Ambion of Austin, Texas, introduces RNAlater™, a tissue storage reagent that protects cellular RNA from degradation before RNA isolation and eliminates the need to freeze samples immediately in liquid nitrogen for later processing. The aqueous reagent does not affect the integrity of the stored RNA and is compatible with many tissues and with all RNA protocols tested. RNAlater is available in 100 ml and 500 ml sizes.
