Streck will sponsor an industry & science showcase presented by the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research at American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Microbe 2017 in New Orleans.
Streck’s cell stabilization products include Cell-Free DNA Urine Preserve, a formaldehyde-free liquid reagent that stabilizes cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in urine; Cyto-Chex BCT, a blood collection tube for the preservation of whole blood specimens for immunophenotyping by flow cytometry; Cell-Free DNA BCT®, a direct-draw blood collection tube which stabilizes nucleated blood cells and prevents the release of genomic DNA, allowing isolation of high-quality cell-free DNA for a wide range of downstream applications commonly used in clinical research studies, drug discovery and diagnostic assay development; and Cell-Free RNA BCT®, a blood collection tube with a patented preservative which stabilizes circulating RNA in plasma and prevents the release of non-target background RNA from blood cells during sample processing and storage.
Streck’s Molecular Products division is focused on the generation of rapid diagnostic tools that impact healthcare decisions. Streck’s molecular product line includes the ARM-D® Kits for the detection of antibiotic resistance genes by multiplex real-time PCR and the soon-to-launch rapid real-time PCR instrument, the Zulu RT™, capable of 40 cycle reactions in 20 minutes or less. In addition, Streck is developing a library of diagnostics tools that will soon be available in Singapore, Malaysia and the rest of the world.
“Ngaio Diagnostics is very happy to be partnering with Streck, Inc., a well-respected and recognized provider of innovative products, to market and support its range of cell stabilization and molecular products in New Zealand,” said Rob McKenzie, Managing Director at Ngaio Diagnostics.
