Biomatrica® has developed a proprietary core technology, SampleMatrix, to stabilize and protect biological materials at room temperature without degradation. The SampleMatrix technology was designed by combining extremophile biology that enables long-term survival of organisms in extremely dry environments with synthetic chemistry. By exploiting these unique characteristics, Biomatrica products enable researchers to stabilize biological samples for long periods of time.
Samples are preserved through formation of a protective thermo-stable barrier during a simple air-drying process. Samples are protected from degradation from heat and UV light. Since SampleMatrix is designed to completely dissolve within minutes during sample rehydration, there is complete and rapid recovery of samples without degradation or loss of biological activity. The recovered samples can be used directly for downstream applications without further purification.
