Order kit and saliva collection
After ordering the DNA.files BABY kit, the child's saliva sample is collected by using a suitable swab. The collection process is simple, painless and non-invasive.
DNA sequencing and analysis
DNA is extracted from saliva and all the 20,000 genes are sequenced (read) by Next Generation Sequencing. Our Genetic team search for mutations in over 500 genes causing diseases in children.
Genetic results are interpreted and validated by our Genetic team. Detected mutations and the associated disease are included in an easy-to-read report to support diagnosis and clinical decision.
DNA data storage
After DNA reading (sequencing), the complete sequence of the 20,000 genes is stored securely and anonymously for lifelong consultation, whenever clinically needed.
What is included
DNA.files BABY is more than a simple DNA analysis. This service includes: genetic counseling, saliva collection device, DNA sequencing and analysis, interpretation of genetic results, clinical report and storage of genetic sequence.
