    SafeCollect Skin Collection Kit Sample

    Cat # Name Size Price Quantity



    • User-friendly design allows for safe, convenient collection of skin samples without a wetting solution.
    • High DNA yield during collection with adhesive-based design when compared to swabbing.
    • Stabilizes the DNA and RNA in a sample for transport/storage without the need for cold-chain.

    The SafeCollect Skin Collection Kit includes one EpiLift Collector and one SafeCollect Collection Tube.

    The EpiLift Collector is a novel device intended for easy self-collection of skin microbiome samples that utilizes an innovative adhesive paired with a user-friendly design that is simple and convenient. The EpiLift Collector is available with DNA/RNA Shield for robust DNA/RNA stabilization.

    DNA/RNA Shield completely inactivates harmful pathogens in the sample, and stabilizes the RNA in a sample for up to 30 days at room temperature. The SafeCollect design eliminates the risk of spilling the stabilization reagent during use, and is ideal for applications that require at-home self collection.

    Applicable for NGS, qPCR
