FTA Elute Technology
Collect, Transport, Archive and Isolate Nucleic Acids – All at Room Temperature.
FTA Elute Cards utilize patented Whatman FTA technology that simplifies the handling and processing of nucleic acids. DNA is eluted in an easy step, providing you with DNA in solution for your amplification needs.
The FTA Elute matrix is chemically treated with proprietary reagents that lyse cells upon contact causing the release of nucleic acids. DNA is recovered from the FTA Elute matrix through a simplified elution process using water and heat. Inhibitory components, such as hemoglobin, are retained on the FTA Elute matrix.
The Indicating FTA Elute matrix is the same chemistry as FTA Elute with an indicating dye that changes from purple to white upon application of a colorless sample such as saliva, urine, buccal cell swabs and cultured cells.
