General description

QIAcard FTA Classic (25) is a non-indicating three sample regions framed card utilized for the transportation, preservation, and collection of blood, cells, and tissue that are pigmented biological material.


QIAcard FTA Classic (25) has been used for:
  • molecular biology and amplifying the whole genome
  • identification of animals, insects, and transgenics
  • genomics and plasmid screening
  • medical transfusions and human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing
  • drug development and short tandem repeat (STR) analysis
  • testing food and agriculture
Use FTA card technology for a wide range of applications:
  • Transgenic identification
  • Transfusion medicine
  • Plasmid screening
  • Food and agriculture testing
  • Drug discovery
  • Genomics
  • STR analysis
  • Animal identification
  • Whole genome amplification
  • Molecular biology

Features and Benefits

  • Consists of a free radical scavenger and chemical denaturants
  • Long-term sample storage at ambient temperature
  • Immediate DNA capture improves process efficiency for short tandem repeat (STR) analysis by allowing direct amplification
  • Contained in stiff card frame allowing the use of automated pipetting/dispensing and punching devices
  • Takes less than 30 minutes to capture nucleic acid for downstream applications
  • While proteins and inhibitors are removed from the matrix, DNA stays attached to flinders technology associates (FTA), at ambient temperature for years, minimizing laboratory freezers requirement.
  • Proteins, however, remain strongly linked to flinders technology associates (FTA) elute during the matrix′s elution of DNA

Other Notes

Sample integrity is optimized when FTA Cards are stored in a Multi-Barrier Pouch with a Desiccant Packet.
Field of Use : For internal research use only

Description of common problems that can occur during genomic DNA preparation

This article describes the evaluation of Whatman FTA cards from Cytiva for their ability to collect, store, and isolate high-quality RNA from a variety of crude biological samples.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a technique that results in exponential amplification of a target DNA sequence.


This study examined the yield and quality of DNA from samples applied to Whatman FTA cards, using five common methods of DNA extraction.

A number of options are available for sample collection, transport, archiving, and DNA purification.

Spectrophotometry can be used to estimate DNA or RNA concentration and to analyze the purity of the preparation.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
