dna saliva oracollect dnaI am pleased to announce the launch of ORAcollect•DNA (OCR-100), the newest product in the DNA Genotek family. ORAcollectDNA is a sample collection kit that uses the same underlying technology as Oragene•DNA, but with a different collection method. The fundamental difference between Oragene and ORAcollect•DNA is the way the sample is collected.  Instead of spitting into an Oragene kit, the patient/donor uses the integrated sponge to collect the sample and then invert the sponge and secure it in the collection tube.

ORAcollect•DNA was developed to overcome collection and processing challenges commonly experienced with traditional buccal swabs. Some of the key attributes of ORAcollect•DNA are:

  • Sample protection in closed tube
  • Room temperature stability for months
  • Liquid sample in a lab-friendly tube for workflow efficiency and automation in the lab
  • Sample traceability with integrated barcoding

The quality and quantity of DNA collected using ORAcollect•DNA is significantly better than that collected with a buccal swab and will give you more confidence and success with every sample collected.

ORAcollect•DNA is best suited to molecular diagnostic and human identification applications.
For more information on ORAcollect•DNA go here or contact us here. You can also request sample kits here.

ORAcollect•DNA is not available for sale in the United States.
