with DNA/RNA Shield vs without perservative chart

DNA/RNA Shield preserves the genetic integrity of a sample at point of collection for sensitive down-stream analyses (i.e. 'Next-Gen' Sequencing, RT-PCR, etc.). Any Sample type can be stored in DNA/RNA shield for transport at ambient temperature, even in the most extreme conditions.

Complete Pathogen Inactivation

Eurovir certified
DNA/RNA Shied lyses and effectively inactivates pathogens in a sample. This includes tough-to-lyse microbes or viruses without need for additional steps, such as heat-treatment, homogenization, or alcohol sterilization.
DNA/RNA Shield has been rigorously tested to ensure inactivation of the toughest viruses.
CDC compliant
DNA/RNA Shield also abides by the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) guidelines for pathogen inactivation.

DNA/RNA Shield In Action

In order to survey dromedary camels in the Oman Desert for Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), researchers at the VetMed University in Vienna needed highly sophisticated, safe sample storage technology. DNA/RNA Shield enabled researchers to store samples in the most extreme desert temperatures while providing complete viral inactivation for safe international travel. The samples collected and stored with DNA/RNA Shield revealed the presence of MERS-Cov in several camels that are closely related to human MERS-Cov, suggesting possible transmission of MERS-Cov from camel to human.

NASA Researchers needed the best sample storage, preservation and biohazard inactivation technology available for groundbreaking research on the International Space Station (ISS). As the only product that can maintain biostatic 'gene snapshot' of collected samples while inactivating any biohazardous material, DNA/RNA Shield was the clear choice for future missions. DNA/RNA Shield's unparalleled sample storage and preservation technology allows NASA to reach new limits and study the effects of microgravity on the human microbiome.

Nyunt, a malariologist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMD) aimed to asses one of the biggest challenges facing the campaign to eradicate Malaria from Mekong region - identifying asymptomatic carriers of the disease. Traditional sample collection, storage, and preservation devices did not have the portability required for infectious parasitic disease research in inaccessible regions; nor did they allow detection of low parasitic loads. DNA/RNA Shield enabled researchers to safely work in the field and travel internationally while preserving low levels of parasitic DNA that were crucial to accurate detection.
