Add to Cart:
The SGC-50/SK1 kit includes 50 SK-1S T-Swabs and 50 Dri-Capsules for efficient DNA collection and stabilization. 

SK-1S 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. The shaft has a break point near the swab head to easily snap off the swab head into the 5ml tube.

Dri-Capsules conveniently stabilize DNA on SK-1S swabs for over 3 years at room temperature. After obtaining the sample, the capsule is inserted into the 5ml collection tube along with the used swab head and the tube is sealed with the provided cap. The capsules have a non-toxic coating containing a high-grade silica gel with a color indicator to display continued active stabilization. 

For a demonstration of how to use the SK-1S swabs and Dri-Capsules, watch the Video Protocol.
