DNA TESTS FOR TWINS
Monozygotic or dizygotic twins
Description
A DNA twin test offers a clear answer to whether the twins are identical or not.

A twin test determines whether the twins are monozygotic or dizygotic i.e. if they come from one fertilized egg (monozygotic) or whether they come from two fertilized eggs (dizygotic). The analysis is based on the assumption that monozygotic twins are genetically identical by sharing the exact genetic material, while dizygotic twins share only half of their genetic material.

 This information could be useful in many cases:

1. Personal reasons; when the parents want to know if their twins are identical or not

2. Medical reasons: blood transfusions or organ transplant where it is important to know whether the twins are identical as monozygotic twins are the perfect donors for each other (best chance for organ acceptance).

Participants in DNA Twins Test
A DNA twin test offers a clear answer to whether the twins are identical or not.

A DNA twin test offers a clear answer to whether the twins are identical or not. Participation of both twins is necessary. Comparison of the twin’s genetic profiles is performed by analyzing 16 standard genetic markers.

Sampling
For twin testing DNAlogy sends you the DNAlogy-PATROTISkit® free of charge.

The test is performed using saliva sampling ; samples are therefore easily collected, sent by post and finally stored at room temperature for years.
Saliva sampling makes collection simple, more convenient and guarantees easy sampling, postage and storage of the DNA samples.
Under special circumstances we also gather samples from other biological materials such as bloodstains (from band aids, clothes, bandages) as well as other sources including hair follicles, toothbrushes, pacifiers, cigarette butts, chewing gum, tissues etc.

For more information regarding sampling and postage of the kit please contact our lab.

Results
DNAlogy completes tests and has results within 7 working days after receiving the specimens.

You receive a DNA Expert Report with the analytical lab results and analytical conclusion(s), signed by our DNA Experts.

The process can be reduced to 3-5 working days by using express postal services. The results are delivered to the person who filled in the application either by post, e-mail or by personally visiting the DNAlogy lab in Athens.

Instructions
INSTRUCTIONS FOR BUCCAL CELL COLLECTION: DNALOGY-KIT
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.
