Safely store raw samples at room temperature

Automation-friendly GenPlates will protect samples at room temperature until they're extracted for research

Two GenPlates, one on top of the other

GenPlates are an automation friendly 384-well format for storing raw blood, buffy coat, saliva and other fluid biospecimens at room temperature for later extraction of high quality dsDNA.

Product features

Reliable aliquots

Each aliquot of the GenPlate yields DNA sufficient for whole genome sequencing. The foil and plastic seals allow for multi-aliquot storage using a single container while maintaining single-aliquot use.

Automated storage compatibility

GenPlates are compatible with commercially available liquid handlers and robotic systems. The barcodes on each GenPlate allow for positive convenient labeling and faster aliquot retrieval.

Non-biohazard shipping & transport

The FTA chemistry enables shipment of samples without “biohazard” labeling or dry ice, which lowers the overall shipment weight and results in more economical transportation.


The GenPlates have a small footprint, which means they take up very little storage space. When samples are better organized, less time is wasted searching for resources to conduct experiments.
