Zymo Gets CE Mark for Saliva, Swab Sample Collection Kits

NEW YORK — Zymo Research said on Wednesday that it has received CE marking for its SafeCollect line of sample collection kits.

The kits, which are available in both swab and saliva formats, include collection tubes containing Zymo's DNA/RNA Shield stabilization solution for nucleic acid preservation at ambient temperatures for at least 30 days.

Earlier this year, Irvine, California-based Zymo received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration for its DNA/RNA Shield Collection Tube, allowing its use for SARS-CoV-2 testing. That product is also CE-IVD marked.
