Patented FTA technology simplifies the isolation, storage, and processing of nucleic acids from biological sources including whole blood, buccal cells, and plant material. Sample is applied to the FTA card and allowed to dry; the cells are lysed on contact. The released DNA is captured, stabilized, and protected from nucleases, oxidation, and UV damage.

  • DNA from blood stored at room temperature on FTA cards exhibits no loss in PCR efficiency after 22 years and counting
  • FTA cards are available in white and as pink indicating cards for colorless fluids
  • Pink indicating cards disclose where colorless samples have been spotted by changing to white spot
