The SalivaGene Collector utilizes a freeze-dried stabilization buffer that stabilizes genomic and bacterial DNA for 12 months at room temperature. The lyophilized buffer is dissolved by the moisture of the sample and thereby activates its DNA stabilizing properties. This reduces electricity costs associated with refrigeration, freezing, and temperature-controlled shipping. The SalivaGene Collector is designed to be user-friendly, with clear instructions and simple, intuitive, and non-invasive sample collection. Approx. 2 ml of saliva must be given per sample.

Sample volume deviations of ± 0.5 ml can be tolerated. In general, the sample should be given up to the filling line which is approximately 2 ml.
With the PSP® SalivaGene DNA Kit the total DNA conc. can be up to 10 µg.
With the SalivaGene Collector samples can be stored at room temperature for up to 12 months. If samples need to be stored for longer, they also can be frozen.
