Sending biological samples across international borders is complex. We developed a cutting-edge filter card technology to grand high quality extraction for DNA, RNA, enzymes, and metabolic biomarker. This makes sending patient samples as easy as mailing a letter.
Samples are stable once they dry and can be mailed directly to CENTOGENE by regular post in the pre-addressed envelope provided
CentoCard enables the stablisation for molecules in dried blood: DNA for years, enzymes and metabolites for month, and RNA for days
CentoCard allows any type of analysis: Genetic testing from single gene assay to whole genome sequencing, enzyme activity and biomaker measurement, as well as whole mRNA sequencing
Samples should be sent to:
Am Strande 7
Prepare the filter card
Transfer the blood
Dry the sample for two hours
Package the filter card
Send it to CENTOGENE
*Samples may be significantly impaired by improper handling or preparation that does not comply with the instructions for use i.e. usage of non-EDTA blood or non-freshly drawn blood for CentoCard® preparation and/or extended shipping times. For proper handling, please follow the CentoCard® Instruction for Use provided by CENTOGENE.
