Oragene is a reliable source of DNA for next generation sequencing

Posted by Rafal Iwasiow on Mon, Mar 28, 2011 @ 01:03 AM

This week, at Genomics Disorders 2011 in Cambridge, UK, DNA Genotek presented a poster reflecting new research findings. Building on the success of previous Genomic Disorders meetings, this year’s venue presented an exciting blend of genomic science and clinical medicine. The meeting’s goal is to bring together scientists and clinicians interested in genomic variation in humans and the mechanisms by which variations exert phenotypic effects. We used this opportunity to showcase new research findings that demonstrate Oragene•DNA is a reliable source of DNA for next generation sequencing.

DNA saliva samples for SNP and CNV analysis on microarrays

Posted by Rafal Iwasiow on Tue, Oct 05, 2010 @ 11:10 AM

For any type of genetic analysis (e.g. population studies, clinical genetic testing, paternity testing, pharmacogenomic testing), non-invasive and easy-to-use sample collection techniques are preferred because they increase compliance rates and reduce costs. Oragene•DNA is a DNA self-collection kit that is completely non-invasive, intuitive to use, and stabilizes DNA at elevated temperatures which facilitates transport and storage by eliminating the need for refrigeration.
