Short-term storage method for genomic DNA

The aim of this study, from the Akdeniz University, was to assess the DNA preservation capability of cellulose paper towel and blotting paper as low-cost alternatives to commercial DNA preservation products. The results of this study demonstrated that cellulose-based blotting paper and especially paper towel had considerable DNA binding and preservation capacity for at least 130 days at room temperature without DNA degradation.

Innovation:
This study showed that cellulose-based paper towel can preserve genomic DNA under room temperature conditions without degradation. This cost-effective, practical and reliable technique can be an inexpensive alternative to high-cost DNA preservation products. This simple short-term DNA storage method is expected to save researchers from the cost of cold-chain applications and high-priced DNA preservation products in future field studies.
