Transplant Centers and Marrow Donor Registries

The success of Transplant Centers and Marrow Donor Registries relies on finding a successful match as quickly as possible from as many potential donors as possible. Easy-to-use and non-invasive collection is beneficial for growing marrow donor registries and obtaining samples from family members for transplant centers. Obtaining high quality reliable samples is key to performing on a wide range of downstream HLA typing technologies.

Use Oragene®•Dx for proven collection, stabilization and transportation of DNA from saliva that will improve access to potential donors, maximize compliance, and meet your downstream HLA typing needs.

Features

  • First and only saliva DNA collection and stabilization device to receive FDA 510(k) clearance†
  • Painless, non-invasive collection
  • Easy collection, transportation, and storage facilitates sample handling from potential family members and unrelated donors, regardless of geographic location
    • Collect samples anywhere via the mail or at recruitment events
    • Samples can be exposed to ambient temperatures (-20 to 50C) for collection and transport
    • Saliva samples are stable for long-term room temperature storage
    • Solution is bacteriostatic
  • Improve processing efficiency with a liquid sample and tube format that seamlessly integrates with automated platforms or facilitates DNA extraction in manual environments

DNA Genotek was proud to sponsor the 31st Current Course on Immunogenetics and the 27th Current Course on Molecular Genetics held July 30th – August 10th. The event was organized by the Department of Immunology and Immunogenetics of Instituto de Diagnostico y Referencia Epidemiologicos, Secretary of Health (InDRE), Mexico City. Dr. Clara Gorodezky, director of the department, and her team organized and hosted 95 participants for two weeks of lectures and laboratory practices. Participants used the Oragene Self Collection kits for non-invasive, reliable self-collection of DNA samples from saliva whereby a variety of protocols were used to extract the DNA for molecular applications, such as HLA typing. Congratulations to Dr. Gorodezky and her team in organizing such a successful and educational workshop.

Securing FDA 510(k) clearance of Oragene•Dx ensures that clinical diagnostic test providers can now experience the benefits of Oragene using a family of products cleared for use by the FDA. This FDA clearance will provide added flexibility to diagnostic customers who wish to offer their patients the non-invasive, reliable and easy-to-use Oragene•Dx saliva sample collection device as an alternative to invasive blood collection. In addition, the FDA 510(k) clearance of Oragene•Dx will enable molecular diagnostic test manufacturers to streamline their own regulatory submissions and potentially broaden market accessibility for their genetic tests.

For in vitro diagnostic use. For collection of human DNA.

† FDA cleared for in vitro diagnostic use with the eSensor® Warfarin Sensitivity Saliva Test.
