Monitoring and identification of pathogens, fast and efficient

GPSponge® is a kit for the collection, inactivation, transport and storage of environmental samples for subsequent nucleic acid purification. One of its key advantages lies in the use of our patented buffer, which allows the transport of stabilized DNA or RNA at room temperature without the need for refrigeration. The stabilizing solution effectively inactivates viruses and non-sporulated bacteria. As a result, the collected samples are rendered non-infectious, ensuring safe handling and shipping. This buffer is incorporated into a highly porous cellulose sponge, making it easy to sample surfaces, including animals or objects.

Key Features:

  • Easy-to-use and affordable
  • Complete solution for non-invasive sampling
  • Nucleic acid stabilization at room temperature and indefinitely at – 20 °C or – 80 °C
  • Environmental sampling, reduced risk of contamination
  • Safer sample collection and transport
  • Do not need immediate sample processing
  • Compatible with different DNA/RNA purification systems
  • Odour elimination during processing
  • Homogeneous sampling process, reproducible results
