DNA FAMILY BOOK want to reach the largest number of families who may need the service –or be user of it-, regardless of their means. To do this, we have created several levels with different service modalities as described in the following table.
The biological sample is collected and deposited for preservation (for 10 years, extendable) directly without having previously purified the DNA.
It is the most economical modality, but carries a greater risk since the DNA of the original sample is not isolated and therefore it is not so sure to guarantee its quality.
The biological sample is collected, the DNA is purified from the sample, with consequent quality control of the sample. Finally, the DNA sample is deposited for preservation in the collaborating Center (also for 10 years, extendable).
This is the method we recommend, and we can ensure that the DNA sample has verified quality to be analyzed with guarantees in subsequent genetic testing (outside the service).
Premium EXPERT Service
The biological sample is collected, the DNA is purified from the sample, with consequent quality control of the sample. The DNA sample is deposited for preservation at the collaborating Center (also for 10 years, extendable) and DNA FAMILY BOOK’s user recieves the advice of a Genetic Counsellor specialist (the modality includes the first meeting with the counsellor).
In the case “Premium” or “Premium EXPERT” service has been contracted, up to 4 CASA capsules can be ordered with the DNA coming from the same person.
From the biological sample preserved with the Basic Service, at the time during its conservation when the user requests it, the DNA may be purified and its quality controlled. The combination of Basic and Advanced services is equivalent to the Premium service.
This service allows to enlarge for 10 years more the preservation of the biological or DNA sample corresponding to the Basic, Premium or Premium CASA service previously contracted.
