The CE marked, IVD certified swabs enable Human DNA collection and DNA for Veterinary use without the need for blood collection

Buccal swab sampling offers a viable alternative to blood collection and together with the Isohelix range of DNA Isolation and Stabilisation kits enables high yields of pure, intact DNA to be collected easily and quickly from the mouth.

Isohelix swabs are suitable for both human and veterinary use and offer significant advantages over other mouth swab designs in terms of efficiency of cell collection by the unique swab matrix, which combined with a quick release surface, maximises yields of DNA.

Swab batches are gamma treated and routinely tested for human DNA contamination.
