Guanidine thiocyanateStrong sequestering and denaturation reagent guanidine thiocyanate is also known as guanidine isothiocyanate, guandinium cyanate, guandine thiocyanate, guanidinium rhodanide, thiocyanic acid with guanidine and guanidine, monothiocyanate , with an acronym of GITC. It is the essential reagent for nucleic acids sample preparation in molecular diagnostics and in life science field.

This compound is a strong chaotropic agent and is commonly used as a protein denaturant in sample preparation protocols for extraction of DNA, extraction of RNA and similar applications. Besides being a protein denaturant the guanidine thiocyanate acts as a nucleic acids protector (due to denaturation of nucleases), during extraction and purification protocols and during storage.

In case of storage and sample preparation of viruses the guanidine thiocyanate prevents RNA virus degradation by denaturing RNAse and DNAse enzymes and at the same time is making virus deactivated by removing its protein coats, and thus making samples safer to work.

As such, the guanidine thiocyanate is an essential reagent for COVID-19 molecular diagnostics test manufacturing. It is used for the stabilization and deactivation in viral collection part of the kits, as well as for protein denaturation during the sample preparation of the viral RNA.

Due to the increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic, this material becomes hard to source.
