Principle

Collection Devices

EasiCollect Plus (Premium buccal sample collection device)

  • Consistent and improved collection

Updated EasiCollect Plus design provides uniform and consistent buccal sample collection with 98% first pass success rate in field trials and laboratory models. and transfer to FTA paper.

  • Sample visualization

The indicating and framed FTA Card (EasiCollect Plus Card) changes color from pink to white upon sample addition.

  • FTA technology

FTA chemistry lyses cells on contact, denatures proteins, and protects DNA from degradation. DNA remains tightly bound to the FTA Card while proteins and inhibitors are washed away.

  • Flexible processing

Once dried, the FTA Card can be removed from the EasiCollect Plus device and punched by using, for example:

         QIAGEN’s UniCore Punches for manual processing;

          BSD600 Ascent Punch Instrument (Cat No./ID: WB120036) for semi automated processing;

          QIAGEN's STAR Q Punch AS (Cat No./ID: 9002700), Hamilton Robotics' easyPunch automation for automated processing.

  • Simple analysis

Allows conventional and direct STR amplification using e.g. QIAGEN’s Investigator 24plex GO! or Investigator IDplex GO! kits.

  • DNA archiving

Enables long-term archiving of DNA reference samples at room temperature with over 20 years of blood and 12 years of buccal real-time data support. The slim design of the card enables high-capacity storage.

EasiCollect (Buccal sample collection device)
Please note: There is a new improved version of this product, EasiCollect Plus (Cat No./ID: WB120472).

  • Easy collection

Easy sample transfer to a removable and framed 2 x 2 inch (5 x 5 cm) Indicating FTA Card (EasiCollect Card).

About Whatman FTA cards and kits

FTA technology consists of a proprietary chemically coated matrix that effectively lyses cells on contact, denatures proteins and captures DNA onto the card matrix. The captured DNA is then protected from degradation during long-term room temperature storage.

  • Leading global DNA collection and preservation tools

Whatman FTA cards are one of the leading DNA collection and preservation tools used globally in forensic applications. More than 200 publications demonstrate the uses and benefits of FTA within the scientific community, and more than 50 countries around the world rely on FTA for archiving of DNA from both blood and buccal cell samples.

  • Manufactured to ISO 9001:2008 standards

A downloadable demographics form can be edited to include information about the collection agency. The Whatman FTA cards and FTA kits are manufactured to ISO 9001:2008 standards to ensure quality.
