DNA/RNA Shield™ Blood Collection Tubes
Nucleic Acid Stabilization at Ambient Temperature
- • An evacuated blood tube filled with our novel DNA/RNA Shield™ collection and storage reagent
- • Preserves nucleic acid at ambient temperatures for up to 30 days
- • DNA and RNA can be isolated directly without precipitation or reagent removal
- • Inactivates infectious agents (virus)
Viruses, bacteria and yeast are effectively inactivated by DNA/RNA Shield™. Samples containing the infectious agent (virus, bacteria, yeast) were treated with DNA/RNA Shield™ or mock (PBS) treated for 5 minutes. Titer (PFU) was subsequently determined by plaque assay. Validated by: Influenza A - D. Poole and Prof. A. Mehle, Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, University of Wisconsin, Madison; Ebola (Kikwit) - L. Avena and Dr. A. Griffiths, Department of Virology and Immunology, Texas Biomedical Research Institute; HSV-1/2 - H. Oh, F. Diaz and Prof. D. Knipe, Virology Program, Harvard Medical School; E. coli, L. fermentum, B. subtilis, S. cerevisiae - Zymo Research Corporation)
*Disclaimer: This graph only displays results from E. coli inactivation. Each microbe was tested independently and were combined into one graph for brevity. Bacterial cultures were grown between 108 - 109 cells and yeast cultures were grown between 107 - 108 cells.
