Ultra Diagnostic / Reagent Grade
Product Code: GTHI-5221 | Previously: GT5221
Intended For Use In Commercial Manufacturing, Diagnostic And Laboratory Applications
Guanidine Thiocyanate is a chaotropic agent. As one of the strongest protein denaturants, it inactivates nucleases more than twice as fast as Guanidine Hydrochloride. Guanidine Thiocyanate is preferred for the purification of RNA because it dissociates the RNA into its nucleic acids and protein forms. Higher molarity solutions of Guanidine Thiocyanate irreversibly inactivate RNase. Guanidine Thiocyanate causes proteins to dissolve readily, thus disintegrating cellular structures.
