39352129

In the course of sampling, DNAlogy offers you free-of charge the DNAlogy-kit including the sterilized cotton swab, sampling instructions and a consent/order form for the applicant.
The aim of sampling is to collect as many cheek cells as possible and to transfer them to the sterilized cotton swab, which is going to protect DNA until its transfer to our laboratory.
Attention: Avoid any contact with the cotton tip end of the swabs.
Do not eat, drink or smoke for at least 30 minutes before sampling.
For the sampling procedure, each individual should use 2 swabs.

Step 1
Label the swabs with a unique identifying name and sampling date.

Step 2
Carefully open the sterile swab packaging holding the red plastic applicator end and remove the swab from the packaging.

Step 3
Sampling: Rub the cotton tip of the swab firmly against the inside of both cheeks several times (20-30 seconds) in each direction.

Step 4
Air dry the swabs for at least 1 hour at room temperature while keeping them protected from any source of contamination. When dry, place the swabs back in their packaging. Repeat the steps 1-4 with the second swab

Step 5
Send the swabs back to DNAlogy along with the completed questionnaire (consent and order form) by using the reply envelope.

DNAlogy, the European Center for Genetics and DNA Identification is a model laboratory based on international standards in the fields of medicine and justice, which offers now in Greece all the up to date scientific methods for DNA analysis.

DNAlogy constitutes the Greek part of the world known French laboratory IGNA and consists of a scientific team of Doctors, Geneticists and Molecular Biologists who are innovative and internationally recognized in the field of Genetic Diagnosis and DNA analysis.

DNAlogy, was founded in 2009 in Athens, aiming to offer a high level technology and innovation to European medicine, justice, law and other scientific groups. We intend to cover the needs of the European market and society in the field of genetic and DNA analysis, helping at the same time Greece to meet European and international standards.

DNAlogy services apply in private and court cases linked to criminal investigation (murders, rapes, robberies, kidnaps etc.) as well as in civil cases, offering DNA Identification and Biological Material Detection services. In parallel, we offer a great variety of analyses for the determination of biological relationships (DNA Paternity test, maternity, brotherhood, grandparentage, etc.) through a quick, secure and easy saliva sampling procedure with absolute discretion and privacy thanks to the home collection DNAlogy-kit®.

Finally, DNAlogy offers services in animal genetics (horses, etc.) as well as consultation and educational services.

DNAlogy’s DNA Experts of the Greek Justice, Dr. Fitsialos Georgios, (CEO) and Dr. Karantzali Efthymia (Lab Director) guarantee absolute reliability and validity of the results.
