Oragene•RNA measures variability in gene expression for VITO

Posted by Shauna White on Mon, Feb 14, 2011 @ 13:02 PM

This morning, DNA Genotek announced an exciting piece of news. Our Oragene•RNA kit has been selected by VITO (Flemish Institute for Technological Research), for a series of biomonitoring research projects. Human biomonitoring campaigns study the impact of environmental stressors (pollutants, irradiation, psychological stress, etc.) on health and well-being by measuring a suite of biomarkers. Gene expression has proven to be useful to identify molecular changes in blood that relate to environmental stress. VITO will explore the value of saliva gene expression in biomonitoring and investigate the potential to develop new saliva biomarkers.

The Oragene•RNA Kit is the only all-in-one system for the collection, stabilization and transportation of high quality mRNA from saliva. It is designed for human mRNA expression profiling. VITO has chosen Oragene•RNA for the following proof-of principle projects:
