Shoreline Biome receives patent for lysis method

Shoreline Biome was recently awarded a patent for the “Combined Lysis Protocol for Comprehensive Cell Lysis.” The patent outlines the method and materials for the lysis of bacteria present in microbiomes as well as bacterial cell isolates.

This method, used in the Shoreline Biome Rapid Prep Kits and in the front end of the Shoreline Complete kits, provides researchers with a set of reagents to quickly, comprehensively, and uniformly lyse bacteria.
