Collect and store saliva microbiome DNA samples at room temperature
Traditional methods of collection and storage of saliva microbiome samples often include freezing, which always presents challenges in cold chain transport and storage or can complicate the collection process.
Isohelix has addressed these issues with the new GeneFiX™ Saliva Microbiome DNA Collection device. Microbial DNA is perfectly stabilized and preserved at room temperature in the pre-filled buffer for at least 1 year.
Get a reliable snapshot of the oral microbiome
The stabilization is instant, and the buffer prevents bacterial growth, so the sample accurately reflects the oral microbiome at the moment of sampling. The devices and buffer are free from any trace human or bacterial DNA, so researchers can be confident in the accuracy of their results.
Convenient handling and processing
These devices are perfect for remote or at-home testing, with anti-spill funnel, non-hazardous buffer and simple operation. The robust sample tubes are fully transport tested to 95KPa to allow mailing and storage.
The sample tube is compatible with many high throughput sample processing systems and includes a unique 1D bar and human readable code to enable accurate sample tracking.
Saliva microbiome DNA isolation with maximum recovery
For the highest yield of microbiotic DNA the Saliva Prep2 DNA isolation kit is recommended. This kit is easy and quick, and produces yields of microbial DNA that are more than twice the yield of other commonly available kits. Download the technical note.
The DNA isolated using Saliva-Prep2 is intact and readily amplifiable, with high purity, suitable for all downstream analyses. Saliva-Prep2 is scalable allowing for partial samples to be processed so you can preserve the remainder for future testing.
