Sterile Individually Wrapped Swabs

These Sterile Individually Wrapped Swabs are intended for use with Norgen’s Saliva Collection and Preservation Devices. These devices are available as part of Norgen’s Saliva DNA Collection, Preservation and Isolation Kit (Cat# RU35700) and Norgen’s Saliva DNA Collection and Preservation Devices (50) (Cat# RU49000). These sterile swabs are individually wrapped for high safety and sterility. The foam tip provides fast collection and easy specimen release.  Saliva is collected from the cheek by placing the foam tip of the swab into the check pouch and rotating the swab head to collect as much saliva as possible. Next, the swab is placed into the Collection Tube of the device and the foam tip of the swab is then pressed against the inside of the Collection Tube in order to release the collected saliva. This process is repeated until 2 mL of saliva has been collected into the Collection Tube. Next, the Saliva DNA Preservative is then added to the saliva in the Collection Tube. Saliva DNA can be isolated from the preserved saliva by either alcohol precipitation using Norgen’s Saliva DNA Collection, Preservation and Isolation Kit (Cat# RU35700) or via spin-column chromatography using Norgen’s Saliva DNA Isolation Kit (Cat# RU45400). These swabs can also be used to collect fresh saliva for immediate processing using Norgen’s Saliva DNA Isolation Kit (Cat# RU45400). These swabs are ideal for collecting saliva samples for epidemiological and population studies.
