The NUCLEIC-CARD Collection Device System includes a NUCLEIC-CARD Collection Device, developed for robust collection and storage of DNA buccal samples. The integrated collection system incorporates a redesigned DNA collection swab and collection chamber with the established chemically-treated NUCLEIC-CARD matrix for cell lysis and protein denaturation. With this integrated collection system, the ability to achieve a high first pass success rate for reference samples and decrease laboratory costs is within reach.
Key features include: • Higher sample transfer—redesigned N6FLOQSwabs lollipop swab and sample collection chamber for improved sample uniformity and transfer efficiency • Certified free of DNase, RNase, and amplifiable human DNA • Consistent, high quality STR profiles with Applied Biosystems direct PCR amplification kits • Enables long-term archiving of samples at room temperature • Efficient—card includes an area for cleaning strikes while punching with manual or automated puncher • Facilitates automated processing—a color change on the card indicates the location of the sample on the matrix, helping guide commercially-available automated punching systems, as well as manual punching • Customizable—NUCLEIC-CARD Collection Device can be purchased separately or can be included in a custom buccal sample collection kit as part of our customization services • Easier sample collection—user-friendly instructions included in the packaging
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.
