Description The main aim of this study was to find the appropriate way of DNA or biological samples storage on chitosan medium (prepared by Food Research Institute in Prague). While storing these samples on chitosan, it should be possible to keep this material at the room temperature for a long time. We tried to store the isolated genomic DNA, blood, milk, meat, sperm, saliva and pieces of ears (all from livestock) on the chitosan in different thermal conditions to verify the influence of the environment on the sample quality.
