However, forensic customers were asking for a GenSaver card that provided a more positive and stronger antimicrobial property to better ensure the long-term satiability of the DBS samples. This desire and request is the basis of the GenSaver 2.0 card which is the GenSaver 1.0 card with the addition of a specific antimicrobial to the GenTegra-DNA chemistry on the GenSaver card. Long term testing has been underway for some time now to provide accelerated data to confirm high quality protection of the DNA for >20 years with the addition of this strong antimicrobial added. Data at every stage is showing the same high level of DNA protection with the added protection of a strong antimicrobial for additional long term protect while in storage. The cards still require storage in a controlled humidity but not the added antimicrobial acts as insurance against microbial contamination.
GenSaver 2.0 DNA cards are specifically enhanced to fit the needs of the forensic market. By adding an antimicrobial to the DNA protection formula of the GenSaver 1.0 card. The added antimicrobial provides additional protection for the often-contaminated samples obtained in a forensic collection. The addition of the antimicrobial makes the GenSaver 2.0 the best choice when concerned about possible microbial contamination of a DNA sample.
The GenSaver 2.0 card maintains it superior protection and ability to provide substantially high yields of DNA then the classic FTA card. GenSaver 2.0 should be the card of choice for all forensic sample collections.
