- User-friendly, spill-free design allows for safe, convenient collection of saliva/sputum 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.
The DNA/RNA Shield SafeCollect Saliva Collection Kit is a user-friendly saliva collection kit for stabilizing the nucleic acid content of saliva and sputum samples. DNA/RNA Shield completely inactivates harmful pathogens in the sample, and stabilizes the RNA in a sample for up to 30 days at room temperature. The SafeCollect design eliminates the risk of spilling the stabilization reagent during use, and is ideal for applications that require at-home self collection.
