Price / TAT: 1030 EUR / 2-4 weeks

Discount of 10% on the total price for ordering more than one type of test on the same sample.


Specimen requirements: 2-4 ml of blood with anticoagulant EDTA
Send blood samples at room temperature. Blood samples can be preserved at 2-8°C before shipping. Blood samples are recommended not to freeze and not to store longer than one week.

2 µg DNA in TE, AE or pure sterile water at 100-250 ng/µl
Send DNA samples at room temperature or frozen. To avoid sample loss and contamination, please use 0,5-2,0 ml screw cap tubes, tubes with safe lock lid or wrap the caps of each microtube with parafilm. The A260/A280 ratio should be 1.8-2.0. DNA sample should be run on an agarose gel as a single band, showing no degradation, alongside with a quantitative DNA marker.

50-75 mg fresh frozen tissue (in case suspected mtDNA mutations may not be detected in DNA extracted from blood)
Tissue should be frozen immediately at collection, stored at -80°C and shipped on dry ice.
