PrimeStore MTM should not be used with the Hologic Panther System due to a disinfecting step involving bleach that is specific to that platform. PrimeStore MTM, like most lysis buffers and nucleic acid purification reagents, contains Guanidine. Bleach and guanidine create cyanide gas which is why most molecular lab protocols use ethanol based decontamination and cleaning solutions rather than bleach. To take advantage of the microbial inactivation and RNA stabilization qualities of PrimeStore MTM, users can safely test on a wide variety of high throughput platforms from Roche, Thermo Fisher, Abbott, Siemens, Luminex, BioRad, PSS, Promega, and BioMerieux, as well as the Cepheid GeneXpert point of care platform.
