Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the Thermo Scientific SpeciMAX Stabilized Saliva Collection Kit, which is designed to safely collect saliva for research.
The SpeciMAX Stabilized Saliva Collection Kit preserves viral nucleic acids in a non-hazardous stabilization solution that inactivates common respiratory viruses for safer sample collection.
The kit comes with an easy-to-use, spill-resistant funnel, a screw cap to secure the sample after collection, and a standardized size tube that fits seamlessly into viral RNA extraction automation workflows for high throughput sample processing.
The new kit complements Thermo Fisher's recently launched SpeciMAX Saliva Collection Kit for raw saliva. Both products come individually packaged and barcoded, require just 1 mL of saliva and are a standardized 6 mL size to fit into downstream automation workflows.
