    The Thermo Scientific™ Bioservative™ sample stabilization system is specifically formulated to maintain cell viability and preserve nucleic acid targets (RNA/DNA) – without refrigeration or freezing, over extended periods of time. The result: samples that provide superb accuracy in molecular diagnostics, from the moment of collection.


    • Preserves specimens without refrigeration or freezing for 7 to 45 days (molecular up to 45 days and other microbiology up to 7 days)
    • Suppresses nuclease and protease activity to preserve viable nucleic acid targets (RNA/DNA)
    • Removes assay interferences by neutralizing enzymes and proteins that inhibit amplification
    • Maintains sample pH by minimizing lysis to enhance preservation of targets during transport and storage
    • Prolongs cell viability by slowing cellular metabolism and providing thermal protection
    • Maintains bacteriostasis by retarding reproduction and lysis
    • Improves amplification of DNA and RNA
    • Minimizes freeze and thaw damage to nucleic acids
    • Formulated for accurate qPCR and PCR analysis
    • Platform agnostic to allow for compatibility with qPCR, PCR, Microarrays, Flow Cytometry and Culture
    • Flexible for working with a broad range of cellular, bacterial and viral targets
    • Eliminates the need for specialized collection media for each different pathogen

    • Protecting, preserving and stabilizing targets for extended periods without refrigeration
    • Use with sample targets: DNA, RNA, gene transcripts, mammalian cells, bacteria and viruses
    • Aiding the detection and quantification of low prevalence targets
    • Cross-platform compatibility with qPCR, PCR, Microarrays, Flow Cytometry, microbiology culture and others
