The Isohelix BuccalFix range of stabilizing buffers are designed to completely stabilize the DNA in samples from DNA buccal swabs by inhibiting all enzymatic and microbial activity that occurs following any buccal sampling.
The DNA is fully stabilized with the structure and integrity of the DNA being fully maintained for further downstream processing applications. Once stabilized the DNA can be stored in the BuccalFix at Room Temperature for periods in excess of 2 years, and then can be easily processed for DNA isolation by the addition of Proteinase K and subsequent isolation steps. The BuccalFix buffers are offered in bulk, as well as pre-filled into various tube formats to suit both manual and more automated applications where 1D and 2D bar coding, and auto de-cap options are valuable. Additionally, the new MS mini swabs will fit into the smaller tubes where 96 tube racking is crucial.
