Saliva kits for the recovery of DNA and RNA .

DNA Genotek‘s kits provide DNA and RNA in excellent quality and high yield. Other highlights include easy sample collection, safe handling and perfect stabilization of nucleic acids over days and weeks at room temperature. This makes transporting samples to the laboratory or study center safe and easy. DNA Genotek’s kits have also proven excellent for collecting samples from study participants at home (self-collection).

Traditionally, bone marrow donor registries and transplant centers collect DNA samples from potential donors through either a blood sample or buccal swab. In contrast, sample collection with ORAgene kits is non-invasive and still provides high quality DNA for HLA typing.
