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
