SafeForever™- A Path Breaking Technology To Collect, Transport & Preserve Biological Samples Indefinitely At Ambient Temperatures.
Revolutionizing biospecimen handling with SafeForever™ technology—eliminating pre-processing, cold storage, and reducing costs in diagnostics and genomics.
SafeForever™ stands as an innovative marvel, meticulously crafted to revolutionize the realm of biospecimen storage and transportation, catering to a myriad of downstream applications. Biospecimens, the precious resources garnered from diverse biological sources, encompassing Humans, Animals, plants, and the environment or most valuable for researchers since the sample health is cardinal for their experimental results
However, the prevailing methodologies for collecting, moving, and preserving these invaluable biospecimens suffer from exorbitant costs, inefficiencies, and limited accessibility, largely contingent upon the intricate cold-chain logistics. This heavy dependence on the cold-chain significantly impairs the quality of the biospecimens intended for downstream processing, posing considerable challenges.
In response to these age-old dilemmas, SafeForever™ emerges as a beacon of ingenuity; the avant-garde product boasts a seamless and unparalleled robust solution, facilitating effortless transport and long-term storage of top-tier biospecimens, ensuring their utmost quality for any downstream applications. SafeForever™ truly redefines the landscape of biospecimen management, propelling research and diagnostics to unprecedented comfort with best experimental experience.
SafeForever™ has been tested on all these types of biospecimens, yielding outstanding results in preserving their integrity. For instance, human cancer tumors and blood samples were utilized for molecular diagnostics and long-term biobanking, demonstrating the technology's remarkable efficacy.
SafeForever™ guarantees unparalleled preservation of sample integrity like never seen before. Its advanced formulation acts as a protective shield, safeguarding precious samples from degradation, thereby conserving vital nucleic acids and proteins even at ambient temperatures.
Say Goodbye to expensive ultra-low temperature storage with SafeForever™. Samples remain stable and viable for years to come, offering a more flexible and cost-effective storage solution that stands the test of time.
From cutting-edge research labs to state-of-the-art diagnostic facilities, SafeForever™ caters to a diverse range of biobanking needs. Its compatibility with various sample types, including blood, tissues, and cells, establishes it as the go-to choice for researchers, clinicians, veterinarians, and agricultural scientists alike.
The user-friendly design of SafeForever™ ensures effortless integration into existing biobanking workflows. Its simple application process empowers researchers and minimizes the risk of errors during sample preservation, fostering a smooth and efficient operational experience.
Biospecimens are invaluable assets acquired from diverse biological sources, encompassing humans, animals, plants, and the environment. They serve as a critical foundation for research, diagnostics, and even product development, influencing key decision-making processes.
The current handling of Biospecimens primarily relies on the cold chain, a vital aspect that poses challenges at every stage, as highlighted in the constraints depicted in the illustration below.
SafeForever™ revolutionizes biospecimen handling by eliminating barriers like sample pre-processing and the need for cold chain transport and storage, offering numerous advantages. SafeForever™ technology inherently neutralizes pathogens, rendering preprocessing and pathogen containment facilities unnecessary, thereby enhancing sample quality and reducing associated costs in molecular diagnostics.
Moreover, samples collected do not require storage at extreme temperatures (-20°C, -80°C, or in liquid nitrogen chambers); they can be safely preserved at ambient room temperature. SafeForever™ is a pathbreaking solution that paves the way for cost-effective frugal diagnostics, bio-banking, fostering next-generation genomics and diagnostics at a significantly lower cost.

The endoscopic biopsy samples stored in SafeForever™ were used for the study of metagenomics by performing 16srRNA sequencing on Oxford Nanopore sequencing. The 16S Barcoding Kits and EPI2ME 16S analysis workflow was used, Library preparation protocol to sequence full length 16S rRNA gene in Nanopore MinION sequencer using the primers V1-V9.
The 16S workflow was useful in understanding the composition of a microbial community in the gut of the samples that was stored in SafeForever™. The gut microbiome analysis of patient sample collected, stored & transported in SafeForever™ helped clinician in better diagnosis based on microbiome report.
The high quality DNA was isolated from SafeForever™ preserved samples as in the table below.
