"The collection protocol is very convenient, the extraction is very quick and simple, and the yield is great. Our downstream applications include PCR, restriction enzyme digestion and sequencing. We have collected numerous family members who were not willing to go for a blood draw, as well as children, elderly patients and overseas relatives. The ease of shipping and self-collection are remarkable. Our lab is very impressed with this timely product."

We all love to groove to the beats of our favorite tunes - whether busting it out on the dance floor, bopping in our cars or shaking it alone in our kitchens, we all do it. In fact, you could say we all have the Groove Gene and a unique way of "expressing" it. In this fun, creative contest we brought people together from all over the world to celebrate our shared and inherent love of music with our unique genetic individuality that makes us groove to our own beat.

Watch how we shake up our groove gene here at DNA Genotek.
