Save Your Sample. Save the Planet. Save Humanity.

Cold-chain logistics has been the convention for sending biological samples from lab to lab and service providers, and now the planet is paying the price as unprecedented amounts of Styrofoam fill landfills. DNA/RNA Shield is a superior sample collection and transportation product that can help labs, service providers and organizations transition away from Styrofoam and dry ice in sample transportation and temperature-controlled shipping logistics.

Safety at All Levels

DNA/RNA Shield™ lyses and effectively inactivates pathogens in a sample. This includes tough-to-lyse microbes or viruses without the need for additional steps, such as heat-treatment, homogenization, or alcohol sterilization.

DNA/RNA Shield™ has been rigorously tested to ensure its capability to inactivate even the toughest of viruses. In an independent study, the virucidal activity was shown to inactivate murine parvovirus.1 DNA/RNA Shield™ abides by the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines for pathogen inactivation.2
