What It's Used For
iSWAB-Discovery is a DNA collection kit for humans or animals that can capture samples producing robust yields of double stranded, long fragmented DNA from buccal cells using traditional swabs. iSWAB-DSC is essentially identical to iSWAB-DNA but is more cost effective and yields less DNA.
Ideal for: Paternity Testing – Genealogy and Ancestry – Population Studies – Animal Speciation and Genomics
Simple, fast and convenient sample collection: Self collection or assisted collection with high simplicity and ease in less than 2 minutes
High nucleic acid recovery: Up to 7µg of double stranded, long fragment DNA for downstream applications including microarray and NGS
Low bacterial genomic DNA contamination: Achieve less than 1% bacterial genomic DNA contamination
Swab-free sample transport: Decrease sample processing time without compromising sample integrity
Accommodate sampling among various age groups: Suitable for all population segments including infants, toddlers, and elderlies
Traceable: LIMS compatible unique barcodes included on each iSWAB tube for efficient traceability and storage purposes
Room temperature stable: Reduces sample storage and transport costs by eliminating cold chain requirements
Scalable and easy to process: Manual and automation friendly sample processing.
