DNA/RNA transport medium for saliva


DNA/RNA Shield Saliva Collection Kit is a DNA and RNA saliva collection kit designed for the collection and preservation of nucleic acids from saliva samples. This DNA and RNA saliva collection kit also takes a microbial snapshot of a sample while inactivating viruses making samples safe and ready for transport. Samples stored in the DNA/RNA Shield Saliva Collection kits are stable at ambient temperature, and can be frozen for longer-term storage. This DNA and RNA saliva collection kit simply requires users to deposit saliva into the spit cup, add the DNA/RNA Shield reagent, and shake vigorously to ensure proper stabilization.

“I’m a Zymo fan! DNA/RNA Shield is a great product. It works great on my precious samples. I trust Zymo Research products and they have great tech support!!”

- Laura T. (USDA)

“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)

“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)
