The Fecal Swab Collection and Preservation System is designed for collection, ambient storage and transport of nucleic acids from stoll specimens. The Fecal Swab Collection and Preservation System tubes contain Norgen's Stool Preservative in liquid format. The user simply collects the specimen using the provided swab and then transfers the swab into the Stool Preservative.
The Stool Preservative prevents the growth of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria and fungi, and also inactivates viruses allowing the resulting non-infectious samples to be handled and shipped safely.
In addition, the Stool Preservative eliminates the need to immediately process or freeze samples and allows the samples to be shipped to centralized testing facilities at ambient temperatures. The components of the Stool Preservative allow samples to be stored at room temperature for over two years for DNA and 7 days for RNA.
