BANGALORE, INDIA, Dec 15, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - Azooka Labs, a leading safe fluorophore company with specialization in Molecular Biology products, reveals its first range of novel COVID-19 diagnostics products. RNA Wrapr is a molecular transport medium for COVID-19 sample collection, developed as part of the COVID-19 response team from Indian Institute of Science.


Molecular Transport Media that inactivates the Coronavirus immediately. Not only that! Azooka's RNA Wrapr does not require dry ice for storage and can be processed until a week. A storage medium for COVID-19 that is safe, easy to use and affordable. (RNA Wrapr comes in 3ml or 10ml vials with Fluccoluated Nylon Nasal Swabs. Price starts at INR 99 per vial.)


RNA Wrapr inactivates the virus immediately only preserving DNA/RNA content required for RT-PCR tests.
