Almost everyone has provided a blood sample at a certain point of life, but ever wondered why so many tubes? How Blood Samples Are Taken Using current analytical technologies, several health indicators/analytes can only be obtained from blood and therefore giving a blood sample is inevitable. The collected blood sample… read more →
Mawi DNA Technologies: ASHG 2019 Mawi DNA Technologies will be exhibiting at ASHG 2019 held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas October 15-19, 2019 — we invite you to stop by our booth #212.
Oxidative stress is an imbalance between reactive species and antioxidants production, leading to protein, DNA and lipid damage. The aim of this study was to evaluate the oxidative stress levels in buccal cells of ten non-shisha and heavy shisha smokers using MAWI iSWAB protein tubes.

Have you ever wondered why isolating quality DNA from Spit/Saliva is inconsistent, especially when it comes to DNA sequencing? Spit/Saliva is a complex biological matrix with a mixture of different DNA sources that vary in percentage from one individual to another White blood cells Buccal cells Lysed cells… read more →
Here are the differences between Non-Invasive vs Invasive Biosampling.
Traditional non-invasive sample collection has two approaches to try and collect and produce high gDNA recovery. While both methods have benefits, they also have their challenges. Saliva/Mouthwash Self collection, but limited to individuals capable of producing sufficient saliva Collection solution contains alcohol Yields sheared, short-fragment DNA not optimal for complex downstream applications Up… read more →
Saliva Collection is not a Universal Sample Collection Tool: 20% – 46% of the Population Suffers from Dry Mouth Not everybody can produce enough saliva: Collecting 1-2 mL of Saliva within 30 minutes (as required by most saliva collection kits) can be very challenging for a significant portion of the… read more →
