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

Temperature-driven, single-tube extractions of total RNA from mammalian cells, tissues, insects, bacteria and virus
This powerful, broad-specificity approach is ideal for gene expression from a very small number of cells, such as exosomes or single cells, without the need for harsh chemicals or further purification.
Suitable for extracting DNA from bacteria (Gram-positive and Gram-negative), protozoa, archaea, colonies and liquid cultures, biofilm and mucosal samples, swabs, and metagenomic DNA including soil, stool and water
Produces single-stranded DNA suitable for PCR, qPCR, targeted sequencing (amplicon sequencing) from metagenomic samples, 16S rDNA sequencing
Each kit contains prepGEM, lysozyme, GREEN+ buffer, enhancer and wash
