Safely collect DNA samples from dried blood spots

Collect, store, and transport blood samples at ambient temperatures for at least 10 years

Collecting samples in a remote location can often be challenging, especially if the collection method requires the use of a cold chain to get the samples back to the laboratory. Paper collection cards offer a simple and convenient method of collecting samples while avoiding the hassles of a cold chain. Whether you’re collecting DNA, RNA or some other small molecule, GenTegra has a collection card for your application.
