Collection Process

We routinely use buccal swabs to obtain DNA for testing. The inside of an individual's cheek is swabbed to obtain buccal cells. This process is a painless, non-invasive collection procedure. The DNA is then extracted from these cells and used for testing. If necessary, we can test other samples. Contact us if you have any questions about special circumstances.

About Donation Blood

Main A Spot Image: 

I am a Red Cross blood donor that won't give up. I tried to give blood when i was 18, but was declined in both my junior and seniour high school years. Once I got to college, I was deferred again. I was finally able to give blood and have given twice. I love donating blood. The tought of being able to help save three people's lives every time I go makes me feel like a better person. - Rino Sato - Repeat Donor
