Forensics

Ambient Long-Term Storage of DNA & RNA

Sample integrity is essential in forensic analysis, so purified DNA or RNA extracts are usually retained in -20°C or -80°C freezers. However, these samples can be degraded from repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Also, with the increasing number of purified nucleic acid samples a laboratory must store for long periods, forensics facilities face purchasing increasingly more freezers. This creates costs associated with an expanding floor footprint and additional utilities for both online and back-up/emergency power generation.

DNAstable products enable long-term dry storage of purified DNA at ambient temperatures.

DNAstable products enable long-term dry or liquid storage of purified DNA at ambient temperatures.

RNAstable products enable long-term dry storage of RNA (total, mRNA, miRNA)  at ambient temperatures.
