Fully Customizable Biosample Collection Kits Built to Order
While you are focused on understanding the role genes play in an individual’s health and translating that knowledge into applications with real-world impact, we are here to help you integrate the right biosample collection strategy.
Based on your needs this help may only include built-to-order customized biosample collection kits, or it could also incorporate a complete solution. Solutions include items like custom kit packaging, direct-to-donor fulfillment, and both physical and digital biosample chain-of-custody with the ability to customize notifications.
Build Your Customized Biosample Collection Kit
Building a custom kit happens one of two ways, we can help walk you through the steps or you can explore your kit options by using our kit builder tool (kit builder tool is coming soon, please reach out for help with this feature).
Every DNA project is unique and trying to decide which biosample best serves the project needs can be a challenge. In some cases this decision can even affect project enrollment. When building your kit careful consideration of the user collection experience can greatly impact the overall results. Read more about choosing saliva vs. blood.
Making a case for Saliva vs. Blood
Blood has long been the gold standard for whole-genome (WGS) and exome sequencing (WES). With technology and science advancing faster than many can comprehend, this begs the question, is it possible there could be a better solution? The answer is yes. Saliva holds all the high-quality and high-yield DNA needed to run the WES and WGS and can be self-collected. Like with most things in the clinical and medical DNA science industry, a new technically-superior whole saliva DNA collection device is now available.
Blood will always have its place, for example, if participants are already visiting a clinic or additional blood panels are required
by the given research protocol, but saliva offers remote study participation, can include patients with an aversion to blood, and offers ease of additional collection for familial links (i.e. Trios). It transports well at ambient temperatures, offers long-term DNA stability, is non-invasive and patient-friendly
