Hello all,
I am considering purchasing a freezing unit through Thermo that can be used with either isopentane of a new solution, HFE-7000 that is sold with the unit.  I need to be able to have frozen samples that allow high quality DNA and RNA extracted.  Does anyone have any experience with this fluid and molecular analytes?
Thanks very much,
