DNA Banking is the storage of genetic material most commonly extracted from a blood sample and an important first step toward preserving your family’s genetic history.
Documenting disease may be of extreme importance to surviving family members. Preserving a sample of DNA from a family elder may be of future importance in creating a genetic pedigree that can track the transmission of a mutated gene through generations. Once the pedigree is established, it may prove invaluable in early detection and preventive measures for surviving family members.
The cost of banking services is a nominal one time fee and includes indefinite secure storage at a reputable Seattle health care facility. Dr. Wigren can collect the appropriate samples and facilitate immediate delivery to DNA banking services.
