"So far, we have been very pleased with the DriBank system. We have used it for shipping of viral RNA samples from Israel (to Chicago), and from there for preparation of shotgun RNA-seq (metatranscriptome) sequencing. The libraries generated from the RNA were excellent, and we were able to detect viral RNA within a much larger pool of host RNA. We plan to use DriBank for future nucleic acid projects to avoid the hassle of dry ice and potential spillage of samples during shipment."
