• DNA/RNA preservation and sample transport (at ambient temperature; cold-free)
  • Pathogen Inactivation (bacteria, fungus, parasites & viruses)
  • Streamlined Purification (no reagent removal, universally compatible, automatable

The DNA/RNA preservation and sample transport for subsequent nucleic acid analysis has historically been difficult due to DNA/RNA degradation or modification caused by environmental factors and by pathogens present in the sample. Current collection, DNA/RNA preservation and sample transport methods require the use of cold-chain logistics to prevent or slow down the degradation process. Likewise, in order to ship pathogenic samples a series of steps must be performed in order to inactivate the sample. In addition, depending on the sample being collected, specialized devices or equipment might be required. DNA/RNA Shield preserves the genetic integrity and expression profiles of samples at ambient temperatures (cold-free). DNA and RNA can be isolated directly without precipitation or reagent removal (compatible with most DNA and RNA purification kits). Inactivates infectious agents (virus). DNA/RNA Shield allows for peace of mind with your DNA/RNA preservation and sample transport.
