Is the Biomeme M1 Sample Prep Compatible with RNALater or Zymo DNA/RNA Shield?

No. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend use of RNAlater or Zymo DNA/RNA Shield for use with our Sample Prep.

It has been found that the use of RNALater or Zymos RNA/DNA shield may lead to reduced sensitivity when used with Biomeme's M1 RNA Sample Prep for certain sample types. It is suggested that small trial extractions be done when combining these reagents to ensure maximum assay performance.
