Sample Collection & Preservation

Sample Collection & Preservation

Long-term DNA and RNA preservation from blood, saliva, swab, stool and urine samples at ambient temperature

Blood cfDNA / cfRNA Collection & Preservation

  • Collection and preservation of both cf-DNA and cf-RNA from a single tube
  • Fixative-free preservative, no cross-linking of DNA
  • Preserve cf-DNA/ct-DNA for 30 days at ambient temperature and for up to 8 days at 37°C
  • Preserve cf-RNA for 30 days at ambient temperature
  • Preserve Circulating Tumour Cells (CTCs) for 14 days at ambient temperature
  • No plasma volume loss after shipping/transportation
  • Prevent hemolysis allowing better separation of plasma
  • Prevent apoptosis of blood cells and fragmentation of genomic DNA
  • Produce high quality/quantity of plasma cf-DNA/ct-DNA/cf-RNA

Saliva Sample Collection and Preservation

  • More than 2 years of saliva DNA preservation at room temperature
  • Saliva RNA Collection and Preservation Devices allow for the preservation of saliva RNA up to 2 months at room temperature
  • Ambient temperature storage and transport
  • Sample can be mailed by regular post or courier service
  • High quality DNA for all downstream applications: NGS, PCR, microarrays, SNPs, methylation studies, etc.
  • Available in both research use format and CE-IVD marked for use in in vitro diagnostic workflows

Swab Sample Collection and DNA Preservation

  • User friendly swab-based collection and DNA preservation
  • Collect from nasal, buccal, saliva, fecal, skin, surfaces, and more
  • Completely stabilize microbiota profiles from the point-of-collection
  • Individually wrapped swabs for safe and sterile sample collection
  • Sample can be mailed by regular post or courier service
  • High-quality DNA for all downstream applications: NGS (Metagenomics/Microbiome), PCR, microarrays, SNPs, methylation studies, etc.
  • Compatible with DNA isolation kits and systems

Stool Sample Collection and Preservation

  • The preservative provides sample homogeneity eliminating sample variability
  • Preserve and safely transport DNA & RNA at ambient temperature
  • No cold shipping/storage needed - hassle-free and cost effective
  • Isolate high quality nucleic acids for any application including 16S NGS
  • Robust preservation over a range of temperatures
  • Eliminates odor and renders samples safe and non-infectious

Urine Sample Collection and Preservation

  • RNA/microRNA/DNA/Proteins are preserved for more than 2 years at room temperature
  • Compatible with most DNA, Total RNA, microRNA and protein isolation methods
  • Preservative is available in a single dose liquid format (ampoule)
  • Preservative is also available in a dried format in tubes - Urine Collection and Preservation Tubes
  • Convenient and useful for preserving cell-free macromolecules as well as exfoliated cells and microorganisms during shipping of urine at ambient temperatures
