Packaging and travelling conditions
EXOME GENE, EXOME PANEL, EXOME 15MB, EXOME 33MB TRIO, EXOME 38MB, EXOME 50MB, GENOME FULL, MLPA, array-CGH, CFTR34, CFTR139, CFTR152: no particular travelling conditions are required, as DNA and EDTA-blood for DNA extraction purposes are generally very stable. Other samples such as filter cards, buccal swabs, whole saliva and mouth wash are also very stable.
METABOLOME PLUS: special travelling conditions apply, since urine metabolites decay very quickly at room temperature. So we recommend that you contact us to organize the shipment in advance: email@example.com.
KÁRION-500 / KÁRION-800: 3 ml of blood in lithium-heparin (green cap tubes) are required for karyotype analysis at 500 or 800 banding. The sample must reach us within 48 hours from sampling. No refrigeration is needed.
RNA analysis: refrigeration is necessary to send RNA samples or EDTA-blood for purposes of RNA extraction, so we recommend that you contact us to organize the shipment in advance: firstname.lastname@example.org. A valid alternative to sending RNA is sending cDNA. cDNA is typically more stable than RNA and can be shipped at room temperature.
