RNA DNA Proteins

At Ambient Temperature The iSWAB-Microbiome-EL sample collection device allows for the non-invasive collection, concentration, and stabilization of intact buccal cells, oral fluid or any mammalian cells collected with a NextSwab, oral swab or cytobrush allowing for real time ambient stabilization of total DNA/RNA and proteins from the point of collection to processing. Maintaining complete sample stability and protecting it from degradation is a significant challenge, while current stabilization methods compromise quality and/or safety. The need to collect samples in saliva, saline, viral tranport and dry swabs provide limited shelf life, forcing labs to invest in cold storage infrastructure or commit resources to immediate sample processing. Other options for non-invasive collection also suffer from short shelf life storage as well as low quality and unusable RNA DNA and Proteins.

Features and Benefits:

  • Swab-free sample transport: Decrease sample processing time without compromising sample integrity

  • Increase process efficiency: Extended shelf life stability (up to 4 weeks at room temp, several years at -20 C and -80 C), reduced processing time, and minimal storage footprint

  • High quality RNA for downstream applications such as RT-PCR, End Point PCR, Microarray and RNA-seq for gene expression analysis

  • High quality DNA for downstream applications such as Next Generation Sequencing Microarray, RT-PCR up to 30μg of double stranded, long fragment DNA
  • High quality Proteins for downstream applications such as Rapid Antigen, IgM and IgG antibodies, Point-of-care (POC) tests, Laboratory tests and more
  • Room temperature stable: Reduce sample storage and transport costs by eliminating cold chain requirements

  • Self collection or assisted collection in less than 2 minutes: Suitable for all population segments including infants, toddlers, and elderly

  • Traceable and reliable chain of custody: LIMS compatible unique bar­codes included on each collection device for efficient traceability and storage purposes

  • Fast and easy accessioning: Automation Friendly sample processing

  • Process more samples per day: Scalable Sample Handling Solutions Available
  • Compatible with a variety of Swab Types: Oral, Nasal, MT, Nasopharyngeal [NP]
  • Eliminates Swab Contamination: No Glue Contamination or Swab Interference
