GenTegra
Active Chemical Protection™ for RNA, DNA and Proteins at room temperature

GenTegra products protect nucleic acids while stored at ambient temperatures. Called Active Chemical Protection™ our patented chemical matrix provides protection against environmental damage that might destroy DNA and RNA. Our goal is to take the environment out of your concern when shipping or storing your samples. We also provide custom formulations for protecting a wide variety of biological molecules as well as OEM versions of our products that can enhance our partners product offerings while better serving their customers. Co-branding via our GenTegra-INSIDE or private labeling is also available.

Protection for Shipping RNA

RNA in GenTegra-RNA has protection from RNase damage and is ready for safe and secure shipping at ambient temperatures to a sequencing facility.

Protect & Archive DNA

Ambient storage of purified DNA using GenTegra-DNA leads to space and cost savings while at the same time reducing your risk of sample loss.

DNA, RNA and Protein
Sample Collection Cards

Sample collection cards offer a simple, convenient and low-cost option for collecting field samples and avoiding the difficulties and expense of a cold chain.

Forensic Sample Collection Cards

GenTegra offers a unique line of collection cards designed for use in forensic sample collection. These GenSaver™ 2.0 forensic sample collection cards provide additional protection against microbial contamination in collected samples.

Extracting DNA from Dried Blood Spot (DBS) cards

GenSolve DNA COMPLETE extraction kits purify more and better-quality DNA from Dry Blood Spots, DBS.

Automation friendly DBS collection

GenPlates are an automation friendly 398 well format for storing raw blood, buffy coat, saliva and other fluid biospecimens.

Gentegra-RNA

GenTegra-RNA is the best protection available for RNA. GenTegra-RNA is a water soluble, Active Chemical Protection™ that when added to RNA forms a protective matrix that preserves RNA in the dry state. The protection is near perfect at the extremes of temperature (-80°C to +72°C) for >4yrs. The protection is unmatched when it comes to protecting against the temperatures encountered when shipping RNA samples. Independent studies show GenTegra-RNA protection is better than shipping on dry ice. GenTegra-RNA is the only dry storage product that provides immediate protection against RNase activity before drying and allows the use of all standard buffer systems. Studies prove conclusively that GenTegra-RNA begins protecting your RNA the instant it is added to the RNA solution and protects RNA long-term better than storage at -20°C or -80°C and you save valuable freezer space. GenTegra-RNA is protected by an awarded US Patent.

All GenTegra-RNA products have a shelf life of 3-years at ambient temperatures.

GenTegra® -DNA Active Chemical Protection™

GenTegra-DNA is a water soluble chemical matrix that when added to purified DNA allows it to be air-dried to form a solid matrix which coats, preserves and protects DNA in the dry state at ambient temperatures. The protection is near perfect at the extremes of temperature (-80°C to +56°C) for many years. GenTegra-DNA is especially valuable and effective at protecting against the high temperatures likely to be encountered when shipping samples. Studies prove conclusively that GenTegra-DNA protects DNA better than storage at -20°C or -80°C and you save valuable freezer space. GenTegra-DNA has been protecting DNA samples since 2009 and is protected by an awarded US Patent. All GenTegra-DNA products have an expected shelf life of greater than 3-years at ambient temperatures. Accelerated temperature time studies show protection equivalent to >20 years. GenTegra-DNA has been protecting DNA since 2008 and is protected by an awarded US Patent. No need for a desiccant, ice or dry ice when shipping. And because of the stability at ambient temperatures it simply does not matter if the sample is delayed in shipment, it will still arrive perfectly intact and ready to use.

Once the purified DNA has been combined with the GenTegra-DNA matrix and dried it is stable and protected. And once dried it stays dry because it is not hydroscopic and will not take up water. Long term archiving of the DNA sample does not require either humidity control or desiccant to keep the DNA safe.

All GenTegra-DNA products have a shelf life of 3-years at ambient temperatures.
