Isohelix Dri-Capsules were developed to quickly and efficiently dry SK-1S swabs to maintain complete molecular biology integrity while avoiding DNA cross contamination risks. The capsules are highly efficient with a non-toxic coating containing a high-grade silica gel with a color indicator to display continued active stabilization.  

To use, simply insert the capsule into the 5ml collection tube, included with each SK-1S swab, along with the used swab and seal the tube securely with the cap provided. Long term stability studies show that DNA samples on SK-1S swabs stored with Isohelix Dri-Capsules are stabilized for over 3 years

All components are rigorously batch and DNA tested to defined and stringent quality standards prior to assembly within the highest specification multi-laminate moisture barrier foil. This maintains and guarantees the Dri-Capsules’ performance over the long term and in varying temperatures and humidities.

Dri-Capsules can also be purchased as a kit with 50 SK-1S swabs (see SGC-50/SK1).


Figure 1: Long term stability studies show that the stability of DNA samples on SK-1S swabs stored with Isohelix Dri-Capsules is maintained over a period of at least 3 years. The ongoing study is expected to confirm an increased period of stabilization well in excess of the 3 years tested so far.

For a demonstration on how to use the Dri-Capsules, watch the Video Protocol.
