A new approach for the collection and analysis of samples in real-time

On-demand RNA Extraction Webinar
Featuring Dr. Christina Preston and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI)

Watch Now

Christina Preston, research specialist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), discusses the Environmental Sample Processor (ESP), an ecogenomic sensor that automates sample collection, handling, and analysis in remote field settings. Dr. Preston describes real-time data collection and analysis in aquatic environments; however, the processes can be applied to a wide range of organisms and environmental settings. She provides a solid overview of these processes, including the benefits of RNAGEM to quickly extract and stabilize RNA suitable for downstream sequencing or analysis.

Learn about:

  • An enzymatic approach to extracting and stabilizing RNA
  • Sample collection, preparation, and analysis under challenging environmental conditions
  • Introduction to a field-tested, automated approach for complex laboratory analyses in real-time
