Preserve and Protect DNA samples at ambient temperatures

Securely ship samples in the dry state with GenTegra

GenTegra DNA and GenTegra RNA

GenTegra-DNA is a water soluble chemical matrix that when added to purified DNA allows it to be air-dried to form a solid matrix which coats, preserves and protects DNA in the dry state at ambient temperatures. The protection is near perfect at the extremes of temperature (-80°C to +56°C) for many years. GenTegra-DNA is especially valuable and effective at protecting against the high temperatures likely to be encountered when shipping samples.

Product features

DNA Protection

GenTegra DNA protects DNA from hydrolysis and oxidation, stabilizing samples for long-term ambient temperature storage.

Wide Temperature Range

GenTegra DNA stabilizes DNA samples for a wide temperature range, protecting samples for days or even weeks while in transport.

Easy Recovery

Samples can be easily recovered after transportation. Simply add water to recover 100% of the sample and use for any downstream application.


Once samples are recovered, they can be used for downstream applications like transfections, quantitative PCR, and gene expression.
