Preserves genetic integrity and expression profiles of samples (cells, tissues, blood, plasma, serum, saliva, urine, feces etc.) at ambient temperatures.
DNA and RNA can be isolated directly without precipitation or reagent removal (compatible with most DNA and RNA purification kits).
Inactivates infectious agents (virus).
DNA/RNA Shield™ ensures nucleic acid stability during sample storage/transport at ambient temperatures. There is no need for refrigeration or specialized equipment. DNA/RNA Shield™ effectively lyses cells and inactivates nucleases and infectious agents (virus), and it is compatible with various collection and storage devices (vacutainers, swabs, nasal, buccal, fecal etc.).
