SafeCollect At-Home Sample Collection Kits

Sample Collection Designed Around User Experience for Self-Collection

Sample collection devices for simple, non-invasive at-home testing. SafeCollect’s patented tube features a safety seal that prevents users from spilling, ingesting, or being exposed to the stabilization solution. A unique safety seal is punctured after adding a sample to the tube, releasing the stabilization solution.

Easy Self-Collection Starts with SafeCollect

Powered by Proven DNA/RNA Shield Preservation Technology

SafeCollect™ devices are filled with Zymo Research’s proprietary DNA/RNA Shield™ stabilization solution that preserves DNA and RNA at ambient temperature for at least 30 days. Such preservation is not only economical but also vital when shipping samples where expensive dry ice and other cold shipping methods are not available or permitted. DNA/RNA Shield™ was the first 510(k) cleared transport medium for collection, preservation, and inactivation for SARS-CoV-2, which provides an additional layer of protection for those who come into direct contact with samples, including couriers and laboratory personnel.
