Dried Reagent Technology

In biomedical research and even some clinical diagnostics assays many of the key reagents used are biological molecules with the same propensity to degrade with handling and storage. When designing a robust assay, it is important that the assay read out is attributable to the sample and test condition, rather than inconsistencies in the reagents used. One approach to increase the stability of biomolecules is to remove the water. A common approach is called lyophilization. We’ve developed a proprietary method to dry reagents that does not involve the process of lyophilization. We call this technology DURA Innovations.
