Meridian Bioscience Air-Dryable RT-qPCR Mix

Meridian has launched its Air-Dryable RT-qPCR mix, a specialized master mix designed for air drying instead of lyophilization. The ready-to-use mix has ambient temperature stability and removes the need for cold chain shipping and storage, the company said. Its one-tube format chemistry contains all the reagents necessary for RT-qPCR, including magnesium, dNTP, and reverse transcriptase.

The mix is designed to simplify development, manufacturing, and storage of molecular tests, along with delivering fast detection of RNA targets, making the mix ideal for COVID-19 testing, the firm said. Meridian added that the mix has high performance in singleplex and multiplex reactions after rehydration.
