GenTegra® Nucleic Acid Stabilization

Products

GenTegra®'s product portfolio is based on a suite of proprietary technologies for biopreservation, biobanking and in vitro Diagnostics (IVD):

GenTegra-RNA microplate in foil packaging

GenTegra-RNA: GenTegra-RNA is a water soluble chemical matrix that when added to purified RNA allows it to be air-dried to form a solid matrix which preserves RNA in the dry state. The protection is near perfect at the extremes of temperature (-80°C to +56°C) for >4yrs. The protection is unmatched when it comes to protecting against the high temperatures likely to be encountered when shipping samples. GenTegra-RNA is the only dry storage product that provides immediate protection against RNase activity and protects in all standard buffer systems. Studies prove conclusively that GenTegra-RNA begins protecting your RNA the instant it is added to the RNA solution and protects RNA long term better than storage at -20°C or -80°C and you save valuable freezer space. GenTegra-RNA has been protecting RNA since 2010 and is protected by an awarded US Patent. All GenTegra-RNA products have a expected shelf life of greater than 3-years at ambient temperatures.

GenTegra-DNA microplate in foil packaging

GenTegra-DNA: GenTegra-DNA is a water soluble chemical matrix that when added to purified DNA allows it to be air-dried to form a solid matrix which preserves DNA in the dry state. The protection is near perfect at the extremes of temperature (-80°C to +56°C) for >4yrs. GenTegra-DNA is especially valuable and effective at protecting against the high temperatures likely to be encountered when shipping samples. Studies prove conclusively that GenTegra-DNA protects DNA better than storage at -20°C or -80°C and you save valuable freezer space. GenTegra-DNA has been protecting DNA samples since 2009 and is protected by an awarded US Patent. All GenTegra-DNA products have a expected shelf life of greater than 3-years at ambient temperatures.

Collection papers for DNA, RNA and small molecules

Ahlstrom GenCollect™ Card
Ahlstrom GenCollect Card is an untreated research grade paper for the collection of dried blood spots, DBS, that can be used for small molecule analysis via Mass Spectroscopy without chemical interference. It is also convenient for fast and easy collection of DNA that will be processed soon after collection and not subjected to elevated temperatures.

Ahlstrom GenSaver™ Card
Ahlstrom GenSaver Card is the first new technology for collection and long term storage of DNA in DBS in more than 20 years. GenSaver cards use the highly regarded and proven GenTegra®-DNA Active Chemical Protection™ on superior Ahlstrom paper. When collecting DBS for ambient temperature transportation or long term DNA storage, this is the card of choice. It provides high levels of protection for the DNA during shipment and storage even at elevated temperatures. DBS on GenSaver cards can be used directly for PCR with no cleanup step required. A small punch can be added directly to the PCR mix without worrying about inhibition of the PCR reaction.

GenTegra GenProtect™ RNA Card
GenTegra GenProtect RNA is the first paper card designed to capture and protect RNA. Using the same Active Chemical Protection that protects purified RNA, GenTegra-RNA, has been re-formulated for a paper matrix allowing the easy field collection and protection of RNA in blood and other biological fluids. Once the blood spot is dried, the RNA is protected at ambient temperatures for up to 1-week. Protection includes the strong RNase inhibitor used in our highly regarded GenTegra-RNA. This new technology is currently in field testing phase. If you are interested in evaluating GenTegra GenProtect RNA cards, please contact GenTegra at orders@gentegra.com concerning availability. Quantities are available for testing.

GenTegra GenSolve™ high recovery of DNA from filter paper and FTA

GenSolve™ DNA COMPLETE: GenTegra’s GenSolve DNA COMPLETE combines all the advantages of the GenSolve extraction with fast convenient, column based, purification. This combination equals or exceeds the previous best result which were obtained using GenSolve and another supplier’s purification kit. GenSolve DNA COMPLETE offers more convenience as one kit provide everything needed and is priced to save you money as well.
GenSolve DNA COMPLETE recovers double stranded DNA from Dried Blood Spots, or other biological fluids dried on paper, regardless of storage time. DNA can be efficiently recovered at higher yield from treated paper, i.e. GenSaver™, FTA, and untreated paper, i.e. GenCollect™, Guthrie cards than when using other techniques. The GenSolve reagents coupled with recovery process enhances digestion of dried biological material and liberates more bound DNA from the paper. The resulting lysate, which is a mixture of DNA, cellular debris and FTA chemicals, if applicable, is then applied directly to the purification column. Subsequent washing steps separate the DNA from cellular material and a final elution step yields purified DNA ready for all genetic analysis techniques or for long term storage using GenTegra-DNA.

GenTegra GenSolve™ high recovery of DNA from filter paper and FTA

GenSolve™: The GenSolve kit recovers double stranded DNA from DBS, Dried Blood Spots, for subsequent purification. DNA is efficiently recovered at high yields from treated paper, i.e. GenSaver, FTA, and untreated paper, i.e. GenCollect and Guthrie cards.
The GenSolve reagents and recovery process enhances digestion of dried biological material and liberates more dsDNA from the paper. The resulting extract, which is a mixture of DNA, cellular debris and chemicals, if applicable, is then applied directly into a purification process. Subsequent washing steps during the purification separate the DNA from cellular material and a final elution step results in purified DNA ready for all genetic analysis techniques or for long term storage using GenTegra-DNA.
