DNA/RNA Shield SafeCollect Swab Collection Kit

Highlights

  • User-friendly, spill-free design allows for safe, convenient collection of swab samples. Ideal for at-home self collection applications.
  • Completely inactivates harmful pathogens at the point of collection, for worry-free transport and downstream analysis.
  • Stabilizes the DNA and RNA in a sample for transport/storage without the need for cold-chain.
Description

The DNA/RNA Shield SafeCollect Swab Collection Kit is a user-friendly collection kit for stabilizing the nucleic acid content of samples collected with a swab.  DNA/RNA Shield completely inactivates harmful pathogens in the sample, and stabilizes the RNA in a sample for up to 30 days at room temperatureThe SafeCollect design eliminates the risk of spilling the stabilization reagent during use, and is ideal for applications that require at-home self collection.

Swab Samples

Refer to recommended purification kits

The SafeCollect design seals the stabilizing reagent behind a pierceable safety seal. The tube prevents spillage or user contact during the use of the device, only releasing the reagent when the swab is placed into the tube.

The SafeCollect devices are filled with DNA/RNA Shield, which is compatible with most commercially available DNA/RNA extraction/analysis workflows. DNA/RNA Shield is an Inactivating Transport Medium (ITM) and a recipient of a 510(k).
