The code section

if @c between 48 and 57 or @c between 65 and 90 or @c between 97 and 122

Is determining which characters to keep.  If you want spaces, dashes, etc. included then just add those ASCII values.

if @c between 48 and 57 or @c between 65 and 90 or @c between 97 and 122 or @c IN (32, 45)

Hello,

Try this query

Declare @KeepValues as varchar(50),@Str varchar(100)

 SET @Str = 'Test-Master," ®+ BAP Reagent'

    Set @KeepValues = '%[^-A-Z ]%'
    While PatIndex(@KeepValues, @Str) > 0
    Set @Str = Stuff(@Str, PatIndex(@KeepValues, @Str), 1, '')

	SELECT @Str
