  • Compatible with many sample types, including nose, mouth, throat and skin
The Swab Collection and Total Nucleic Acid Preservation System is designed for collection, ambient storage and transport of total nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from samples collected using a swab, including nasal, buccal, saliva, fecal, skin, surfaces, etc. The Swab Collection and Total Nucleic Acid Preservation System contain Norgen’s Swab Preservative in a liquid format. The user simply collects the specimen using the provided swab, and then transfers the swab into the Swab Preservative. The Swab 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 Swab 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 Swab Preservative allow DNA samples to be stored at room temperature for over 2 years and RNA samples to be stored at room temperature for over 2 months. Swab samples collected and preserved using Norgen’s Swab Collection and Total Nucleic Acid Preservation System are compatible with most commercially available DNA and RNA isolation methods. Samples stored in the tubes have been used successfully with most of Norgen Biotek’s DNA and RNA isolation kits and reagents, including the Total RNA Purification Kit (P4-0058) and Norgen’s Saliva DNA Isolation Kit (P4-0052). For purification of total nucleic acids please refer to the supplementary protocol provided with the Total RNA Purification Kit (P4-0058).
