Resource:Ambion Inc.

Name: Resource:Ambion Inc.
Description: Ambion is a technology leader and driving force in the changing dynamics of the life science marketplace for over 25 years. Ambion is now a center of excellence within the Applied Biosystems consumables business. The Ambion brand encompasses a complete range of products for researchers whose work involves RNA. These include products for the isolation, detection, quantification, amplification, and characterization of RNA.

The Ambion brand encompasses a complete range of products for researchers whose work involves RNA. These include products for isolation, detection, quantification, amplification, and characterization of RNA. RNA can be a difficult molecule to work with. It is readily degraded by RNases that are found in a variety of environmental sources, including fingerprints. While many procedures will tolerate small amounts of RNases, the most critical procedures require virtually nuclease-free conditions. This means that Ambion had to develop a variety of specialized manufacturing and quality control procedures to insure the proper and reliable functioning of its products. Early in its history, Ambion set a goal of offering the highest quality and purity enzymes and reagents. Ambion enzymes are purified to much higher levels than normally occurs within the industry. Ambion kits are designed to work well not only under perfect conditions, but also when there is inadvertent introduction of partially degraded RNA by investigators, RNase contamination, or other less-than-ideal conditions. This is referred to as "building robustness" into the products and continues to be a primary focus of product development today. Sponsors: Ambion is owned by Applied Biosystems.
