DNAstable® Blood

Stabilize and Preserve DNA in Whole Blood at Ambient Temperature

  • Preserve DNA in blood and buffy coat samples for at least 12 years at ambient temperatures.
  • Cost effective and convenient blood sample archiving
  • Compatible with all downstream applications

Cost Effective Solutions to Store Blood Samples

DNAstable® Blood is an innovative product for dry storage and preservation of DNA in blood samples at ambient temperatures. The DNAstable Blood matrix forms a thermostable barrier as samples dry, protecting the blood DNA from degradation. DNAstable Blood is available pre-dried in tubes. Once the DNAstable Blood reagent is mixed with blood, samples can be dried in a laminar flow hood at room temperature, in a ventilated 40°C incubator, or in a vacuum centrifuge. Samples can then be stored at ambient temperature for at least 12 years (based on accelerated aging studies).

No degradation of blood DNA after 12 years of storage*

Figure 1. Human whole blood samples (200 µl) were stored for 31 months under various conditions: storage at –20°C (Control); storage in DNAstable Blood at 25°C or 45°C (equivalent to approx. 12 years of storage at room temperature)1; or storage at 45°C without protection (NP). After blood rehydration, genomic DNA was purified using the QIAamp DNA Blood Mini Kit. DNA eluates (10 µl) were analyzed on a 0.8% agarose gel. M: markers.

Higher DNA recovery from whole blood stored in DNAstable blood vs FTA paper

Figure 2. Duplicate Human whole blood samples (200 µl) were stored for 12 months under various conditions: storage at –20°C (Control); storage in DNAstable Blood at 45°C (equivalent to approx. 5 years of storage at room temperature);* or storage at 25°C on FTA paper (FTA). After blood rehydration, genomic DNA was purified using the QIAamp DNA Blood Mini Kit. DNA eluates (10 µl) were analyzed on a 0.8% agarose gel. M: markers. extraction. (M = 1kb ladder).

No degradation of buffy coat DNA after 11 years of storage*

Figure 3. Human buffy coat samples (200 µl) were stored for 27 months under various conditions: storage at –20°C (Control); storage in DNAstable Blood at 45°C (equivalent to approx. 11 years of storage at room temperature)1. After buffy coat rehydration, genomic DNA was purified using the QIAamp DNA Blood Mini Kit. DNA eluates (10 µl) were analyzed on a 0.8% agarose gel. M: markers.

Broad Range of Applications

Successful long-range PCR after 3 years of storage*

Figure 4. Whole blood samples (200 µl) from the same donor were stored for 9 months at –20°C or in DNAstable Blood Tubes at 25°C or 45°C (equivalent to approx. 3 years of storage at room temperature).* After blood rehydration, genomic DNA was purified using the QIAamp® DNA Blood Mini Kit. DNA eluates (2 µl) were then used in PCR of a 5 kb DNA fragment of the human genome using the QIAGEN® LongRange PCR Kit. The PCR products were visualized on a 0.8% agarose gel. M: 1 kb Plus Ladder.

Reliable polymorphism detection using melting curve analysis after 9 months of storage

Figure 5. Human whole blood samples (200 µl) were stored for 9 months at –20°C or in DNAstable Blood Tubes at room temperature. After blood rehydration, genomic DNA was purified using the QIAamp DNA Blood Mini Kit. DNA eluates (2 µl) were then analyzed using the artus® MTHFR LC PCR Kit. ‡ Both samples showed no significant difference in melting curve analysis and indicated a heterozygous variant.

*Accelerated aging studies: A temperature increase of 10°C corresponds to a twofold increase in shelf life. For example, DNA stored at 40°C for 2 years corresponds to an estimated storage time of 8 years at 20°C.
