The genetic material of the collected samples is stored and available for the same time period of 8 weeks after collection, for molecular biology indepth analysis. For optimal samples fixation, it is recommended to respect the safety ratio between the sample and the fixative of 1:4, equivalent to the following volumes:

  • Maximum 5 ml of sample per 20 ml of CYTOfast solution (5 ml for each CYTOfast vial)

CYTOfast solution is ready-to-use and is stable for 24 months at room temperature.

The conical-bottom vials are equipped with a special disposable cardboard base, removable at the time of centrifugation, totally recyclable, which allows to keep the vials vertically stable, facilitating the sampling phases. The centrifuge-ready vials allow you to directly centrifuge the collected sample, without needing to decant from the primary collection vial. To be used when the collected samples are expected to be treated to reduce any possible “darkening elements” (blood, mucus).
