Keep your samples safe!
Sample Storage at Ambient Temperature: Remove the cold chain altogether with DNA/RNA Shield sample storage.
DNA/RNA Shield from Zymo Research preserves the genetic integrity of samples at point of collection enabling high quality downstream analysis. All sample types can be stored in DNA/RNA Shield for transport at ambient temperature reducing cost and complexity.
- Protect DNA and RNA in any biological sample without cold chain
- Pathogen inactivation (bacteria, virus, eukaryotic)
- Streamlined purification – Universally compatible and automatable.
DNA/RNA Shield reagent is a DNA and RNA stabilization solution for nucleic acids in any biological sample. This DNA and RNA stabilization solution preserves the genetic integrity and expression profiles of samples at ambient temperatures and completely inactivates infectious agents (viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites). The unique DNA and RNA stabilization solution also prevents degradation from freeze-thaw cycling and unexpected freezer failures.

DNA/RNA Shield preserves the genetic integrity of a sample at point of collection for sensitive downstream analyses (e.g., Next-Gen Sequencing, RT-PCR, etc.). Any sample type can be stored in DNA/RNA Shield for transport at ambient temperature, even in the most extreme conditions.
Easy sample processing
DNA or RNA can be isolated directly from the sample without precipitation/removal of reagents. All samples stabilized in DNA/RNA Shield™ are compatible with most workflows (e.g., Qiagen, Roche, Thermo-Fisher) and for direct input into high-throughput processing (e.g., Hamilton, Tecan, bioMérieux, PerkinElmer, Eppendorf, Promega, Opentrons).
