DNA/RNA Shield Fecal Collection Tube - DX

Description

DNA/RNA Shield Fecal Collection Tubes - DX are specimen receptacle medical devices for molecular-based in vitro diagnostic applications. These stool collection tubes take a microbial snapshot of a sample while inactivating viruses making samples safe and ready for transport. Samples stored in the these stool collection tubes are stable at ambient temperature, and can be frozen for longer-term storage. Simply collect a spoonful of the specimen into the stool collection tubes prefilled with preservative and shake vigorously to ensure proper stabilization.


Applicable For Next-Generation Sequencing, qPCR, microarray
Device Specs 20 x 76 mm screw cap tube prefilled with DNA/RNA Shield (9mL). Spoon attached to screwcap.
Device Storage RNA: Ambient temperature (4°C-25°C) > 1 month
DNA: Ambient temperature (4°C-25°C) > 2 years
DNA & RNA: Frozen (< -20°C): Indefinitely
Registration Status CE-IVD certified
Sample Collection 1g or 1mL stool sample
Sample Source Stool, soil, environmental samples

Yes, extracted nucleic acids are stabilized in DNA/RNA Shield. Prior to downstream applications, clean-up the sample via the appropriate Zymo Research clean-up kit (Genomic DNA Clean and Concentrator (gDCC), DNA Clean and Concentrator (DCC), and RNA Clean and Concentrator (RCC)).

Some components of the reagent (or sample) may have precipitated out of solution during the freeze-thaw process. Once the sample is thawed to ambient temperature, vortex the sample to bring precipitate back into solution. Furthermore, try heating samples in hand or 37°C for 5 minutes and vortex.

No, tissues do not need to be homogenized.

Transfer tissues in to DNA RNA Shield at room temperature, submerge. Tissue can be homogenized or stored frozen prior to homogenization.

Yes, sort directly into DNA/RNA Shield (e.g. Collect 100 µl of FACS sorted cells into minimally 400 µl of DNA/RNA Shield).

DNA & RNA (<-20°C): Indefinitely

RNA > 1 month
DNA > 2 years

DNA/RNA Shield can be used on a wide variety of sample types including cells, tissues, biological fluids (plasma, serum, saliva, urine), and environmental samples (feces, plants, swabs, etc.).




“We extracted RNA from cells suspended in DNA/RNA Shield with the Direct-zol miniprep set from Zymo (using Trizol). It worked perfect for us.”

- Mariska B. (University of Amsterdam)

“I did an assay using RNA/DNA shield and it works perfect. The product have excellent reproducibility when stored at 4°C for up to a month.”

- Maha AE. (University of Florida)

“We use DNA/RNA shield and it works well with adults mosquitoes, larvae, eggs. We store it at RT for weeks and at -4°C or -20°C for months, never saw any DNA degradation.”

- Umberto P. (University of Pavia)
