Swab collection kits DX include DNA/RNA Shield Collection Tubes with Swabs and are specimen receptacle medical devices for molecular-based in vitro diagnostic applications. Many sample types can be collected with these swab collection tubes including from the mouth, nose, throat, and wherever a swab may be deemed appropriate per application. To use these swab collection tubes, just swab any sample and break the tip into the collection device prefilled with the DNA/RNA Shield reagent. Samples are stabilized and ready for transport or storage.

Applicable For Next-Generation Sequencing, qPCR, microarray

Device Storage Ambient temperature => 2 years
Registration Status 510(k) cleared Class II Medical Device
FDA- Emergency Use Authorization
CE-IVD Marked
Sample Collection 10% (v/v or w/v)
Sample Source Nose, mouth, throat, biological fluids, upper and lower respiratory specimens
Sample Stability RNA: Ambient temperature (4°C-25°C) > 1 month
DNA: Ambient temperature (4°C-25°C) > 2 years

DNA/RNA Shield can be used on upper and lower respiratory human specimens.

RNA > 1 month

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)
