FAQ

Are your products FDA-cleared?

The FDA has recently granted Zymo 510(k) clearance for the DNA/RNA Shield collection tube as a class II medical device, intended for the stabilization and inactivation of upper and lower respiratory human specimens suspected of containing SARS-CoV-2.

Additionally, several of Zymo products have been authorized by the FDA for emergency use (Emergency Use Authorization) during the COVID-19 pandemic. These include the DNA/RNA Shield collection tube w/ swab, DNA/RNA Shield saliva/sputum collection kit, Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead Extraction Kit for sample extraction and the Quick SARS-CoV-2 rRT-PCR Test Kit for the sensitive detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus in respiratory samples.

Zymo products (sample collection devices and viral extraction kits) are also available as a CE marked in Vitro diagnostic device (CE-IVD) and have been commercialized in the European Union and other applicable countries.
