PD-PCN-00042: ORAcollect•Dx, ORAcollect•Dna and ORAcollect for pediatrics for collection of human DNA (OCD-100, OCD-100A, OCR-100 and OC-175). Changes to the digit serial number and digit product code. Click to read the pdf document.
PD-PCN-00041: The Oragene•RNA (RE-100) vial collection kit is changing to a tube format which optimizes collection, transport and extraction. As such, the RE-100 vial format is no longer available for sale. The new Oragene•RNA mailable tube format is currently available and is designed to yield equivalent RNA results to the original RE-100 vial format.
PD-PCN-00039: Oragene•DNA (OG-250) and Oragene•DISCOVER (OGR-250) disc format pre-collection storage instructions are changing from 15°C – 30°C to 15°C – 25°C. Additionally, the product shelf-life is changing from 30 months to 24 months from date of manufacture.
PD-PCN-00032: Based upon user feedback and DNA Genotek’s continued commitment to manufacturing easy-to-use products, we have made the human readable barcode larger and easier to read on our ORAcollect®•DNA product.
PD-PCN-00030: Based upon user feedback and DNA Genotek’s continued commitment to manufacturing easy-to-use products, we have made the human readable barcode larger and easier to read on our ORAcollect® for pediatrics product.
PD-PCN-00020: DNA Genotek will be changing the brand name and labelling of our OMNIgene•DISCOVER products to OMNIgene•ORAL. Note that the product catalog numbers will remain the same (OM-501 and OM-505).
PD-PCN-00018: Based upon user feedback and DNA Genotek’s continued commitment to quality, DNA Genotek has made improvements to our tube label. We will be aligning the date format with international standards, growing the label whitespace panel and repositioning label content to create additional writable whitespace. Additionally, the height of the machine readable barcode will be standardized to 7 mm and the font size on the human readable portion of the barcode will increase, making it easier to read.
PD-PCN-00016: Based upon user feedback, DNA Genotek has made an improvement to the OMNIgene•GUT (OMR-200) product. The wooden stick in the collection kit will be replaced with a plastic spatula. This replacement is an esthetic improvement and does not affect the overall performance of the kit.
PD-PCN-00014: Based upon user feedback, DNA Genotek has made improvements to our ORAcollect DNA (OCR-100) product. We will be changing the double-ended cap and the collection tube dimensions to improve kit handling and compatibility with liquid automation platforms.
PD-PCN-00012: DNA Genotek is standardizing their animal products into one platform, therefore Oragene®•ANIMAL (OA-400) will be discontinued and the Performagene•LIVESTOCK (PG-100) name will change to PERFORMAgene.
PD-PCN-00010: DNA Genotek will continue to provide prepIT•L2P manual purification reagents complementary with purchases of Oragene and/or ORAcollect DNA collection product lines until August 31, 2011. Orders placed after this date will be subject to individual product charges.
