SalivaGard DNA

Reliable and cost-effective saliva DNA collection

  • Saliva DNA collection for a wide range of downstream applications
  • High DNA yield and purity
  • Ideal for small to mid-scale studies

SalivaGard DNA allows for the efficient collection, preservation and shipping of saliva samples for DNA isolation and analysis. The product is designed for ease of use, with a simple process from collection to storage: (1) Spit into collection device, (2) Add the stabilizer to the collection device, (3) Remove the collection funnel from the device, (4) Screw on the cap, (5) Mix gently by inverting the tube 5 – 7 times. DNA in saliva samples are preserved for at least 9 months at room temperature, with high quality DNA recovery. The stabilizing preservative has been formulated to offer flexible DNA recovery from a wide range of DNA extraction and purification kits.

DNA quality at room temperature after 9 months

Figure 1: Saliva samples from 15 donors were collected in SalivaGard DNA tubes. After 9 months, DNA was extracted using Macherey Nagel® Macherey-Nagel NucleoMag® Blood 200 µL automated by KingFisher Flex. DNA quality was analyzed after 9 months via 0.8% agarose gel electrophoresis.

Yield of DNA preserved in SalivaGard DNA measured by UV spectroscopy

Figure-2: Purified DNA extracted 9 months following collection with SalivaGard DNA was analyzed for yield by UV spectroscopy (A260/A280).
