FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(GRAND RAPIDS, MICH)—August 15, 2016— As a result of their ongoing product development and process optimization efforts, Empirical Bioscience has approved the enhanced labeling of their Taq Master Mix line including, their FlashTaq HotStart Master Mix and rEVAlution qPCR Master Mix products for storage and use at room temperature (15° to 25°C) for up to 60 days and for extended refrigeration storage at 4°C for up to 180 days.

The new capabilities mark a significant advancement in the efficiency and flexibility of Empirical Bioscience’s Master Mix line. For example, the new storage and use conditions allow for easier handling, easier reaction set up and more accessible, ongoing laboratory use.

Since Empirical Bioscience Master Mix products don’t need to be frozen, users don’t have to deal with the reduced activity and progressive degradation of performance that typically occurs with the repeated freezing and thawing of other similar products. Empirical Bioscience found that when they used and stored their optimized Master Mix products under these conditions there was no detectable loss of function.

In fact, the robust and highly-active nature of the Master Mix products contributes to their overall ease of use. Users may set up multiple reactions with ease and confidence. The extended labeling capabilities of the products also offer many advantages in high volume, automated labs. They benefit from the room temperature handling instructions, but also from having the Master Mix supplied in larger volumes for direct use with their testing equipment. It also offers a streamlined shipping and receiving process since it does not require dry ice in transit or immediate freezer storage upon receipt.

“The need for performance, efficiency and consistency is inherent in all operations, this is true even in our molecular biology community,” said Des O’Farrell, President of Empirical Bioscience. “The fact that they can use our Master Mixes instantly and more easily, offers significant time-saving advantages to the overall process. The products are very robust and are very tolerant and easier to use in research and teaching environments. And, they allow Empirical Bioscience to better service the growing commercial testing and biotechnology markets,” he added.

Empirical Bioscience produces high-grade PCR reagents and enzymes in its ISO 13485 certified facility in Grand Rapids, MI, USA and is a Registered Small Business Company.

GEN NEWS: New Products – cDNA Synthesis Kit

The RTScript™ is a cDNA Synthesis Kit that allows users to produce robust cDNA yields in as little as 30 minutes. This kit is a modified version of M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase with RNase H activity deactivated and increased thermal stability. These characteristics render it sensitive, specific, and capable of synthesizing highly structured and long cDNA fragments. The RTscript cDNA Synthesis Kit has also been optimized to offer high reproducibility and efficiency for a broad range of primers and templates. The kit contains all the reagents necessary for first strand cDNA synthesis including RNase-free water, ultrapure dNTPs, oligo (dT) primers, random hexamers, control RNA, and RNase inhibitor.

LAB BULLETIN: Empirical Bioscience’s TAQ DNA Polymerase Labeling Extended to Include Long Term Refrigeration and Room Temperature Storage

This product improvement is the result of ongoing optimization work at Empirical Bioscience’s new manufacturing facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Tests conducted by the company show that their TAQ DNA Polymerase, a recombinant Taq, exhibits no detectable loss of function when stored and used under these conditions.

What’s more, the new storage and usage conditions also allow for easier and more accessible use in laboratories. There is no thaw time required and no need to access deep freeze facilities which are often remote from the testing site. These new capabilities also make the product more compatible with high volume, automated test facilities which benefit from having the enzyme and other reagents supplied in larger volumes for direct use with automated testing equipment.

“Our TAQ DNA Polymerase has been extremely well received by the molecular biology community since it was introduced,” said Des O’Farrell, President of Empirical Bioscience. “Now that they can use it instantly and more easily, they will appreciate it even more. It also allows Empirical Bioscience to service the growing commercial testing and biotechnology markets better,” he added.
