Abstract: Nucleic acid detection assays in lyophilized (freezedried) format provide many advantages over conventional wet format in terms of higher stability and lower shipping costs. Conventional formulations of reverse transcriptases (RTs) used for RT-PCR contain up to 50% of glycerol, which serves as a cryoprotectant and stabilizes enzymes for extended periods of time. However, even at such minute concentrations as 0.5%, glycerol can interfere with the lyophilization process. Therefore, most of the conventional enzyme preparations are incompatible with lyophilization. Summary: Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed lyophilization-ready (lyoready) enzyme formulations for Invitrogen™ SuperScript™ IV (SSIV) and SuperScript III (SSIII) RTs that meet high-performance requirements of RT-PCR-based assays. The new lyo-ready RTs are formulated with less than 0.01% of glycerol and retain all inherent characteristics of enzyme preparations with glycerol, thus providing a powerful tool for development of sensitive and reproducible RT-PCR assays in dry formats.References: We would like to thank Eglė Merkienė, Jurgita Rubekina, Dovilė Litvinavičiūtė.
