DNA from whole blood or cell-free and circulating DNA can be isolated from human plasma or serum samples to screen for cancer status.
DNA from tissues and cells can be used to study diseases and disorders.
DNA from archived samples can be used to study the genetic basis of diseases and disorders. For example, DNA from archived patient samples can be used to identify genetic mutations associated with cancer, rare genetic diseases, and other conditions.
DNA from frozen blood samples can be used for genetic testing, which can provide information about a person’s risk for certain genetic disorders or diseases. For example, genetic testing can be used to identify mutations associated with cancer, heart disease, and other conditions.
