Blood Collection Tubes Stabilize DNA at Point of Collection

Posted on 11 Jun 2012
Tubes are available for the collection, preservation, and shipping of DNA in whole blood at ambient temperatures. Also available is a next generation liquid stabilizer that offers DNA preservation in both liquid and dry formats.

The Vacuette DNAgard Blood Tubes are for collection and the DNAstable Plus is the next generation liquid stabilizer that offers DNA preservation in both liquid and dry formats. RNAstable LD, which offers the ability to protect RNA using a liquid-to-dry format, enables automation compatibility

The three products expand Biomatrica's (San Diego, CA, USA) product portfolio for preserving biological samples at ambient temperatures. "We are keen to see the use of our technologies in the sample collection devices segment since their use in clinical and eventual diagnostic research has an immediate benefit to molecular diagnostics and the field of personalized medicine," said Dr. Rolf Muller, CSO at Biomatrica.

"We are excited to be working with the Biomatrica team and technology," said Manfred Buchberger, CEO Preanalytics of Greiner Bio-One (Kremsmünster, Austria). "The VACUETTE brand name has been successfully distributed to over 100 countries. The combination of Biomatrica technology with GBO's devices enables us to introduce innovative preanalytic solutions for the collection of human samples."

Biomatrica's product range maintains the integrity of DNA, RNA, saliva, blood, tissues, and cells both at the point of collection and point of detection. The SampleMatrix technology enables the use of ambient temperatures for sample collection, preservation, and detection resulting in maintenance of sample integrity, ease-of-use, and reduction of sample costs. The company's products have been adopted and validated at US government forensic agencies, academic research institutions, global biobanks, and diagnostic laboratories.
