is a research and development led company with expertise in the development and commercialization of a wide range of fast and convenient sample preparation technologies. Based at Sci-tech Daresbury, where we have fully equipped laboratory facilities, the Group has already developed a number of patented compounds and technologies that have been enthusiastically received in the commercial marketplace via our licensing partners.
Arcis reagents are an ultra-fast sample preparation system for the preparation of DNA and RNA, with the added benefit of preserving and protecting nucleic acids for up to 90 days (DNA) without temperature control and without any additional processing. The kits have been demonstrated effectively on whole blood, blood plasma, cell cultures, sputum and many other sample types. The nucleic acids are suitable for direct use in PCR, qPCR and RT-qPCR reactions using standard and fast cycling protocols.
