"I think it's pretty good to use although took a little while to read through the protocol. The value for Zymo products is usually pretty good compared to the competitors. "

Easy self collection sample
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Nucleic acid extraction from saliva

"The SafeCollect™ Collection Kit allows your patient (or project participant) to perform a nasopharyngeal self-sampling safely, quickly, and economically. Thanks to the buffer used, you can keep the sample at room temperature for several hours, which facilitates sampling logistics. The buffer used also allows the immediate inactivation of the sample, which allows safe transport and processing for your staff."

Ready and easy to use!
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:COVID-19 Testing R&D RUO

"The saliva collection kit had all the components that we needed to effectively collect samples - such as the buffer already in the tube and funnel for collecting saliva. This made the collection process easy for us."

Review date: 05 Jun 2020 | DNA/RNA Shield™ SafeCollect™ Saliva Collection Kit

DNA/RNA Shield™ completely inactivates harmful pathogens in the sample and stabilizes the RNA in a sample for up to 30 days at room temperature. The SafeCollect™ design eliminates the risk of spilling the stabilization reagent during use and is ideal for applications that require at-home self-collection.
