DNA/RNA Shield SafeCollect Swab Collection Kit
R1160-E / R1161-E / R1160 / R1161
- User-friendly, spill-free design allows for safe, convenient collection of swab samples. Ideal for at-home self collection applications.
- Completely inactivates harmful pathogens at the point of collection, for worry-free transport and downstream analysis.
- Stabilizes the DNA and RNA in a sample for transport/storage without the need for cold-chain.
The DNA/RNA Shield SafeCollect Swab Collection Kit is a user-friendly collection kit for stabilizing the nucleic acid content of samples collected with a swab. DNA/RNA Shield completely inactivates harmful pathogens in the sample, and stabilizes the RNA in a sample for up to 30 days at room temperature. The SafeCollect design eliminates the risk of spilling the stabilization reagent during use, and is ideal for applications that require at-home self collection.

Q1: What is the shelf life of the kit?
Q2: What sample types is the kit compatible with?
Q3: What purification kits can be used with this kit?
Refer to recommended purification kits
Q4: How does SafeCollect work?
The SafeCollect design seals the stabilizing reagent behind a pierceable safety seal. The tube prevents spillage or user contact during the use of the device, only releasing the reagent when the swab is placed into the tube.
Q5: Is the SafeCollect device compatible with my downstream molecular process?
The SafeCollect devices are filled with DNA/RNA Shield, which is compatible with most commercially available DNA/RNA extraction/analysis workflows. DNA/RNA Shield is an Inactivating Transport Medium (ITM) and a recipient of a 510(k). For further information on product use, please refer to this link or contact Zymo Research's Technical Support Team.
Q6: Is DNA/RNA ShieldTM compatible with bleach (sodium hypochlorite)?
Avoid mixing the reagent and bleach (sodium hypochlorite) or other strong oxidizing agents and acids. Clean up any accidental spills with water first.
Q7: Can I still use DNA/RNA Shield if a precipitate has formed?
This can happen on occasion due to transport or storage at lower temperatures. The reagent functionality is not affected; however, the precipitate can be resolved by heating the reagent to >37 °C.
Q8: Can the swab be submerged prior to collecting?
For any biological sample collection (nasal, throat, etc.), use a sterile swab for collection and then deposit it into DNA/RNA Shield. For application-specific questions, please reach out to technical support.
