Designed to enhance the performance of the Isohelix SK-1 swabs, the Dri-Capsules are specifically developed at Isohelix to quickly and efficiently dry the swabs without DNA cross contamination risks, yet maintaining complete molecular biology integrity. The capsules are highly efficient with a non-toxic coating containing a high grade silica gel with a color indicator to display continued active stabilization.
All components are rigorously batch and DNA tested to defined and stringent quality standards prior to assembly within the highest specification multi-laminate moisture barrier foil, which maintains and guarantees the Dri-Capsules performance over the long term and in varying temperatures and humidities.
- Long term stability at room temperature
- Reduces DNA cross contamination
- Non-toxic and inert coating, very easy to handle
- Ideal for remote and field sample collection
Long term stability studies show that the stability of DNA samples on SK1 swabs stored with Isohelix Dri-Capsules is maintained over a period of at least 3 years. The ongoing study is expected to confirm an increased period of stabilization well in excess of the 3 years tested so far.
