We offer a large variety of products to meet your requirements for sample collection, transportation, and storage. Our Whatman FTA/FTA Elute cards provide simple solutions to collect, preserve, and purify biological samples at room temperature for downstream DNA analysis. FTA DMPK-A, FTA DMPK-B, and FTA DMPK-C cards are ideal media for dried blood spot (DBS) microvolume sampling and are widely used in drug metabolism (DM), pharmacokinetic (PK), and toxicokinetic (TK) studies. 903 cards have a long history in newborn screening.

Convenient collection products and reliable solutions for transportation and preservation of biological samples are essential in a wide range of forensic, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, research, and screening applications. Biological samples include for examples blood, buccal, tissue, plant, and cultured cell samples as well as microorganisms. DNA and other biomolecules collected with these products may, after simple purification steps, be used for many types of downstream analyses.

  • 903 Sample Collection Cards

    903 specimen collection paper from GE Healthcare is a high-quality cellulose fiber paper used by healthcare professionals to collect blood samples, providing an efficient method for collection and transport. The cards, which are widely used in neonatal screening programs and other diagnostics applications, are routinely customized to unique specifications and can be included in a procedure pack containing all the necessary components for efficient sample collection.

    903 products for neonatal screening performance comply with CLSI LA4-A5 standard US FDA Class II Medical Devices and are CE marked in Europe as in vitro diagnostic medical devices, as required by the IVD Directive 98/79/EC. All products are manufactured under controls compliant with the FDA Quality System Regulations and ISO 13485:2003.

    903 products also enable blood sample collection for other applications and are certified as US FDA Class II Medical Devices and CE marked for use by healthcare professionals.

  • FTA/FTA Elute Sample Collection Cards and Kits

    We offer FTA cards and FTA Elute cards for convenient sample collection and purification. Following simple purification steps, DNA remains bound to the matrix of FTA cards, which can then be used directly for downstream applications. With FTA Elute cards, DNA will be eluted into water after purification. The eluted DNA can be used for quantitative DNA analysis.

    FTA cards and FTA Elute cards utilize patented Whatman technology that simplifies collection, transportation, and storage of biological samples and processing of nucleic acids at room temperature. Simply apply your sample to the FTA card or FTA Elute card, which contains chemicals that lyse cells, denature proteins, and protect nucleic acids from nucleases. The released nucleic acids are entrapped and preserved in the fibers of the matrix

  • Sample Punching

    We offer Uni-Core and Micro-punch manual punches and the semi-automated e-Core punch.

    Our punching products are designed for use with Whatman FTA and FTA Elute products and provide a variety of punch sizes and low to medium level of throughput capability.

  • Swabs and Accessories

    We offer OmniSwab for buccal and saliva samples collection, Foam Applicator for collecting and transferring buccal sample to Indicating FTA cards, and FTA Purification Reagent for purifying DNA on FTA cards. Our Multi-Barrier Pouches and desiccant maintain sample integrity during archiving and transporting.

    Accessories for sample collection provide convenience for your sample collection, help maintain sample integrity and security during archiving and transporting, and ensure high-quality DNA for downstream analyses.
