A rapid and simple way to collect, preserve, and ship stool samples
Norgen’s Fecal Swab Collection and Preservation System is designed to collect, store, and transport nucleic acids from stool specimens. The Fecal Swab Collection and Preservation System tubes contain Norgen’s Stool Preservative in a liquid format. Users must simply collect the specimen using the provided swab, and then transfer the swab into the Stool Preservative.
The Stool 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. In addition, the Stool Preservative eliminates the need to immediately process or freeze samples, allowing the samples to be shipped at ambient temperatures.
The Stool Preservative eliminates the need to immediately process or freeze samples.
Samples can be stored at room temperature for over 2 years for DNA and 7 days for RNA.
To extend the stool RNA stability in the preservative, storage at -20°C or -70°C is recommended.
The Fecal Swab Collection Kit is compatible with most DNA/RNA isolation methods.
