Protect what’s precious

RNase Inhibitor exhibits high affinity, non-competitive binding of RNases A, B, and C at a 1:1 ratio, enabling high-quality cDNA synthesis from low-quality RNA samples. The absence of two cysteines present in human and porcine RNase inhibitors make this murine version highly suitable for low-DTT applications.

  • Prevent RNA degradation in RT-qPCR, single cell, and single nuclei sequencing workflows at temperatures up to 55°C
  • Reduce material costs with a drop-in solution that delivers equivalent performance at a differentiated price-point
  • Improve performance in low-DTT settings with a murine RNase inhibitor that better resists oxidation
  • Custom formats, including high concentration, support lyophilization applications
  • Highly stringent enzyme manufacturing ensures quality performance across lots



StellarScript HT+ Reverse Transcriptase

Highly thermostable and inhibitor-tolerant for improved performance in RT-PCR and RT-qPCR applications


Key Performance Data

Safeguard RNA assay performance

Ribonucleases (RNases) are ubiquitous and can have significant and detrimental impacts on assay performance and sensitivity. Incorporating an RNase inhibitor to prevent RNA degradation ensures reliability and accuracy of experimental results – particularly for studies and assays focused on pathogen detection, gene expression, RNA stability, and other RNA-dependent processes.
