LDT workflow

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.

Sample collection and stabilization for many sample types

QIAGEN offers PAXgene reagents for convenient, room-temperature stabilization of DNA, ccfDNA, RNA and protein to help you overcome the challenges associated with sample collection and sample stabilization, giving you confidence in your 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.

QIAGEN purification systems purify top-quality nucleic acids from nearly all sample materials and collection devices as well as from a wide range of sample quality. QIAGEN has developed a portfolio of instruments that are ideally suited to the kind of rigorous extraction you need to be sure you can develop your LDTs with the convenience, throughput and reliability you need.
