Biomatrica Products for the Forensics market

Biomatrica has developed a range of products for forensic scientists in biological evidence collection, transportation, storage, and processing. DNA extracts from different sample types (blood, semen, buccal, etc) can be preserved for long-time at room temperature with high quality and high yield. Our room temperature DNA stabilization reagents as well as assay enhancement products (see below) have been well validated by several forensic scientists and laboratories. A detailed listing of these validations and publications is also provided below.


DNAstable®

Stabilize store and ship purified DNA at room temperature
  • Long-term stabilization, storage and shipment of DNA at room temperature
  • High yield DNA recovery and use without further purification
  • Compatible with most downstream applications, e.g., PCR, sequencing, and microarrays
  • Available in a variety of compact formats, e.g., tubes, multi-well plates & custom.
  • Cost-effective, eco-friendly solution to freezer crawl and lab space management

DNAstable® enables you to preserve, store and ship your purified DNA samples at room temperature. Sample recovery is achieved within minutes by simply adding water or buffer to the matrix. Sample is ready for downstream analysis without need for any additional purification step.

DNA stabilization can be achieved in two formats:

Pre-dried in tubes or plates (DNAstable)

DNAstable Blood - 12 years at room temperature

Liquid-to-Dry storage format (DNAstable LD)
