Order NextCollectTM Kit
Urine Collection and DNA Preservation Kit
NextCollect™ is a first of its kind proprietary high volume urine specimen collection and stabilization kit.
Formulated DNA preservative solution is integrated into the NextCollect™ reservoir cap, and dispensed when secured to the NextCollect™ cup. When added to the urine specimen, NextCollect™ preserves DNA during transport for up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
NextCollect™ is designed to collect a higher volume of urine specimen, containing more DNA available for testing methods. NextCollect™ urine extracted DNA can be used for a range of applications across oncology, urology, virology and infectious disease.
NextCollect™ is manufactured for Research Use Only and not cleared for use in diagnostics procedures. No claim or representation is intended to provide information for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.

Urine Collection Kit
Each kit contains:
Package Insert with Collection Instructions
Urine Collection Cup
Plastic cup for 200mL (cc) urine specimen collection and transport
Cap with Preservative Reservoir
Specimen Patient Identification Label
See reverse side for sample collection instructions.
Store the Urine Collection Kit at room temperature (15°C to 30°C/59°F to 86°F).
Sample Storage and Transport
Preserved urine specimen is stable at room temperature, between 15°C to 30°C /59°F to 86°F, for up to 14 days.
Warnings and Precautions
Avoid puncturing the preservative film inside the cap prior to securing the cap on the urine collection cup.
If preservative solution contacts skin, rinse thoroughly
How It Works
Remove urine collection cup from kit. Leave cap affixed to box lid.
Complete specimen patient identification label with patient's name, date of birth(DOB) and date of collection(DOC) and affix label to urine collection cup.
Collect 200mL(cc) of urine into urine collection cup. Fill between minimum and maximum lines indicated on the cup.
Immediately after filling urine collection cup, remove cap from kit and secure onto cup.
Secure cap tightly on to cup, twisting past the audible "click" indicating the cap is completely fastened to the cup.
Observe preservative reagent solution releasing into urine sample. If preservative reagent does not release, untwist cap 1/4 turn and re-twist the cap onto the cup to ensure closure. Once securely fastened, gently swirl cup to mix preservative with the urine.
Place the urine collection cup in biohazard bag and seal bag to close.
Place sealed biohazard bag inside shipping box.
Ship as soon as possible.
Up to 200ml of urine can be collected in the cup, the preservative is another 30ml when released, and NextCollect™ total capacity is 250ml.
On average a typical urination provides 150-300ml, however, results can vary depending on the time of day, level of hydration, and treatment of illness.
No, the user can drink the same amount that they would normally drink. Drinking an excessive amount of water simply dilutes the sample.
Twist the cap onto the cup firmly, and there is an audible “click” indicating the cap is fully sealed onto the cup. The plastic film holding the preservative into the cap will make a tearing or puncturing sound when you twist, so the user will need to twist all the way through to the secure “click” lock for the cup to be sealed.
First, check to be sure the threads of the cap are aligned with the threads of the cup, and the cap isn’t tilted or offset. Untwist the cap off and try again. If the cap is on correctly, make sure to tighten all the way to the audible “click” indicating the cap is secure. If solution is still not released, loosen cap 1/4 to 1/2 turn without completely removing, and re-tighten.
Yes, if it takes multiple urinations to provide adequate volume that is ok. For the first urination, secure the cap to the cup to release the preservative solution. Re-open the cup to add subsequent urinations, re-fasten tightly all the way to the audible “click”, then prepare for shipment.
This varies depending on the test being done. Some tests require only a few milliliters; others require hundreds of milliliters. In general, it is best to try to reach the 200ml fill line unless the test provider has indicated a specific target fill volume for your test.
After ensuring the cap is tight, the device and specimen are very secure. NextCollect™ is manufactured with strong materials to withstand bumps and pressure changes during transport. DNA stability of the preserved specimen has been tested for up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
Yes, NextCollect™ was designed to be placed directly into a centrifuge.
NextCollect™ has been tested with a variety of available DNA extraction kits, and choosing the correct kit will depend on the downstream assay being performed.
The preservative inside NextCollect™ will preserve all nucleic acid at –80°C for an extended period of time, however, a freeze/thaw cycle will lyse cells in the specimen releasing their genomic DNA contents into the sample and this should be factored into the test being performed. It also is possible to spin down the specimen directly in the NextCollect™ device, and then store the supernatant and pellets separately if cellular DNA is a contaminant for your specific downstream assay.
Dispose of the collection cup in a bio-hazard bag.
