White Paper:  Evaluating the Efficiency of the Bode Buccal DNA Collector™ Compared to Treated Collection Cards for DNA Databasing proves  the elimination of a transfer step reduces cost, processing time, re-run and re-collection rates and improves the likelihood of the sample being entered into the database.


 Product Features:

    •  Buccal DNA Collector: The Buccal DNA Collector is a non-invasive method of collecting cell samples from the inside of an individual’s cheek for DNA analysis. The collector is comprised of Untreated Cotton paper for collection, a plastic handle with a label for sample identification, a plastic support, and a slider cover that protects the sample from contamination while allowing the paper to dry. The larger surface area of the paper means that ample DNA is collected on a single collector. It also means that the collector can be punched multiple times in the event that a sample needs to be re-processed. The handle and the support provide space for applying a barcode that can be used for sample tracking.

    • Buccal DNA Transport Pouch with Desiccant/Information Form:The Buccal DNA Transport Pouch is designed specifically for the transport and short-term storage of the Buccal DNA Collector. The transport pouch contains desiccant that helps the collector dry and maintains a dry environment that allows for DNA stability during short-term storage.The Information Form is integrated on to the Transport Pouch for collection convenience. The form is designed to collect all of the proper information for any collection need including the subject’s personal information, consent, the sample administrator’s information, and a thumbprint sample.

    • Ink Strip/ Alcohol Pad: An ink strip and alcohol pad are included to collect a thumbprint sample – if required. The thumbprint sample is collected directly on the Buccal DNA Transport Pouch/ Information Form
    • Instruction Sheet: Provides thorough instruction on how to use the collector and how to use the kit
    • Gloves: A pair of vinyl gloves for the person administering the sample. These gloves protect the administrator from any biological material and protect the sample from contamination
    • Evidence Tape: Used to create a tamper proof seal on the transport pouch
