DNA Genotek

The devices are used for collection and stabilization of saliva samples for genetic testing, such as diagnostic testing or direct-to-consumer use.

The multi-year renewal includes DNA Genotek's Oragene-Dx saliva kits and GenoFIND services for custom collection kit packaging and order fulfillment services.

The company's microbiome collection devices will be used to collect samples for the Biobank for Microbiome Research in Massachusetts.

WeGene will use DNA Genotek's saliva DNA collection kits for its genetic testing and personalized healthcare services.

DNA Genotek alleged that Ancestry.com misappropriated its intellectual property related to saliva DNA collection kits.

The consumer genomics firm Helix will use an FDA-cleared device from OraSure's subsidiary DNA Genotek for collecting DNA samples from customers. 

DNA Genotek's Omnigene Gut kit worked just as well as freezing for stabilizing fecal microbiome samples, but at room temperature, according to a new study.

The device, the ORAcollectDx, is an alternative to buccal swabs and provides higher DNA yields, according to the firm.

The kit enables a patient to self-collect high-quality microbial DNA from stool for gut microbiome profiling for use in clinical laboratory and research-use settings.
