DNA/RNA Shield Saliva Sputum Collection Kit - DX


DNA/RNA Shield Saliva/Sputum Collection Kit - DX are specimen receptacle medical devices for molecular-based in vitro diagnostic applications. This saliva/sputum 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/Sputum Collection kits are stable at ambient temperature for up to 28 days. This saliva/sputum collection kit simply requires users to deposit specimen saliva into the spit cup, add the DNA/RNA Shield reagent, and shake vigorously to ensure proper stabilization.

Applicable For Next-Generation Sequencing, qPCR, microarray

DNA/RNA Shield can be used to collect saliva and sputum specimens (FDA-cleared for sputum collection only)

RNA > 1 month
DNA > 2 years

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.

“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)
