The Bunny Wipe fecal sample collector is a fecal collection device for the convenient collection of fecal material for downstream nucleic acid analysis. Developed with a focus on at-home collection, the Bunny Wipe provides a user-friendly method for users to collect fecal samples in the privacy of their own bathroom. Replacing some of the traditional, more cumbersome methods of fecal collection (collection buckets, cups, scoops, etc.), the Bunny Wipe mimics toilet-paper for a more familiar and comfortable collection process. By eliminating some of the mess and discomfort of traditional fecal collection, the Bunny Wipe is perfect for applications where the user experience is especially important.
Coupled with the Bunny Wipe sample collector is the DNA/RNA Shield Fecal Collection Tube, powered by the DNA/RNA Shield sample stabilization reagent. These fecal collection tubes take a microbial snapshot of a sample, while inactivating viruses, making samples safe and ready for transport. Samples stored in these fecal collection tubes are stable at ambient temperature, and can be frozen for longer-term storage. Simply use the Bunny Wipe to collect a fecal sample, peel off the collection strip containing the fecal material, and store the collection strip in the fecal collection tube to stabilize the sample.
The Bunny Wipe coupled with the DNA/RNA Shield Fecal Collection Tube, is the ideal product for the at-home collection of fecal samples that undergo nucleic acid extraction/analysis. Zymo Research offers customization solutions for customers that would like to customize a collection kit to fit their particular application.
|Applicable For||Next-Generation Sequencing, qPCR, microbiome analysis.|
|Sample Source||Fecal samples collected via wiping|
Q1: I wiped and didn’t see much fecal material on the collection strip, is that okay?
Yes, that is okay. Analysis can be performed with small amounts of fecal material.
Q2: Can I wipe with normal toilet paper first?
No. The Bunny Wipe should be used first before normal toilet paper. After wiping with the Bunny Wipe, normal toilet paper can then be used.
Q3: Is the wipe safe to flush?
Yes. The wipe is completely water soluble and can be flushed safely.
Q4: Is it ok to collect a stool sample if I have diarrhea or constipation?
Yes. A sample can be collected in such cases.
Q5: Do I need to refrigerate or freeze my sample after collection?
No. The DNA/RNA Shield reagent stabilizes the sample at room temperature.
Q6: I accidentally dropped my wipe in the toilet before collecting a sample, can I still use it?
No. The wipe should NOT be used in such cases.
Q7: Can I complete the test if I have rectal bleeding, bleeding hemorrhoids or my period?
Yes. The microbiome of the sample can still be analyzed even if blood is present.
