eNAT™ is a versatile system that combines a COPAN-invented FLOQSwab® with 2mL Guanidine-thiocyanate based medium that stabilizes the RNA and DNA of Viruses, Bacteria, Chlamydia, Trichomonas vaginalis, and Mycoplasma.

eNAT™ is a versatile molecular medium specially designed to stabilize and preserve microbial and human nucleic acids (RNA/DNA) for prolonged time periods

Guanidine-thiocyanate in eNAT™ breaks open microbial cells to release DNA and RNA, while preventing bacterial proliferation and prevents target sequence degradation from RNA and DNA nucleases.

Sample Collection System Designed for Molecular Assays

  • Securely handle specimens that may contain highly infectious agents using eNAT™ medium which contains a detergent and a protein denaturant to completely inactivate microbial viability within 30 minutes.
  • Nuclease inactivation provided by the eNAT™ medium ensures the integrity of the target sequence and protects polynucleotides against exposure to DNases and RNases.
  • Store preserved RNA and DNA in the sample for long term storage for future testing at room temperature for up to four weeks or at -20°C for up to six months.
  • eNat™ has been FDA cleared Flu A RNA stabilization with implied use for COVID samples.

NOTE!!: Nucleic acids must be extracted from eNAT™ and purified prior to adding to the Master Mix.

More Sample Available for Testing

The flocked swab tip is coated with perpendicularly sprayed on Nylon® fibers. This coating creates a thin absorbent layer that allows for quick sample uptake and elution of more than 90% of the sample. Compare this elution to traditional spun swabs that trap the majority of the specimen in the 'mattress' structure, making it unavailable for testing, and it's easy to see why FLOQSwabs® are used by more and more laboratories and medical institutions around the world.

FLOQSwabs® have no internal core to trap the specimen.

Better diagnostics begin with better specimen collections!

Anatomically designed FLOQSwabs® were developed out of an extensive collaboration with physicians and clinical microbiologists, and a tireless drive to optimize the efficiency of pre-analytical sample collection and transport. The results are optimized efficiency and reproducibility of the target analyte collection, enhanced flow dynamics and assay sensitivity, and expanded testing capabilities.

Innovative FLOQSwabs® improve specimen collection and testing capabilities resulting in better clinical care.

Why are flocked swabs better than traditional fiber swabs?

  • Clinicians report better patient comfort due to ergonomic, anatomic swab design and softer texture.
  • Studies show that samples collected using FLOQSwabs® improve test sensitivity because they elute more than 90% of the specimen.
  • Strong capillary hydraulics between the strands of Nylon® expedites maximum liquid sample uptake and release.
  • Soft brush-like texture of the swabs facilitates efficient dislodging of the target cells.
  • Compatible with multiple applications and platforms including bacteriology and virology culture, rapid antigen testing, molecular-based assays, direct fluorescent antibody (DFA) tests, enzyme immune assay testing (EIA) and cytology testing.
