These buccal swabs have been specifically designed to offer increased yields of high quality buccal cell and genomic DNA.  Buccal cell sampling offers a viable alternative to blood collection, and together with the Isohelix range of DNA Isolation and Stabilization kits, enables high yields of pure, intact DNA to be collected easily and quickly.  Our swabs are suitable for both human and veterinary use and offer significant advantages compared to other DNA swab designs in terms of efficiency of cell collection by the unique swab matrix, which in conjunction with a quick release surface maximizes DNA yields.  Swab batches are ethylene oxide treated and routinely tested for human DNA contamination.

Each SK-1S buccal swab is packaged with a 5ml plastic collection tube and cap. After the buccal sample is obtained, the swab is inserted in the tube and the shaft is broken off just above the swab head by gentle pressure at the score. The tube is then capped and ready to be transported to the lab for processing. SK-1S swabs are compatible with Isohelix Dri-Capsules for convenient sample stabilization.
