5. COLLECTION OF BLOOD SAMPLES OUTSIDE THE DNA ANALYSIS LABORATORY

Blood samples may be collected by a licensed medical personnel from other hospitals/laboratories according to guidelines stipulated by the UP-NSRI-DNA Analysis Laboratory. A laboratory sampling form (Form 002) must be properly filled up and sent along with the samples.

Sampling is done as follows: 3cc should be collected from all persons to be tested and placed in a vacutainer tube with EDTA (purple cover: available in leading drugstores). After collection, samples should be kept cold and sent immediately to the laboratory (within 24 hours). Staff of the DNA Analysis Laboratory must be informed of the projected arrival details of the samples. This will ensure the immediate processing of samples upon arrival at UP.

To facilitate the complete analysis of the case, clients should also make sure that all documents (Form 001: Request Form, Form 002: Sampling Form and Undertaking) are properly filled up and payments settled. Results are only released upon completion of all requirements stipulated in this guideline.
