Saliva RNA Collection and Preservation Devices Dx Norgen’s Saliva RNA Collection and Preservation Devices Dx are designed for 1) safe and non-invasive saliva collection and 2) preservation of RNA in saliva samples at ambient temperature.
Each of the 50 Saliva RNA Collection and Preservation Devices Dx consists of 3 components: (1) Saliva Collection Funnel and Collection Tube, (2) Collection Tube Cap, and (3) Norgen’s Saliva RNA Preservative contained within a sealed squeezable ampule. Saliva samples are collected by spitting inside the Collection Funnel which has been assembled with the Collection Tube. After collecting the required volume of saliva the Collection Funnel is removed and the contents of the Preservative ampule are then added and mixed with the collected saliva. The Saliva Collection Tube is subsequently sent to the laboratory for RNA isolation and analysis. RNA can be isolated from the preserved saliva samples using Norgen’s Total RNA Isolation Kit Dx (P4-0450). Each of Norgen’s Collection Tubes is labelled with a unique serial number that can be used for secure and anonymous tracking of the sample. The saliva RNA in preserved samples is stable for up to 2 months at room temperature. This kit is ideal for collecting and preserving RNA samples for in vitro diagnostic use for medical purposes. Norgen’s Saliva RNA Collection and Preservation Devices Dx do not provide a diagnostic result. It is the sole responsibility of the user to use and validate these devices in conjunction with a downstream in vitro diagnostic assay. SALIVA RNA PRESERVATIVE Norgen’s Saliva RNA Preservative is an aqueous storage buffer designed for rapid cellular lysis and subsequent preservation of RNA from fresh saliva specimens. The buffer eliminates the need to immediately process or freeze samples and allows the samples to be shipped to centralised testing facilities at ambient temperature. The components of the buffer allow samples to be stored for up to 2 months at room temperature. The Saliva RNA Preservative also inactivates all bacteria, yeast and viruses present in the saliva sample. NUCLEIC ACID ISOLATION FROM PRESERVATIVE Saliva RNA can be isolated from the preserved saliva samples using Norgen’s Total RNA Purification Kit Dx (P4-0450). To minimise irregularities in diagnostic results, suitable controls for downstream applications should be used.
