About Us

We develop patented reagents to improve molecular tests of tissues and pathogens while supporting industry standard pathology protocols and high throughput lab systems.   

“Fully inactivating SARS-CoV-2 virus and other pathogens before transporting them to labs, while also making the testing more accurate and the handling of the media safer, is a tremendous innovation in specimen collection.”

ABOUT TRUCKEE APPLIED GENOMICS

Truckee Applied Genomics, LLC (TAG) is based in Reno Nevada and develops and manufactures patented reagents to improve molecular tests of tissues and pathogens. TAG-1™ is a non-toxic Class 1 General Reagent pursuant to 21 CFR 864.4010, used as a non-crosslinking direct replacement to formalin for clinical and research tissue pathology. TAG-NGPM+™ is a virus inactivating transport media designed to preserve viral RNA fragments and proteins, requires no cold chain, prevent bacterial overgrowth and it contains no guanidinium salts. TAG-NGPM™ is a virus culturing media for research use including better monitoring new variants of SARS-CoV-2 with next generation sequencing.
