How should the sampling kit be stored?
Prior to sampling, the kit can be kept at room temperature and has a shelf life of 3 months. Once the sample has been taken, the kit should be kept in cool conditions and away from direct sunlight before transit which should be as soon as possible after sampling. The preservative in the tubes stabilises the DNA, meaning it’s possible to detect eDNA in samples up to 2 months after sampling, but we do not advise leaving them this long!
