Pharmacogenomics

Choosing the right drugs for treatment is not always easy and Pharmacogenetic testing has experienced a rapid rise in popularity in recent years. However, the sampling and storage of the samples as well as the DNA extraction method are still critical steps.

Therefore, we are committed to developing products for state-of-the-art sample collection and nucleic acid extraction used in Pharmacogenomics and Genetic Testing.

Pharmacogenomics

  1. Pre-filled sampling devices with DNA stabilization buffers for saliva and swab collection
  2. Simple storage without cooling for up to 12 month
  3. High quality DNA from saliva and swab samples without degradation

The SalivaGene Collector simplifies saliva collection by using a lyophilized stabilization buffer, which supersedes cooling of samples and stabilizes genomic DNA for 12 months at room temperature.

 

The SalivaGene Swab Comfort is designed to collect and stabilize DNA from human oral samples. The DNA of swab samples is stable for at least 6 months at room temperature in the stabilization buffer. After sample collection the swab tip is broken at the red breaking point into the tube. During sealing the swab tip is screwed into the lid and can be easily removed.

 

The SalivaGene Collection Module II is a simple, alternative version for saliva sample collection and stabilization using a liquid stabilization buffer. The stabilized sample can be stored in the SalivaGene DNA Stabilizer containing tubes during 12 month at room temperatures without cooling.

Genetic Testing

  1. Fresh or frozen whole blood treated with EDTA or citrate can be used
  2. Manual or fully automated DNA extraction from up to 2 ml of blood samples
  3. Pure genomic DNA for enhanced performance in sensitive downstream applications
