NUCLEIC-CARD™ matrix, 4 spots

NUCLEIC-CARD is an easy-to-use system for collection, preservation, and long-term storage of nucleic acids at room temperature. The NUCLEIC-CARD 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 collection devices are available in one-, two-, and four-spot formats. They are manufactured by Copan, a market leader in the area of sample collection tools, and distributed by Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Key Features:

• 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, enabling long-term room temperature storage
• Easily automated with commercially-available punching systems to minimize manual handling and maximize sample integrity

For Forensic or Paternity Use Only.

4N6FLOQSwabs™, regular tip

4N6FLOQSwabs, Regular Tip are comprised of a solid, molded plastic applicator shaft with a regular-sized tip that can vary in size and shape. The tip of the applicator is coated with short Nylon fibers that are arranged in a perpendicular fashion. This perpendicular arrangement results from a process called flocking, where the fibers are sprayed onto the tip of the swab while it is held in an electrostatic field. This process creates a highly absorbent, thin layer with an open structure.

Key Features:
• Certified free of DNase, RNase and amplifiable human DNA
• Rapid absorption capability and superior sample release
• Regular size tip for buccal cell collection
• Individually packaged in a convenient peel pouch format
• Break Point (from tip end): 20 mm

Unlike traditional fiber wound swabs, 4N6FLOQSwabs have no internal absorbent core to disperse and entrap the specimen—the sample stays close to the surface for faster and more efficient elution. The perpendicular Nylon fibers act like a soft brush that facilitates improved collection of cellular material. Capillary action between the fiber strands facilitates strong hydraulic uptake of liquid sample, and the sample stays close to the surface allowing easy elution.

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