We decided to try some new approaches to build even more collaboration and knowledge sharing between our customers.

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.
