How to Submit Samples

Sample requirements

We recommend sending us frozen primary samples, e.g. whole blood or fresh frozen tissue samples.

This allows for preparation of high quality DNA, which is the analyzed substance for our qPCR immune monitoring service. We also accept PMBC, isolated genomic DNA, as well as embedded tissue slices.

For detailed information in regard to sample inputs and shipment instructions, please refer to our Guideline for Collecting and Packing Clinical Samples.

Please contact us with any questions regarding sample requirements or arrangements for sample shipment.
