"By using HOMIM (Human Oral Microbe Identification Microarray), we demonstrated that saliva samples stored in OMNIgene•DISCOVER were indeed stabilized for at least 3 weeks, even at 37° Celsius. This is outstanding! Consequently, I think OMNIgene•DISCOVER would be very useful for remote collections alleviating the need for a -80° freezer or, for that matter, any refrigeration to preserve samples. This is an incredible benefit for any investigator who is interested in preserving precious clinical samples, especially for use with molecular analyses of genomic material."

Collect reliable and superior samples for your microbial and infectious disease research.

As microbiology research moves from traditional culture based techniques to cutting edge molecular assays, reliable nucleic acid sample stabilization becomes essential. To add weight to the results of research, the screening and collection of larger sample numbers is vital. A non-invasive sample collection method is an integral component of scaling the number of participants in research studies. Saliva is increasingly being shown to be a "window" on the microbiology of the human body.

OMNIgene®•DISCOVER:

The OMNIgene•DISCOVER sample collection product line provides an all-in-one system for the collection, stabilization, and transportation of microbial nucleic acids from saliva.

  • Painless, non-invasive sample collection
  • High quality nucleic acids
  • Ideal for field collection as DNA and RNA samples are stable at ambient temperature for months, reducing transportation and storage cost and complexity
  • Sample stabilized at time of collection
  • Easy collection and transport
  • Increase efficiency, minimize sample handling and reduce handling errors with a compatible format for high throughput processing
  • Eliminates the need for cold chain transport

OMNIgene•DISCOVER is for research use only, not for use in diagnostic procedures.
