Earlier in this thread a request was made to identify the suppliers
of Trizol reagent and other posters correctly identified this as
Gibco/BRL. I added a comment to the effect that I had used an
equivalent reagent, RNA Stat-60 from Tel-Test Inc. in Texas
but had been given the impression that the company no longer sold
this. I just wanted to let you know that the company does
still supply this reagent. I have never done a side-by-side
comparison but RNA Stat works for me whilst the lab down the
hall happily uses Trizol.
Tel Test Inc. 1-800-631-0600
(and Gibco/BRL are 1-800-828-6686)
Whilst searching for the telephone number I was also reminded of an
old bionet post which provided the recipe for such an extraction
reagent which the authors (Winoto, Diaz and Penuel) called
RNASEALL. Unfortunately I don't have the original post but I
believe it was about 2 years ago. I still have a printout
somewhere and can post it if required.
