The IBI Saliva Collection Kit is designed to easily capture and store saliva samples deposited directly from patients.
The IBI Saliva Collection kit (Model numbers SK-300 thru SK-350) are designed to easily capture and store saliva samples deposited directly from patients. These kits have been optimized for collecting saliva specimens meant for use in RNA extraction procedures such as those used for COVID-19 and other viral diagnostic/detection procedures.
Kit includes a funnel that easily attaches to the included 12ml collection tube. The label on the collection tube contains a bar code and a line indicating the level at which saliva needs to be deposited. This kit is designed for high throughput automated liquid handling systems. Detailed instructions on use are also included in the kit.
IBI Saliva Collection Kits are factory packaged and ready for use. They are available in a wide range of quantities including a single kit, 25 and 50 packs.
IBI provides a clear, sealable bag to serve as a barrier in preventing contamination and leaks during storage and transport. Saliva samples are much more cost-effective to ship than blood samples; The DNA in the saliva sample is stable at room temperature for several days, but suggested storage is at 4°C for up to a month until DNA extraction can be performed.
A DNA Extraction Protocol is included with the IBI Saliva Collection Kit Protocol. The simple protocol typically yields 100µg of DNA from a 2mL saliva specimen. The resulting DNA is suitable for nearly all downstream applications and optimized for epigenetic analyses, i.e. Smoke Signature™. Smoke Signature™ Assay, developed by Behavioral Diagnostics, Inc. (BDI), is a new epigenetic test for quantifying cigarette smoking.
This kit is optimized for use in epigenetic studies.
