iSWAB-ID is an efficient sample collection system which enables long term room temperature stabilization of the collected sample at the point of collection, while ensuring proper chain of custody. This system allows for maximizing sample recovery and obtaining human DNA compatible with ID profiling assays. DNA extraction can be performed using any commercially available whole blood extraction chemistry.
- Efficiently recovered and stabilized DNA of forensic significance at the point of collection.
- Stabilized DNA remained of sufficient quality to analyze for at least 2 weeks at ambient temperature.
- Unlike processing traditional swabs, collecting samples with iSWAB-ID allows for multiple runs for analysis and archiving purposes.
- Collected samples are stable over 5 years at room temperature storage (based on accelerated stability testing).
