RNAses are a major concern for everyone working with messenger RNA, since minor contamination with RNAse can quickly compromise the mRNA in your sample or application. When ordering mRNA from RiboPro, you can be sure that the mRNA solution itself and all buffers, tubes and other materials are completely RNAse-free. However, adding the mRNA to 3rd party solutions, buffers or other materials carries a substantial risk of introducing RNAse contamination.

To offer scientist more control of those variables in their experiments and to allow them to eliminate sources of RNAse, RiboPro is launching a new RNAse-testing service. Customers can send small volumes of the suspected source of contamination to RiboPro and within 24h after receipt of the sample will receive a comprehensible outcome on the level or absence of RNAse contamination.

The product page will launch in 2 weeks, until then please request this service via our contact page.

To that end, RiboPro is developing a kit of RNAse-free solutions, swabs, tips and pre-paid shipping envelops allowing customers to send samples quickly, hassle-free and from any place, at any time.

For customers requiring a even shorter turn-around time, RiboPro is developing a RNAse-detection kit compatible with a wide range of pH, temperatures and background fluorescence. Following the protocol, customers can test their own samples on their plate reader after a 2 hours to overnight incubation step with longer incubations leading to a higher sensitivity.
