Introducing DNA Genotek’s first visual adventure – a fun trip through the blood vs saliva cost journey. You and I know what they say, ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ right? So today I am not going to talk about the cost of saliva DNA collection or write an article about it. I am sharing a visual representation highlighting 3 key areas in which saliva collection is more cost-effective than blood collection. Some people call it a diagram. Most people these days call it an infographic. At the end of the day, it's a simple way to represent long-winded or complex arguments without resorting to reams of verbiage and pages of dense text.
Check out this infographic and you'll get the picture in record time.
After writing a series of blog articles on how the cost of saliva DNA collection stacks up against blood, we thought this infographic provided a great visual summary.
