To ensure accurate genetic analysis and reliable results, a crime scene sample collection device should prevent or neutralize microbial contamination, while preserving the integrity of nucleic acids.
Contaminated or insufficient sample from a crime scene could compromise the whole investigation. FLOQSwabs™ Crime Scene collect evidence samples, such as sweat, semen, blood stains, skin and environmental traces from crime scenes. The superior release of flocked swabs (compared to traditional fiber swabs) becomes critical when the sample is scarce
The advanced antimicrobial system neutralizes environmental microbes, prevents sample contamination and preserves sample integrity. Superior uptake and release and antimicrobial action make this line suitable for crime scene investigations.
Carefully molded product line 4N6FLOQSwabs™ Crime Scene is anatomically designed to collect samples from challenging surfaces and samples with LCN DNA. Special geometries available for different collection sites, including subungual, bottles, and flat surfaces. Copan FLOQSwabs even deliver exceptional performance for LCN samples such as touch DNA collection which delivers high DNA yield for downstream PCR processing.
The NAO®Basket (Nucleic Acid Optimizer) semi-permeable basket is a fast and highly
efficient system for releasing and concentrating all human DNA from swab samples,
card punches or other specimens.
NAO®Basket, coupled with a 2mL or 1.5mL microtube, enables to perform in one
simple procedure the sample lysis and the provides optimal recovery of DNA.
NAO®Basket used with COPAN FLOQSwabs® allows the complete release of all the
sample collected by the swab, particularly critical for crime scene evidence testing.
