Zymo Research offers a wide range of sample collection devices that are tailored to the needs of scientists in the lab and out in the field, including specific collection devices and reagent for the collection of stool samples. The DNA/RNA Shield reagent inactivates infectious agents and ensures the genetic integrity and microbiomic profile of the sample remains intact during transport and storage.
DNA/RNA Shield Faecal Collection tubes (ZY-R1101) are designed for the collection and preservation of nucleic acids from stool specimens. These stool collection tubes take a microbial snapshot of a sample while inactivating viruses making samples safe and ready for transport. Samples stored in the these stool collection tubes are stable at ambient temperature, and can be frozen for longer-term storage. Simply collect a spoonful of the specimen into the stool collection tubes prefilled with preservative and shake vigorously to ensure proper stabilization.
Faeces Catcher (ZY-R1101-1-10) is a strip of paper that fits onto any toilet seat. It allows for an easy method to collect fecal samples for further testing. The Feces Catcher is a great addition to DNA/RNA Shield Fecal Collection Tubes, Swab tubes, and Lysis tubes.
DNA/RNA Shield reagent (ZY-R1100-50/250 and ZY-R1200-25/125) is a DNA and RNA stabilization solution for nucleic acids in any biological sample. This DNA and RNA stabilization solution preserves the genetic integrity and expression profiles of samples at ambient temperatures and completely inactivates infectious agents (viruses, bacteria, fungi, & parasites). The unique DNA and RNA stabilization solution also prevents degradation from freeze-thaw cycling and unexpected freezer failures.
