Harvard University laboratory publishes paper in Science citing use of Biomatrica’s RNAstable in study to elucidate Ebola virus origin and transmission during the 2014 outbreak

A paper published in Science by researchers at the Sabeti Lab at Harvard University cites the use of Biomatrica’s RNAstable® reagent in stabilising and transporting RNA from inactivated Ebola virus from Africa to Harvard University.



Stabilize and store RNA at Ambient Temperatures

  • Preserves RNA at ambient temperatures without degradation
  • Eliminates the need to store RNA in freezers or to ship on dry ice
  • Concentrates RNA more effectively than other methods
  • Compatible with most downstream applications

RNAstable® and RNAstable® LD allows you to preserve and ship your total RNA, mRNA, and miRNA for up to 12 years at ambient temperatures*. They provide a cost-effective, eco-friendly solution to freezer crawl and lab space management. Moreover, they elimnate sample loss due to freeze/thaw cycles. When you are ready to use your RNA samples, you can fully recover them in minutes without any additional purification steps.

RNAstable is available in two convenient formats:

  • RNAstable: provided pre-dried in 1.5 ml microfuge tubes and 96-well plates to which hydrated RNA can be added.
  • RNAstable LD: a liquid reagent which can be added directly to RNA samples in your own tubes, multi-well plates, or other containers.
