Collection Systems

GeneSpector Innovations provides solutions for collection of biological samples via nasopharyngeal swabs and from saliva for various applications.

viRNAtrap Collection Tube is an innovative solution for storing and transport of nasopharyngeal swabs. The solution inactivates any potentially infectious agents—such as viruses—providing safe handling for the laboratory personnel and stabilizes sensitive analytes—such as nucleic acids—which can be stored at laboratory temperature for days without compromising analytical results.

Examples of use:

  • Detection of SARS-CoV-2
  • Detection of predictive biomarker for assessment of severity of infectious diseases
  • Detection of any future nucleic-acid-based biomarkers
  • NGS diagnostics

Salivette Collection Tube system is an easy-to-use method for collection of saliva samples proven to be tolerated also by children. It was specifically designed to minimize the risk of contamination of patient’s surroundings during sampling.

Examples of use:

  • Detection of SARS-CoV-2
  • Diagnostics of bacterial and viral infections
  • NGS diagnostics

Both systems for sample collection are currently commercially available and compatible with majority of isolation or extraction systems on the market.
