The SalivaGene Swab Comfort is designed to collect and stabilize DNA from human oral samples. The DNA of swab samples is stable for 6 months at room temperature in the stabilization buffer. This reduces electricity costs associated with refrigeration, freezing, and temperature-controlled shipping. After sample collection the swab tip is broken at the red breaking point into the tube. During sealing the swab tip is screwed into the lid and can be easily removed once the tube is reopened.
