50x Isohelix Dri-capsules

for long term DNA stability on

sohelix Dri-Capsules
Designed for use with Isohelix SK-1 swabs, these silica gel capsules offer an easy to use alternative to chemical stabilisation for long term stability of the buccal DNA on the swab head prior to isolation.

Features

  • Long term stability at room temperature
  • Liquid free alternative to DSK Kit
  • Easy to handle by patients and professionals
  • Designed for use with SK-1 swab packs
  • Ideal for remote sample collection

Long term stability studies show that the stability of DNA samples on SK1 swabs stored with Isohelix Dri-Capsules is maintained over a period of at least 3 years. The ongoing study is expected to confirm an increased period of stabilization well in excess of the 3 years tested so far.

SGC-50 contains 50 Isohelix dri-capsules individually foil wrapped.
SGC-50-SK1 contains 50 Isohelix dri-capsules plus 50 sk1 swabs, all individually foil wrapped.

The Isohelix range of DNA Buccal Swabs has been specifically designed to give increased yields of high quality buccal cell and genomic DNA. Buccal cell sampling offers a viable alternative to blood collection and, together with the Isohelix range of DNA Isolation and stabilization kits, enables high yields of pure, intact DNA to be collected easily and quickly.


Isohelix DNA swabs are suitable for both human and veterinary use and offer significant advantages over other DNA swab designs in terms of efficiency of cell collection by the unique swab matrix, which combined with a quick release surface, maximizes yields of DNA. Swab batches are ethylene oxide treated and routinely tested for human DNA contamination.

Features

  • High yielding swabs for buccal cell DNA collection
  • Unique swab matrix greatly improves DNA yields
  • Alternative to blood collection
  • Suitable for human and veterinary use
  • Easy to handle and quick to use
  • Available in single and twin sterile packs

Applications

    • Research Genotyping Applications
    • Veterinary Genotyping and Diagnostics
    • Paternity and Heredity Services
    • Forensics and DNA Population Studies

    Additional for SK-1S

    The Isohelix SK-1S DNA swab uses the unique swab matrix design to efficiently collect buccal cell samples.


    Following sampling you simply snap the shaft just above the swab head and place into the tube provided, then seal for containment.


    DNA Buccal Swab Pack:
    1 buccal swab with 5ml tube and cap

    Additional for SK-2S

    The SK-2S has the same features as the SK-1S except that it includes a unique cap design which allows you to simply push the entire swab head from off the shaft into the collection tube after sampling.


    This format has the advantage of being easier to manipulate at the DNA isolation stage whether using manual or HT extraction methods.


    DNA Buccal Swab Pack:
    1 buccal swab with 2ml tube and special release cap

    Additional info for SK-3S, SK-4S & SK-5S

    The SK-3S, SK-4S and SK-5S formats all use the same design and materials used in the SK-1S and SK-2S formats, and have exactly the same advantages for efficiently collecting buccal cell samples.


    Like the SK-1S, you can quickly snap the shaft at the breakpoint if you wish to store the swab in a tube. If this is your preferred method, Cell Projects has available pre capped tubes that can be ordered with these formats.


    SK-3S:1 Buccal Swab per wrapper
    SK-4S: 2 Buccal Swabs per wrapper

Stabilizes DNA at room temperature maintaining integrity for downstream process applications.

The Isohelix BuccalFix range of stabilizing buffers are designed to completely stabilize the DNA in samples from DNA buccal swabs by inhibiting all enzymatic and microbial activity that occurs following any buccal sampling.

The DNA is fully stabilized and, importantly, the structure and integrity of the DNA is fully maintained for further downstream processing applications.

Once stabilized, the DNA can be stored in the BuccalFix at room temperature for periods in excess of 2 years, and then easily be processed for DNA isolation by the addition of Proteinase K and subsequent isolation steps.

The BuccalFix buffers are offered in bulk, as well as pre-filled into various tube formats to suit both manual and more automated applications where 1D and 2D bar coding, and auto de-cap options are valuable. 

Features:

  1. Stabilizes your DNA long term
  2. Maintains DNA structural Integrity
  3. Improves DNA yields and purity
  4. Room temperature storage
  5. Choice of collection tubes â Manual/HT

The MS-001, MS-002, MS-003, MS-004 Mini DNA Isohelix Swabs use exactly the same matrix material as the SK swabs so there is significant history of use but have reduced dimensions and area. The width of the swab has been reduced from 8mm to 6mm. The swabs are Ethylene Oxide sterilized and are available in different swabs numbers per wrapper; the break point has been reduced compared to the SK swab allowing it to be used in smaller tubes.


Benefits:

    • Smaller surface area size
    • Very high pro rata DNA yields
    • Fits smaller tubes so can be 96 racked
    • Lower break point to fit shorter tubes
    • Uses identical swab material to SK series
