GENETICS

Genetics is the branch of science concerned with genes, hereditary, and variations in living organisms. While Medical Genetics (or genetic medicine) is involved with the diagnosis and management of hereditary disorders and incorporates areas such as gene therapy, personalized medicine and predictive medicine, Human Genetics studies typically non-medical phenotypes (such as paternity testing or human identification). Genetic testing which is used to analyze human genes is performed in a laboratory, mainly using cells gathered from inside the cheek (buccal swab) or a blood sample. COPAN has developed a complete line of Human DNA Free FLOQSwabs® for buccal swab collection that are certified sterile , free of amplifiable Human DNA and free of detectable DNase and RNase, specifically designed for Genetic Analysis. COPAN Human DNA Free FLOQSwabs® are non-invasive, painless and cost-effective DNA collection systems, suitable for numerous genetic applications, including: predictive, pharmacogenomics, genomics, HLA typing, diagnostics, tumor markers, metagenomics and DNA profiling.
