Biomatrica/Qiagen QIAsafe DNA blood products

Friday, 20 November, 2009 | Supplied by: QIAGEN Pty Ltd



Biomatrica and Qiagen have launched QIAsafe DNA Blood Products, the first dry blood storage available on a matrix based on Biomatrica’s SampleMatrix technology.

The SampleMatrix technology significantly simplifies transport and storage of blood samples at room temperature by forming protective seals around DNA.

This safe, long-term preservation of DNA in blood samples at room temperature is suitable for biobanks, research institutions and biotechnology companies looking to identify alternative storage systems due to increasing costs of current standard storage temperatures. Recovery of the sample is by simple hydration, followed by purification of DNA for use in downstream applications.

Traditional room temperature storage of blood samples via paper methods can result in relatively low yields of DNA. The QIAsafe DNA Blood Products allow for storage of blood samples on a matrix, which results in significantly higher yields when compared to conventional long-term room temperature storage methods.
