DNA FAMILY BOOK wants to reach the largest possible number of families that may need -or be users- of the service, regardless of their economic possibilities. For this, we have adjusted the rates to the minimum.
The biological sample is collected in a completely painless way using the kit included in the premium service. This kit can also be purchased in advance (49€).
The DNA is purified from the sample with the consequent quality control. Finally, the DNA sample is deposited for preservation in the collaborating Center (also for 10 years, extendable).
Thus we can ensure that the DNA sample has verified quality to be analyzed with guarantees in subsequent genetic tests (unrelated to the service).
To the characteristics of the Premium service, this modality adds a visit with a professional Genetic Counsellor. This professional meets with the family to evaluate their joint medical history, and based on the type of disease and genetic knowledge available to date, recommends what steps to follow with the preserved DNA: performing an analysis of it, waiting for more research and more complete genetic analysis to be set, etc.
Together with the contracting of the “Premium” or “Premium EXPERT” service, up to 4 CASA Capsules can be requested with the DNA from the same person. Each CASA Capsule, with patented technology, is delivered inside the Egg or Frame device that is stored at room temperature .
This service allows to enlarge for 10 more years, the preservation of the DNA sample corresponding to the biobank as an extension of the service Premium or Premium EXPERT that has contracted previously.
