We offer FTA Elute cards and Indicating FTA Elute cards. Indicating FTA Elute cards, recommended for colorless samples, change color from pink to white when sample is applied, verifying the location of the sample. These patented Whatman FTA Elute technology simplifies the collection and storage of biological samples and the purification of nucleic acids at room temperature. When the biological sample is applied onto the card, cell membranes and organelles are lysed and the released nucleic acids are entrapped in the fibers of the matrix. In contrast to regular FTA cards, the FTA Elute chemistry enables elution of single-stranded DNA into buffer following a quick purification protocol.

FTA Classic Card

The FTA classic card utilizes patented Whatman FTA technology that simplifies the handling and processing of nucleic acids. FTA cards contain chemicals that lyse cells, denature proteins, and protect nucleic acids from nucleases, oxidative, and UV damage. FTA cards rapidly inactivate organisms, including bloodborne pathogens, and prevent the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms. They allow you to capture nucleic acids in one easy step. Simply apply your sample to the FTA card. Cell membranes and organelles are lysed and the released nucleic acids are entrapped in the fibers of the matrix. The nucleic acids remain immobilized and are stabilized for transport, immediate processing, or longterm room temperature storage. Since captured nucleic acids are stabilized, FTA cards facilitate sample collection in remote locations and simplify sample transport. For example, you can collect samples in the field without worrying about immediate refrigeration. Ship your samples back to the laboratory without expensive special handling or dry ice and process at your convenience. There are four sample areas for application of up to 500μl whole blood or 100μl plant homogenate per card. Convenient for protocols that require different locations for testing and archiving samples. Different samples can be processed independently. Classic indicating card is designed with a color indicator that changes from pink to white when sample is applied. Recommended for use with clear samples such as buccal samples or cultured cells.
