Eliminate Sample Misidentification. Confirm Specimen Provenance

DNA Profiling:

  • Unique
  • Reliable
  • Traceable

Test Directly from

  • Slides
  • Aspirates
  • Tissue Blocks

Specimens accepted for DNA profiling:

  • Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue
  • Histological Slides
  • Fresh-frozen tissue
  • Needle aspirate specimens
  • Blood with or without preservative
  • Buccal swabs from patients (reference)

Turn-around Time:

  • Standard: 3-4 business days
  • Expedited: 2-3 business days

The Problem:

Sample mix-up floaters/tissue fragments from different patients on same slide transcription errors incorrect labeling lost labels

The Result:

Possible misdiagnosis

The Solution: verIFI

Match the sample to the patient using DNA-based identity testing

Advantages of DNA testing:

  • DNA profiles are unique
    (except for identical twins)
  • Validated method
  • Fast turn-around time
  • Used worldwide
  • Cost effective
