    Description

    Collect and transport whole blood at ambient temperatures with this DNA and RNA blood tube. Each DNA and RNA blood tube draws in an exact amount of whole blood which instantly stabilizes DNA and RNA while inactivating any pathogenic organisms in the sample.

    Applicable For Next-Generation Sequencing, qPCR, microarray
    Device Specs Evacuated 16 mm x 100 mm blood collection tubes pre-filled with DNA/RNA Shield (6 mL)
    Device Storage Ambient temperature => 2 years
    Sample Collection 3 mL blood draw
    Sample Source Whole blood (fresh or anti-coagulated)
    Sample Stability RNA: Ambient temperature (4°C-25°C) > 1 month
    DNA: Ambient temperature (4°C-25°C) > 2 years
    DNA & RNA: Frozen (< -20°C): Indefinitely

    Some components of the reagent (or sample) may have precipitated out of solution during the freeze-thaw process. Once the sample is thawed to ambient temperature, vortex the sample to bring precipitate back into solution. Furthermore, try heating samples in hand or 37°C for 5 minutes and vortex.

    No, tissues do not need to be homogenized.

    Transfer tissues in to DNA RNA Shield at room temperature, submerge. Tissue can be homogenized or stored frozen prior to homogenization.

    Yes, sort directly into DNA/RNA Shield (e.g. Collect 100 µl of FACS sorted cells into minimally 400 µl of DNA/RNA Shield).

    DNA & RNA (<-20°C): Indefinitely

    RNA > 1 month
    DNA > 2 years

    DNA/RNA Shield can be used on a wide variety of sample types including cells, tissues, biological fluids (plasma, serum, saliva, urine), and environmental samples (feces, plants, swabs, etc.).

    Yes, extracted nucleic acids are stabilized in DNA/RNA Shield. Prior to downstream applications, clean-up the sample via the appropriate Zymo Research clean-up kit (Genomic DNA Clean and Concentrator (gDCC), DNA Clean and Concentrator (DCC), and RNA Clean and Concentrator (RCC)).



    “I’m a Zymo fan! DNA/RNA Shield is a great product. It works great on my precious samples. I trust Zymo Research products and they have great tech support!!”

    - Laura T. (USDA)

    “We use DNA/RNA shield and it works well with adults mosquitoes, larvae, eggs. We store it at RT for weeks and at -4°C or -20°C for months, never saw any DNA degradation.”

    - Umberto P. (University of Pavia)

    “I did an assay using RNA/DNA shield and it works perfect. The product have excellent reproducibility when stored at 4°C for up to a month.”

    - Maha AE. (University of Florida)
