DNAgard® Blood Reagent

Collect, Ship and Preserve DNA in Whole Blood at Room Temperature

  • Preserve and Maintain Sample Integrity for up to 14 months
  • Compatible with different extraction/purification techniques
  • Compatible with all downstream applications

Overview

DNAgard® Blood is designed for the immediate stabilization of DNA in blood with the convenience of room temperature shipping and storage. The preservative reagent rapidly permeates cellular structures and membranes to stabilize and protect genomic DNA in whole blood samples. The use of DNAgard Blood allows a streamlined workflow from blood collection in the clinic or field to sample processing in the laboratory.

  • Collect, ship and preserve DNA in blood under optimal conditions
  • Recover high quality DNA (high MW fragments)
  • Recover quantitative DNA (yield)

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Product Data

Protect DNA at ambient temperatures

Figure 1: DNAgard Blood formulation preserves DNA in whole blood for 14 months. Gel images of isolated genomic DNA recovered from blood samples preserved for 14 months in DNAgard Blood (DGB) at room temperature, in a competitor preservative (COM) at room temperature, unprotected (NP) at room temperature, versus control (-20°C).

Broad range of applications

DNA protected using the DNAgard Blood formulation is suitable for use in many downstream applications, e.g. long-range PCR, real time PCR, etc.

Figure 2A . Successful Long-range PCR after 2 months storage.Genomic DNA isolated from human whole blood stored for 60 days in the DNAgard Blood formulation, non-protected (NP) or frozen at -20°C. Long-range PCR amplification of a 22 Kbp amplicon was performed on the DNA (M = 1 kb ladder). Figure 2B. Real-time PCR after 1 month storage. Genomic DNA isolated from human whole blood stored for 30 days in the DNAgard Blood formulation or frozen at -20°C was quantified using real-time PCR amplification of the b-actin gene.

Representative DNA yield

DNA protected using the DNAgard Blood formation is suitable for use in many downstream applications, e.g. long-range PCR, real time PCR, etc.
