Lyo-Ready 1-Step RT-qPCR Virus Mix

Molecular diagnostic tests are progressively moving towards lyophilized. There are several advantages for this, including room temperature shipping and storage, extended shelf-life, and increased flexibility in sample volume. In order to be compatible with drying, however, enzyme preparations must be glycerol-free and include specialized excipients that preserve the mixture as it is exposed to freezing, vacuum, and dehydration. An ideal lyophilization formulation, for example, should stabilize an enzyme in a freeze-dried format and allow very fast rehydration and reactivation of the enzyme preparations, without impacting its performance post rehydration.
