Over past couple of months our laboratory noticed increasing demand for HOME DNA KITs and self-sampling, a convenient way how to carry out the DNA test. This option is especially convenient to patients coming from faraway and those who may not be mobile, babies and elderly.
Many people still think they have to come to our clinic to have samples taken for DNA test. The truth is that now you do not have to. How?…..Why?….. Well, our DNA Center developed protocol and procedures that you can collect saliva sample yourself at home or elsewhere outside our clinic using our DNA Sampling Kit and bring the samples to us when collected or even send it to us (we can arrange our courier to pick up the samples from you anywhere in Ghana or elsewhere in Africa).
To collect saliva samples at home is very simple, just swab the inside of the mouth with provided sterile cotton applicator and that is it. Now, you put the applicators inside provided sample envelopes and send the whole kit back to us for testing.
The results of home DNA test are as reliable as if you had your samples collected by one of our medical lab assistants at our facility, because our DNA testing processes are robust, accredited and 100% accurate.
