For the genetic examination we only need a little bit of saliva, dried blood or EDTA-Blood. From them dry sample the DNA will be isolated. Depending on the test, only a small part of the isolated DNA is needed for the test. This part of the DNA will be multiplied synthetically (Ploymerase Chain Reaction, PCR), so there is enough material to check if there is a mutation.

Request forms with consent form and saliva collection kits you can order by phone, fax or email.

What should i do?

  1. Rub with your tongue on the inside of your cheek for about 30 seconds.
  2. Give some saliva on the filter paper. Minimum the half of it must be covered.
  3. Mark the wet area with a pen.

  6. Put the sample in the bag together with the lab contract signed by your doctor and you. Send it all to our lab. (The adress you can find on this site Contact)
