4N6FLOQSwabs™ for Crime Scene (regular tip, peelpouch)

At crime scenes, it is essential that the sample collection device prevents microbial contamination while preserving nucleic acid integrity. The unique 4N6FLOQSwabs™ for Crime Scene product line is specifically designed for sample collection of sweat, semen, blood stains, skin, and environmental trace evidence found at the crime scene. 4N6FLOQSwabs™ for Crime Scene feature short Nylon® fibers that are arranged in a perpendicular fashion to create a highly absorbent thin layer with an open structure to facilitate sample elution. 4N6FLOQSwabs™ for Crime Scene (Regular Tip, Peelpouch) have regular-size tips. Each swab is individually wrapped in a convenient peelpouch format.

Key Features:

• Certified free of DNase, RNase and amplifiable human DNA
• Rapid absorption capability and superior sample release
• Antimicrobial treatment to prevent microbial growth and improve sample preservation
• No need for sample drying
• Break Point (from tip end): 20 mm

4N6FLOQSwabs™ from Crime Scene are manufactured by Copan, a market leader in the area of sample collection tools, and distributed globally by Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Color-coded Sample Alert Labels (Thermo Scientific™)

Increase the safety and efficiency of sample handling and identification with Thermo Scientific™ Color-Coded Sample Alert Labels.

GenoTube Livestock Swabs

The Applied Biosystems GenoTube Livestock Swab is easy to use and can be handled by even novice users. With its proprietary drying system, it rapidly reduces enzyme activity, preventing the breakdown of nucleic acids and proteins that are essential for many laboratory diagnostic procedures. Once dried, collected samples can be stored without refrigeration for simple and cost-effective transportation. In the lab, the samples can be easily reconstituted and used for numerous analyses.

Excellent sample quality—fast drying, not influenced by local humidity
Convenient versatility—capable of collecting different sample matrices, such as nasal swabs, oral fluids, blood, and fecal samples
Cost-effective—low transportation costs because refrigeration or rapid transport not required
Individually packaged—allows a unique identifier on both the swab cap and tube for clear identification and also reduces the potential for cross-contamination
Superior conservation—no degradation of DNA after long-term storage
Sample flexibility—sample can be used for antigen or antibody diagnostics (e.g., PCR, ELISA, etc.)

Genotyping applications
Collecting DNA samples for genotyping and sequencing using the GenoTube Livestock Swab is easy and rapid. After the swab containing the sample is placed back in the tube, the sample is dried, and the DNA in the sample is conserved. The tube can be transported and stored under normal conditions without refrigeration. DNA contained in the sample remains stable for years.

NOTE: this product has a minimum order quantity of 100 pieces.

Sterilin™ Gel Transport Swabs (Thermo Scientific™)
