Our fast and simple method to extract RNA, DNA and protein to facilitate detection of SARS-CoV-2 is published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology!

Our paper on a fast, accessible, affordable, and easy to perform method for the isolation of RNA, DNA, and proteins from cells and viruses is out in JCM! Check it out here: https://jcm.asm.org/content/early/2020/12/04/JCM.02403-20. We call our method "PEARL" for Precipitation Enhanced Analyte RecoverY. PEARL uses common laboratory reagents and does not require specialized instrumentation. PEARL can be used to facilitate the detection of SARS-CoV-2 at a fraction of the cost of commercially available kits. Congratulations to Carlos and Michael, the co-first authors of this wonderful paper!
