Sample Requirement and Processing
Please note we usually only accept samples in batches of 12 or more. For smaller numbers please contact us.

- Plasma: 100 -200 μl

We prefer not to work with pre-extracted DNA samples as different extraction methods may affect the quality of DNA and results of the assay(s). Please contact us for detailed requirements if you are testing materials other than these listed above or if you wish us to use pre made DNA.
Samples should be frozen at -80°C immediately after collection and shipped to mitoDNA® in dry ice using an appropriate courtier. Failure of these requirements may compromise the quality of samples and experimental results and mitoDNA® accepts no responsibility for inaccuracy of the experiments as a result.
