CapSure™ HS LCM Caps (Alignment Tray & Incubation Block required, not included) (Applied Biosystems™)

Specially designed for use with the ARCTURUS® Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) instruments, CapSure® HS and CapSure® Macro LCM Caps enable the precise and rapid extraction of pure populations of cells from heterogeneous sample preparations. CapSure Caps may be used to isolate individual cells or thousands of cells on a single cap.

Key product features:
• Gentle application – non-damaging microdissection preserves the integrity of the captured material
• Versatile extraction – capture both large and small amounts of cells

Ensure the Integrity of Microdissected Cells for Downstream Molecular Analysis
All CapSure® LCM Caps have a patented transfer film bonded to the lower cap surface. Using the ARCTURUS® Microdissection Systems an infrared laser pulses through the top of the cap during LCM and interacts with the transfer film, which then melts and bonds to the cells or regions of interest. The film absorbs the laser radiation – instead of the tissue or cell sample – creating a gentle, non-damaging microdissection that preserves the integrity of the captured material.

Extract Large Amounts of Cells with CapSure® Macro LCM Caps
CapSure® Macro LCM Caps provide the maximum area for capturing several thousand cells on a single cap. This is particularly useful for downstream applications that require large numbers of cells to obtain enough material for analysis, such as some protein analysis techniques. The CapSure® Macro LCM Caps fit directly onto 0.5 ml microcentrifuge tubes for extraction of biological molecules from captured cells.

Extract Small Numbers of Cells with High Sensitivity CapSure® HS Caps
CapSure® HS LCM Caps enable the highly sensitive extraction and detection of biological molecules from small numbers of cells. CapSure® HS LCM Caps contain ridges at the bottom that keep the active capture area of the cap twelve microns off the surface of the sample. This separation ensures the precise capture of up to several hundreds of cells. In addition, the CapSure® LCM Caps work with ExtracSure devices that minimize the dilution of biological molecules extracted from captured cells. This optimizes the recovery of these molecules for downstream molecular analysis.

NUCLEIC-CARD™ Sample Collection Device

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.
