Isohelix specialize in the development and manufacture of innovative high quality DNA Sampling and Purification products for the Life Science Research, Molecular Diagnostics and Forensic markets. The product include DNA Swabs, DNA Saliva Collection devices and many DNA Isolation, Stabilization and associated kits.

GeneFix Saliva DNA Collection Device

GeneFix is an easy to use DNA saliva collection device that stabilizes DNA long term in 2mL and now the latest 1mL saliva sample options. The collector is pre-filled and has a simple screw-on funnel for simple saliva delivery directly into the non-toxic stabilization buffer. The saliva collection tube clearly indicates the volume of saliva required after which the funnel is removed and cap replaced. Various tube options are now available for both manual and HT or Automated Rackable formats. The unique funnel design prevents flow back and can also be used with our new assisted option using foam swabs, and the device is fully specified for sample transport and storage.

GeneFix Saliva Isolation Kit

A number of different isolation kits was developed based around alternative chemistry, to optimise the key requirements of purity, yield and ease of use. Each individual isolation method has been specifically designed to maximise one key outcome that is of most importance to a particular application or researcher. By offering a number of choices, Isohelix allows their users to select a kit that is most suitable to their downstream process which in turn improves the results that they can expect from their application or test.

Buccal Swab

The Isohelix range of DNA Buccal Swabs has been specifically designed to give increased yields of high quality buccal cell and genomic DNA. Buccal cell sampling offers a viable alternative to blood collection and together with the Isohelix range of DNA Isolation and Stabilization kits, enables high yields of pure, intact DNA to be collected easily and quickly.

Isohelix DNA swabs are suitable for both human and veterinary use and offer significant advantages over other DNA swab designs in terms of efficiency of cell collection by the unique swab matrix, which combined with a quick release surface, maximizes yields of DNA, Swab batches are ethylene oxide treated and routinely tested for human DNA contamination.
