A small swab for small animal genotyping

No more tail clipping or ear punching to get mouse or rat DNA for genotyping. The Isohelix Mini buccal swab has a smaller size than other swabs, making it suitable for collection of cells from the mouth of a small animal.

High DNA yield

The MS Mini DNA Swabs use exactly the same matrix material as the original Isohelix swabs - so there is significant history of use. The width of the swab has been reduced from 8mm to 6mm and it has a slightly different shaft attachment. Despite its smaller size, the DNA yield is close to the regular size swabs.

The break point of the shaft is closer to the swab, which ensures the swab will fit in smaller tubes, which in turn fit in standard format 96-well racks for manual or automated processing. 

The swabs are ethylene oxide sterilized and are available in 1, 2 or 3 swabs per wrapper.
