The MicroCollect™ oral collection and preservation device is designed to collect and preserve oral cell or microbial communities in the mouth. The MicroCollect™ Oral Cell Collection and Preservation Device is a user-friendly and ready-to-use method that brings participant comfort and interference-free results for a range of research and diagnostic applications, such as biochemical testing, molecular diagnosis, microbiome profile analysis, etc.
Each kit contains two sets of swab and collection tube containing preservation reagent, which is convenient for two collections. This device using nylon flocking swab which is superior to traditional fiber swab, can maximize the collection and release of the oral specimen. The indentation on the head of the swab makes the swab easy to break after sampling, while traditional swabs need scissors to shear, which may introduce contamination. The preservative solution can ensure cell integrity and the physical-chemical integrity of DNA during long-time storage or transportation. This validated device can provide confidence in the accuracy of the results.
Each MicroCollect™ Oral Cell Collection and Preservation Device includes two sets of swab and collection tube containing preservation reagent. The instructions for use are as follows:
Samples collected can be preserved for a long time at -20°C or -80°C. Repeated freezing and thawing should be avoided during storage and transportation.
