Buccal Collection

Isohelix Buccal Swabs are designed with our patented head matrix to maximize sample quantity per collection giving you the best possible results.

With multiple options available for both storage and quantity there’s an Isohelix Buccal Swab to suit every requirement. 

Buccal Stabilization

Isohelix Buccal Sample Stabilization Kits are designed from the ground-up to work exclusively with buccal samples, giving maximum sample quality and yield, allowing you to perform even the most demanding downstream applications.

With options for DNA, RNA and Microbiome, Isohelix Stabilization Kits present an easy to use and affordable platform for swab sampling that would have previously been unavailable or unaffordable.

Buccal Extraction

Isohelix Buccal Extraction Kits are designed to work exclusively with buccal swabs, yielding the best results on the market. Whereas most kits are suited to generic testing for a variety of sample formats, Isohelix Buccal Extraction kits are fully optimized to work with all buccal swab samples.

With a variety of different method formats available, each Isohelix kit has been developed to help achieve the best results possible whilst fitting seamlessly in to existing systems and practices, therefore reducing costs and saving valuable time.

Isohelix Buccal Swabs Superior Performance

The Isohelix range of Buccal Swabs has been designed to give increased yields of high quality buccal cell and genomic DNA and offer significant advantages over other swab designs.
