Whatman FTA Nucleic Acid Collection, Storage and Purification Cards: FTA PlantSaver
Collect, store, and transport DNA at room temperature
Manufacturer: Whatman WB120068
Patented FTA technology simplifies the isolation, storage, and processing of nucleic acids from biological sources including whole blood, buccal cells, and plant material. Sample is applied to the FTA card and allowed to dry; the cells are lysed on contact. The released DNA is captured, stabilized, and protected from nucleases, oxidation, and UV damage. DNA from blood stored at room temperature on FTA cards exhibits no loss in PCR efficiency after 22 years and counting. PlantSaver Cards capture a variety of plant DNA including transgenic species, and feature a laminated flap that allows the plant sample to be pressed into the FTA matrix without damaging the card.
- Capture nucleic acid in one easy step
- Captured nucleic acid is ready for downstream applications in less than 30 min.
- DNA collected on FTA Cards is stable for years at room temperature
- FTA Cards are stored at room temperature before and after sample application, reducing the need for laboratory freezers
- Suitable for virtually any cell type
- Indicating FTA Cards change color upon sample application to facilitate handling of colorless samples
- FTA Cards are available in a variety of configurations to meet application requirements
- Custom configurations are available on request
- Both indicating and non-indicating cards available
