The NUCLEIC-CARD™ Sample Collection Device consists of a plastic holder carrying a framed NUCLEIC-CARD™ COLOR (1 spot). The NUCLEIC-CARD™ COLOR matrix is chemically-treated to enable cell lysis and protein denaturation. Nucleic acids are immobilized and preserved for long-term storage at room temperature. NUCLEIC-CARD™ COLOR changes color upon sample application to facilitate processing of buccal samples.

The design of the NUCLEIC-CARD™ Sample Collection Device enables accurate positioning of a 4N6FLOQSwabs™ Lollipop swab to ensure more efficient and uniform transfer of buccal cells with a few easy steps.

Key Features:

• Uniform and more reproducible sample transfer
• Enables direct PCR amplification from a card punch, eliminating extraction steps
• Facilitates high quality STR profiles with Applied Biosystems® direct PCR amplification kits
• Certified free of DNase, RNase, and amplifiable human DNA
• Prevents growth of microorganisms to enable long-term room temperature storage
• Easily automated with commercially-available punching systems to minimize manual handling and maximize sample integrity

The NUCLEIC-CARD™ Sample Collection Device is manufactured by Copan, a market leader in the area of sample collection tools, and distributed globally by Thermo Fisher Scientific.

NUCLEIC-CARD™ is a trademark of Copan Flock Technologies.
