"I am very impressed with the performance of the Oragene/saliva samples collection technology. We obtained near perfect DNA human identification profile results under very demanding field conditions and as a bonus, reduced our usual extraction time by a factor of 8 and increased total DNA yields by a factor of 30. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it enthusiastically."

Collect superior samples for your research

All genetic research starts with the collection of DNA samples. A key challenge researchers typically face is determining how to maximize the number of samples they can collect and process given a finite amount of funding.

Blood samples are invasive to collect, impacting donor compliance. Blood is also complex and costly to ship, store and process. Buccal swabs provide a low quality and quantity of DNA, typically resulting in failed samples and a requirement to recollect, incurring additional cost, effort and time.

The Oragene sample collection product line provides an all-in-one system for the collection, stabilization and transportation of DNA from saliva.

Dr. Paul Arnold of the Hospital for Sick Children shares his research work into OCD in children using Oragene.

Features and Benefits

  • Increase the number of samples collected with higher donor compliance and lower cost per sample
  • Painless, non-invasive self-collection of high quality, high quantity DNA
  • Compact, reliable and robust design for collection via the post or in the field
  • Easily collect from young children or from those who cannot spit with the assisted collection kit
  • Extend reach to dispersed populations, increase the number of samples collected and reduce collection cost and complexity by sending kits via the mail – no special shipping or handling is required
  • Decrease cost and complexity of sample management and storage with long-term ambient temperature stability of samples
  • Increase sample processing efficiency with a compatible format for automated processing
  • Proven to perform as well as blood on a wide range of downstream applications, including microarrays
