Mouth sampling - Buccal Swab
We noticed that even more buccal swab are not sufficient or bad care collection and this lead to impossibility to obtain and give a result. In order to avoid to recollect samplings again and to have to pay again, we insist on the fact to have a good sampling.
To obtain a good quality sampling, we need to have enough cells of the oral mucous membrane, (saliva does not contain DNA), that means, firmly rotate the brush inside the mouth between the gum and the cheek at least 20 times. (instruction for use on the sample DNA collection form)
