To perform a genetic test in Oncogene Diagnostics it is necessary to provide a biological material, from which the DNA can be obtained.
1. Venous blood (1-5mL of blood collected into a morphologic test tube with the EDTA anticoagulant). The patient is not required to fast. Using blood samples for testing is impermissible up to 3 months after blood transfusion and after bone marrow transplantation (in this case it is recommended to test other tissue – for example mouth swab).
2. Mouth swab collection for molecular testing. The mouth swab must be collected with a dedicated mouth swab stick from the entire surface of both cheeks. Before the swab, the patient should rinse their mouth with water and should not take food for at least 2 hours.
