A rapid and simple way to preserve DNA from fresh fecal samples
Norgen’s Fecal DNA Collection & Preservation Mini Tubes are designed for the rapid preservation of DNA from fresh fecal specimens. These tubes contain Norgen’s Fecal DNA Preservative in liquid format. Moreover, each collection tube is preloaded with beads for effective sample homogenization in any commercially available bead beater equipment.
Simply collect fecal samples with the tubes and mix by shaking or vortexing until the feces is mixed well with the preservative. The preservative prevents the growth of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria and fungi, and also inactivates viruses allowing the resulting non-infectious samples to be handled and shipped safely at ambient temperatures. The components of the preservative allow the DNA in the samples to be preserved at room temperature for over 27 months.
The Fecal DNA preservative eliminates the need to immediately process or freeze samples, allowing samples to be shipped at ambient temperatures.
The Fecal DNA Mini Tubes are compatible with any commercially available bead beater equipment and most fecal DNA isolation methods.
Samples stored in Norgen Biotek’s Fecal DNA Mini Tubes can be preserved at room temperature for over two years.
The Fecal DNA Mini Tubes can be used to collect and preserve fecal material from many animals for microbiome studies and other applications.
