Isohelix 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.

MS Mini DNA Swabs have reduced dimensions and area compared to the SK swabs. The width of the swab has been decreased from 8mm to 6mm. This makes them ideal for sample collection in small mammals, invertebrates and other animals. Mini swabs include a breakpoint to quickly snap the swab head off the shaft. The breakpoint is lower than the SK swabs, allowing the mini swabs to be stored in smaller tubes. MS-01 mini swabs include a collection tube and cap.
