LyoBeads are ready-to-use, freeze-dried master mixes in shape of a small ball or spheres.
LyoBeads contain: DNA polymerase(s), reaction buffer, dNTPs and primers and probes. They are rehydrated within seconds in any aqueous solutions, which makes reaction setup very simple. Only a biological sample has to be added.
Storage: LyoBeads are shipped and stored simply at room-temperature. This provides a more cost efficient and ecological distribution compared to other master mixes.
LyoBeads can be pre-dispensed in PCR-strips, PCR-plates, cartridges etc.
All necessary components for PCR are already included in one LyoBead: an engineered DNA polymerase, an optimized reaction buffer and ultrapure dNTPs. Only primers and probes need to be added. A hot-start formulation of the included DNA polymerase prevents false amplification during the reaction set-up.
