Ahlstrom-Munksjö GenSaverTM and GenSaverTM 2.0 specimen collection cards are specifically designed for collection and transport of microvolumes of biological samples and long-term preservation of DNA at ambient temperature.

DNA preserved on GenSaverTM and GenSaverTM 2.0 can be used even after 22 years of ambient storage to generate high quality STR and Next Generation Sequencing data.

Different solutions for different samples

The card design and printing are customizable to better accommodate our customers’ needs in terms of automation, color coding and barcoding. The two colors available are suitable for the collection of different kinds of biosamples:

  • White cards for the collection of easily identified samples such as whole blood.
  • Pink cards for the collection of clear samples such as saliva, buccal cells, urine, bacterial cells (from colonies, glycerol stocks or bacterial cultures), tissue lysate, liquid biopsy or purified DNA.

The 96-well card format finds application when repetitive dispensing is required in the clinical, hospital, biological, chemical, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, veterinary and forensic fields.
