Faecal DNA Collection & Preservation Mini Tubes are designed for the rapid preservation of DNA from fresh faecal specimens. These tubes contain Faecal DNA Preservative in a liquid format. Moreover, each collection tube is preloaded with beads for effective sample homogenization in any commercially available bead beater equipment (e.g. MP Biomedicals' FastPrep®-24). The user simply collects faecal samples into the tubes and mixes by shaking or vortexing until the faeces is mixed well with preservative. The preservative prevents the growth of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria and fungi, and also inactivates viruses allowing the resulting non-infectious samples to be handled and shipped safely. In addition, the preservative eliminates the need to immediately process or freeze samples and allows the samples to be shipped to centralized testing facilities at ambient temperatures. The components of the preservative allow the DNA in the samples to be preserved at room temperature for over 27 months. This kit is highly suited to collection and preservation of faecal material from mouse, hamster, chinchilla, rabbit and more for microbiome studies and other applications.
