Saliva RNA Collection and Preservation Devices

Norgen’s Saliva RNA Collection and Preservation Devices are designed for 1) simple and non-invasive saliva collection and 2) preservation of RNA in saliva samples at ambient temperature. Each of the 50 Saliva RNA Collection and Preservation Devices consists of 3 components: (1) Saliva Collection Funnel and Collection Tube, (2) Collection Tube Cap, and (3) Norgen’s Saliva RNA Preservative contained within a sealed squeezable ampoule. Saliva samples are collected by spitting inside the Collection Funnel which has been assembled with the Collection Tube. After collecting the required volume of saliva the Collection Funnel is removed and the contents of the Preservative Ampoule are then added and mixed with the collected saliva. The Saliva Collection Tube is subsequently sent to the laboratory for RNA isolation and analysis. RNA can be isolated from the preserved saliva samples using Norgen’s Saliva/Swab RNA Purification Kits (Cat# 69100, 69300). Each of Norgen’s Collection Tubes is labeled with a unique serial number that can be used for secure and anonymous tracking of the sample. The Saliva RNA in preserved samples is stable for up to 2 months at room temperature. This kit is ideal for collecting and preserving RNA samples for epidemiological and population studies.

SALIVA RNA PRESERVATIVE

Norgen’s Saliva RNA Preservative is an aqueous storage buffer designed for rapid cellular lysis and subsequent preservation of RNA from fresh specimens. The buffer eliminates the need to immediately process or freeze samples and allows the samples to be shipped to centralized testing facilities at ambient temperature. The components of the buffer allow samples to be stored for up to 2 months at room temperature.

NUCLEIC ACID ISOLATION FROM PRESERVATIVE

Saliva RNA can be isolated from the preserved saliva samples using Norgen’s Saliva/Swab RNA Purification Kits (Cat# 69100, 69300).
