Animal Speciation.

Project Description

Non-invasive collection methods such as oral/nasal swabs and hair pulls are well established methods to obtain DNA from animals, but samples obtained from these procedures are tedious and time consuming to process in the lab. High bacterial content can potentially compromise the integrity of the sample, resulting in low sample output and suboptimal DNA quality for downstream applications. This can become a major issue when precious samples collected from a rare breed or exotic animal return from the lab with failed results and essentially no options for resampling.  The iSWAB-Animal device is a humane and non-invasive collection system that maintains the integrity of the DNA at the point of collection for samples collected in the field.
