Laboratory-Developed Testing Solutions
Sample collection and nucleic acid stabilization
Sub-optimal storage conditions and prolonged shipping times influence the quality and the integrity of human and pathogen RNA and DNA in the sample material. Sample stabilization during collection is a crucial first step in many molecular assays to avoid rapid degradation after collection, particularly for blood samples, and to ensure reliable interpretation of results.
Nucleic acid extraction is a critical part of IVD and laboratory-developed test workflows. The integrity, quality and quantity of the isolated nucleic acid has key influence on the reproducibility and reliability of the assay and the final interpretation.
