- Preloaded, openable inline filter housing
- Tubing extension for filter housing
Smith-Root is the first and only manufacturer of the Self-Preserving eDNA filter. The innovative design uses a biodegradable/hydrophilic resin to absorb moisture from the filter membrane, automatically preserving the captured eDNA. This greatly simplifies the sampling process. No more cold storage, bags of silica, or preservation buffer needed — simply place the filter back in the packaging and seal it shut. The eDNA is then shelf-stable for more than 6 months at room temperature! Self-preserving filters are ideal for projects that rely on citizen scientists for sampling or for researchers without a molecular biology background.
