QIAGEN's New Product Line, QIAsafe(R) DNA Blood, has Been Co-Developed With Biomatrica and is Based on Biomatrica's SampleMatrix(R) Technology
Date:9/9/2009

rature storage of blood samples via paper methods can result in relatively low yields of DNA. The QIAsafe DNA Blood products allow for storage of blood samples on a matrix, which results in significantly higher yields when compared to conventional long-term room temperature storage methods."

QIAsafe DNA Blood is the result of an established strategic partnership between the two companies entered into in May 2007. The agreement provides QIAGEN with the rights to marketing and distribution of QIAsafe DNA and QIAsafe DNA Blood products manufactured by Biomatrica using the SampleMatrix room temperature DNA storage technology.

SampleMatrix is based on extremophile biology in which organisms are able to survive long-term in a state of anhydrobiosis (life without water) and later be revived by rehydration. Extremophiles such as tardigrades, also known as water bears, and brine shrimp are able to protect their DNA, RNA, proteins, membranes and cellular systems in a dried state for extended periods of time. Biomatrica's technology mimics the natural molecular mechanisms used by these organisms. The technology works by forming a thermo-stable barrier during the drying process to protect samples from degradation during storage at room temperature.

About Biomatrica(R), Inc.

Biomatrica (www.biomatrica.com) is a San Diego-based biostability company that provides innovative technologies for stabilizing, processing, storing and shipping biological samples at room temperature. The core technology is designed for use in preserving complex biological samples and assays and is based on the principles of anhydrobiosis ("life without water"), a natural mechanism that allows multicellular organisms to survive extreme environments. Biomatrica's current products stabilize DNA and RNA with no sample degradation, thus la
