RNA Stabilization Tube

RNA Stabilization Tubes eliminate the need for cryogenic infrastructure and costly transportation of RNA on dry ice. A proprietary formulation preserves RNA at ambient temperature for ~3 years under optimal conditions to simplify your sample storage, shipping, and handling while reducing your overall shipping costs by up to 80%. The tubes provide thermal stability for RNA samples from -80°C to 76°C during transportation. RNA is protected against degradation immediately upon addition to the tubes, and the brief drying process helps prevent damage from RNA hydrolysis and oxidation.
