Mini Swabs

Isohelix buccal swabs have been specifically designed to offer increased yields of high quality buccal cell and genomic DNA and all species of RNA.

Buccal cell sampling offers a viable alternative to blood collection, and together with the Isohelix range of Isolation and Stabilization kits, enables high yields of pure, intact DNA and RNA to be collected easily and quickly. Our swabs are suitable for both human and veterinary use. The swab design offers significant advantages in efficiency of cell collection with the unique swab matrix, which in combination with a quick release surface maximizes DNA and RNA yields. Swab batches are ethylene oxide treated and routinely tested for human contamination.

MS Mini DNA Swabs have reduced dimensions and area compared to the SK swabs. The width of the swab has been decreased from 8mm to 6mm. This makes them ideal for sample collection in small mammals, invertebrates and other animals. Mini swabs include a breakpoint to quickly snap the swab head off the shaft. The breakpoint is lower than the SK swabs, allowing the mini swabs to be stored in smaller tubes. MS-01 mini swabs include a collection tube and cap.
