedded on card, eliminate the troubles of card punching at final RNA recovery stage
