Swabs for buccal DNA extraction
Isohelix Buccal Swabs has been specifically designed to give increased yields of high quality buccal cell and genomic DNA. Buccal cell sampling offers a viable alternative to blood collection and, together with the Isohelix range of DNA Isolation and Stabilisation kits, enables high yields of pure, intact DNA to be collected easily and quickly.
Isohelix swabs are suitable for both human and veterinary use and offer significant advantages over other swab designs in terms of efficiency of cell collection by the unique swab matrix, which combined with a quick release surface, maximizes yields of DNA.
Swab batches are ethylene oxide treated and routinely tested for human DNA contamination.
Isohelix also offers a "mini" version of these swabs (MS swabs), that use exactly the same matrix material as the SK swabs so there is significant history of use but have reduced dimensions and area. The width of the swab has been reduced from 8 mm to 6 mm and employs a slightly different shaft attachment enabling a DNA yield close to the SK swabs. This allows the sampling of smaller areas, for example in rodents.
This product line is complemented with Isohelix stabilization and extraction kits.
