DNA/RNA Shield Transport and Preservation Medium,
Collection Tubes for Fecal, Saliva, Blood and Swab Samples

DNA/RNA Shield is a DNA and RNA transport and storage medium for any biological sample. DNA/RNA Shield preserves the genetic integrity and expression profiles of samples at ambient temperatures (no refrigeration or freezing needed) and completely inactivates infectious agents (viruses, bacteria, fungi, & parasites).

Nucleic acid from samples stored in this DNA and RNA transport and storage medium can be isolated directly without precipitation or reagent removal (compatible with most DNA and RNA purification kits).
