The Isohelix DDK DNA Isolation Kit has been specifically formulated to produce high DNA yield from buccal swabs. The DDK-50 kits are fully optimised for use on buccal samples and offer reduced handling times and increased DNA yields together with many other important technical and practical benefits.

Features

  • Includes Stabilisation & Lysis steps
  • High yields from buccal swabs
  • Optimised to Buccal Cell Swabs
  • Fast handling times
  • Manual or High Throughput formats
  • Considerable test data available
  • No solvents, columns or filtration

This is a multiplex PCR kit designed to show the presence and quality of human genomic DNA. The expected results from intact human genomic DNA are bands of 100bp, 200bp, 300bp, 400bp and 600bp together with an internal control band of 500bp derived from Lambda DNA. The presence of the 500bp band in the negative control demonstrates a successful amplification reaction has occurred.

Stoolfix Gut Microbiome Stabilization Kits

The StoolFiX™ Gut Microbiome Collection and Stabilization prefilled tubes use the latest Isohelix DNA Stabilization chemistry, fully optimized for fecal microbiome DNA.

To minimize sample handling, the Isohelix DNA swabs (SK-3S) are used to collect and transfer the sample into prefilled tubes containing the StoolFiX™ buffer. Once sealed the buffer protects the DNA integrity and maximizes yield for months at room temperature. 
The robust tube is well suited to shipping, combining the collection, transportation and storage of samples into one tube.
Key point

    • Combines effectively with Isohelix swabs for high yield and versatility
    • Transport Tested for at home sampling
    • Eliminates the need for cold storage
    • Stabilized for months at room temperature
    • Minimized sample handling
    • Widely compatible chemistry
    • Optimal DNA Isolation with BuccalFix Plus DNA Isolation kit (1 x BFP-50 = 25 StoolFiX samples)

The Isohelix GeneFix DNA kits use either mini or midi formatted high performance silica spin columns (specifically optimised) for the purification of DNA from Saliva. The isolated genomic DNA is highly purified with a typical A260/280 ratio above 1.8 and A260/230 above 1.0 with a high molecular DNA weight derived directly from the saliva DNA samples, most importantly showing minimum losses from the easy to use protocol.

The Mini format is especially useful where the Scientist wishes to isolate 0.5ml to 1.0 ml aliquots of saliva stabilised from the GeneFix Saliva collector. The Midiformat is used where the whole 2mls of saliva needs to be isolated in a one batch protocol. The DNA produced from both systems are suitable for use in the most demanding of downstream processing applications.

Features

High Purity Genomic DNA with Yields in excess of 100µg

Fully Optimised for Saliva samples

DNA free from trace PCR inhibitors

Designed for both Manual or HT Applications

No Solvent based chemicals required

Ideal for the most demanding downstream Applications

The GeneFix Saliva-Prep kit does not use solvents, columns or filtration and the reduced number of protocol steps make it extremely easy to use where a simple yet efficient isolation method is required.

Features

High yields of in excess of 100µg from 2 mls of Saliva

High Purity for the most demanding of applications

Fully optimised for use with Saliva

Fast handling times, and reduced handling steps

No Solvents, Columns or Filtration requirements

These kits include both the Genefix collection tubes with stabilization buffer and the full isolation kits.


GeneFix is a new easy to use DNA saliva collector that stabilizes DNA long term in 2ml saliva samples. The collection device is pre-filled and has a simple screw-on funnel for simple saliva delivery, directly into the non toxic stabilization buffer.


The GeneFix collection tube clearly indicates the volume of saliva required after which the funnel is removed and cap replaced. The unique funnel design prevents flow back, and the device is fully specified for sample transport and storage.

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
