Biomatrica Launches DNAgard® Blood and DNAstable Blood for Stabilization, Storage and Shipping of Whole Blood at Room Temperature
Date:9/22/2010

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomatrica Inc., the leader in room temperature biological sample stabilization, today announced the release of DNAgard® Blood and DNAstable® Blood.

DNAgard® Blood is a new addition to the "Gard" product line for the stabilization and shipping of whole blood at ambient temperatures. The DNAgard® Blood product is based on a completely novel stabilization chemistry (patent pending) and expands Biomatrica's core technology to the stabilization of patient blood samples (up to 10ml) to be used for genetic analysis. DNAgard® Blood is designed to support the pre-analytics phase (sample collection and shipping) of biomedical research, biobanking & biorepositories, forensics as well as the fast growing molecular diagnostic markets.  

With the release of DNAgard Blood, whole blood samples (from 1 microliter to 10 milliliters) can be conveniently shipped and/or stored in a liquid format for 3 months at ambient room temperature prior to DNA extraction. This represents the longest storage time point for an ambient condition stabilization of whole blood DNA on the market. In addition, shipping temperatures of blood samples stabilized by DNAgard Blood can range up to 45degC without any impact on the DNA quality or yield.

"DNAgard Blood provides the longest room temperature preservation of DNA in whole blood," said Rolf Muller, Ph.D., Biomatrica's Chief Scientific Officer and co-founder. "Researchers can now easily, safely and cost effectively transport large volumes of blood samples from point of care collection sites to the lab for subsequent analysis without risk of sample quality diminishing. Room temperature based biostability reagents offer a very economical, eco-friendly solution to biological sample preservation, transport and storage, thereby offering a paradigm shift from traditional cold-freezing methods."

DNAgard Blood will begin shipping to customers starting on Sept 30, 2010.

DNAstable® Blood provides long-term stabilization and storage for unextracted DNA in whole blood or buffy coat samples at ambient room temperature. After long-term storage, high yield and quality DNA can be extracted and the purified sample is ready to use for all downstream analysis such as genotyping and whole genome DNA sequencing. The product is offered as a dry matrix formulation in tubes, 48-well plates, or custom formats.

About Biomatrica® Inc.

Biomatrica (www.biomatrica.com) is a San Diego-based biostability company that provides innovative technologies for stabilizing, processing, storing, shipping and assaying biological samples at room temperature. The core 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 preserving sample integrity while reducing laboratory reliance on freezers and shipping costs. Biomatrica products are used in laboratories performing life science research, from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to academic research and forensics laboratories. Custom services to stabilize additional sample types such as proteins are also available. Biomatrica also offers SampleWare® software, an easy-to-use, customizable laboratory management database that provides scientists with the means to store and organize their sample data, and directly supports samples stabilized by Biomatrica technology. For more information about the SampleMatrix technology and the Biomatrica products utilizing this technology platform (DNAstable®, DNAstable LD, DNAstable Blood, DNAgard® Tissue and DNAgard® Blood for DNA, RNAstable® and RNAconcentrator for RNA, and Clonestab and Clonestable® for bacterial DNA), visit: http://www.biomatrica.com/.
