This invention relates to the gathering of biological specimens, e.g. DNA, from target areas or items, e.g. weapons, on a crime scene or elsewhere. Although DNA can be gathered, doing so at the scene is often difficult. DNA often becomes compromised or lost. This invention is a kit for the collection of biological samples, which enhances DNA and destroys bacteria that may potentially degrade it.
The last claim of the patent is not limited to DNA. It covers all specimen. Applications: Collection of various specimen Companies: Laboratories
Applications: Collection of biological specimen Companies: Taser Corporation
Seems to solve a problem with gathering DNA evidence. Appears to make specimen gathering simpler. Applications: Any application where it is needed to obtain a DNA sample outside of a clinical setting. Might also be useful in a clinical setting as well. Companies: DNA testing companies, medical and forensic equipment manufacturers.
