Urine Collection Kits and Cups
Urine collection kits for the collection and stabilization of urine samples. Urine collection kits include conditioning buffer for the stabilization of cell-free DNA and RNA in urine during sample transport or storage. Urine collection cups and buffer can be purchased individually or as part of a complete kit.
What Are Urine Collection Kits Used For?
Urine collection kits are used for the collection, research, and diagnostic analysis of urine specimens. Reagents included in urine collection kits inactivate all infectious agents and protect the genetic integrity, microbiome, and viral profile of the urine specimen. A great compliment to our urine collection products is our innovative urine extraction kits that are designed for easy, reliable, and fast isolation of total or cell-free RNA and DNA.
What to Look for in Urine Collection Cups
The pre-assembled sterile urine collection cup is suited for use by both men and women. In addition, the user will experience an easy collection process with no mess whatsoever. Furthermore, although the specimen profile remains intact at room temperature when Urine Conditioning Buffer is included, a researcher may also be looking for cups that don’t leak during shipping or crack if they have to be frozen. Our urine collection cups transport securely and withstand freezing temperatures with no damage.
What Analysis Is Completed Using a Urine Sample?
Urine Collection Kits with Urine Conditioning Buffer are designed for the collection and preservation of nucleic acids from urine specimens. These urine collection kits take a microbial snapshot of a sample while inactivating viruses making samples safe and ready for transport. Additionally, Urine Conditioning Buffer protects the genetic integrity of the urine specimen which makes them suitable for many molecular analyses including cancer cells and virus detection analysis. Specimens stored in these urine collection kits are stable at ambient temperature.
What's Next for Urine Collection?
Our urine collection kits with reagent included preserve urine specimens at room temperature enabling urine collections of patients’ or donors at home without the need of traveling to clinic, lab, and hospital for specimen submission. Devices that are more user friendly (reducing the number of steps), while maintaining the integrity of samples and reducing user contamination is where the market is going. In the future, ease of use and safety will drive innovation of urine specimen collection.
