Simple, painless, non-invasive sample collection is used for our tests. DNA collection is self-performed in the comfort of your own home using either standard buccal swabs or simple saliva collection. For buccal swabs, the sample is collected by gently rubbing cheek (buccal) cells from the inside of the mouth using a soft sponge supplied by Exceed MDx. For saliva (our standard procedure), the sample is collected by simply spitting into a collection device supplied by Exceed MDx. Following sample collection and preservation, the tube containing the preserved sample is shipped in the supplied shipping envelop to Exceed MDx where the test will be carried out. Since sample collection is home-based, the test is not considered legal. Please visit our Specimen Requirements page for additional information.
There is no age limit for running the tests. Samples can be collected from infants and newborns by collecting their saliva sample or buccal swab sample. Please inform us while ordering your sample to provide the proper tools for sample collection from newborns.
Samples can be collected from individuals in different places or countries, as there is no need to have the individuals at the same place together to perform sample collection. Furthermore, the collected sample is stable for years and can be maintained until all the remaining individual(s) complete the sample collection process if required.
