Sample Protection and Storage

GenTegra-developed products include sample collection devices for a wide variety of applications including COVID-19 diagnostic testing, RNASeq for genomics and transcriptomics, DNA for forensic analysis from crime scenes, or whole blood for dried blood spot analysis and storage.  Sample stability enabled by GenTegra devices have a significant impact on outcomes and decisions in clinical, research and other applications. All products include Gentegra’s novel Active Chemical Protection™ (ACP) formulation which is designed to protect biological samples from degradation beginning at the point of collection through analysis and allows for storage at room temperature.

GenTegra Nucleic Acid Stabilization Products

Immediate and complete protection
directly from RNA extraction

RNAssure provides robust, reliable RNA protection against all RNases as well as exposure to oxidation. Maximum RNA protection is achieved by treating purified RNA samples with RNAssure as soon as they are isolated. With RNAssure, RNA can be protected even at room temperature, eliminating the concern that RNA may degrade during routine experimental protocols or due to catastrophic freezer failure. RNAssure easily integrates into extraction and purification kits from all major life science manufacturers. RNAssure protected samples can be used directly in downstream applications without the need for further purification.

GenTegra Nucleic Acid stabilization products provide unparalleled protection of purified RNA and DNA, eliminating the need for cold chain shipment and storage.
