Why Would I Store My DNA Sample?

There are many reasons why someone chooses to store their DNA sample with us using our DNA Banking and Storage service, but one of the principal reasons is for identification purposes.

People working in high-risk professions and industries often choose to store a sample of their DNA. This allows for easy identification in the event of fatal accidents, and is a popular choice for firemen, security and construction workers, amongst others.

Wills and the distribution of estates are often a cause of family conflict, as relatives fight to prove their genetic link to the deceased. By storing a sample of your DNA, it becomes easier to assess who is a blood relative and who is not. Your DNA sample could prevent unscrupulous people from laying claim to your estate after your death.

Health is an increasingly popular reason for banking and storing DNA samples. As science uncovers more and more information about the relevance of certain genes in diseases, banking your genetic code allows relatives to investigate their own chances of developing hereditary conditions. You could help future generations to avoid some diseases long before they have a chance to fully develop.

In the case of missing persons, stored DNA can be useful for proving identity. Because your DNA is as unique as your fingerprints, DNA samples are a quick and easy way of identifying someone with a biological link to your family.

Safe and Secure DNA Banking and Storage

DNA samples can degrade very quickly if they are not stored correctly. Once a DNA sample has begun to degrade, it is no longer viable, and there is little chance of extracting a full DNA profile. That’s why we go to great lengths to ensure that your DNA sample is stored under secure laboratory conditions. You can rest assured that your sample will be maintained in the optimum conditions to enable the successful extraction of a DNA profile whenever it is required.

You may provide permission for another person, or persons, to retrieve your sample in the future and your authorisation will be kept securely with your specimen and DNA profile.

DNA Banking and ID Profile for Legal Purposes

Should you require your DNA ID Profile to be valid for use in court, or for legal purposes, samples must be collected by an independent third party, often a doctor or nurse, who will verify ID and confirm that the sample has not been tampered with.

You will receive a DNA Banking and Storage Certificate, which gives details of the 15-year storage period. The certificate includes details of the people who will be allowed to access the DNA sample in the future.

Dog Allergy Test Kit Review
We had our dog allergy tested with you last year. We were advised that it is not a good enough test by our vet and many others online. This however couldn't be more wrong. We used the results to remove foods from her diet and even hypo-allergenic shampoos etc. Since she turned 1 years old we had her allergy tested by blood at the vet to see if she had out grown any of these allergies. The results were exactly the same as we were given by yourselves. Everything in red she is still allergic to. Without your help I'm not sure how we would of been able to help her in her first year. Especially given that she is allergic to almost everything hypoallergenic.

Please forward my praise to your superiors with regards to your customer attention - thank you for all the communication at all times, and making sure all OK. Much appreciated. 1 day into eliminating salmon oil from her diet (daily supplement I was giving her for for her arthritis) and the turkey menus she is considerably better, all in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see how she improves within a few weeks of elimination.
