BuccalFix Swab Stabilisation Buffer

  • Stabilises swab DNA >5 years at room temperature
  • Increases DNA yield by lysing cells
  • Bulk buffer or predispensed in collection tubes

The Isohelix BuccalFix range of stabilising buffers are designed to completely stabilise the DNA in samples from DNA buccal swabs by inhibiting all enzymatic and microbial activity that occurs following any buccal sampling.

The DNA is fully stabilised and importantly, the structure and integrity of the DNA is fully maintained for further downstream processing applications. Once stabilised the DNA can be stored in the BuccalFix at Room Temperature for periods in excess of 2 years, and then easily be processed for DNA isolation by the addition of Proteinase K and subsequent isolation steps.

Available predispensed in tubes for automated processing

The BuccalFix buffers are offered in bulk, as well as pre-filled into various tube formats to suit both manual and more automated applications where 1D and 2D bar coding, and auto de-cap options are valuable. Additionally the new Isolhelix MS mini swabs will fit into the smaller tubes where 96 tube racking is crucial.
