Across a multitude of genomic assays, scientists begin with sample collection. Whether their analyte is destined for genotyping, microarrays, or high throughput sequencing, researchers can benefit from saliva samples, which offer compatibility to and advantages over blood samples for many DNA analysis applications.

In this webinar brought to you by DNA Genotek Inc., Mike Tayeb will discuss best practices for working with saliva-derived DNA samples, from pre-analytical processing to result optimization, and Masita Arip will discuss sample type insights from Stem Cell Transplantation: Maximizing HLA-Match Accuracy Using Saliva-Derived DNA.

Topics to be covered 

  • Optimizing pre-analytical processing for reliable saliva samples
  • Assessing quality control measures, including DNA yield, integrity, and quality
  • Common challenges and solutions for working with oral samples, including comparing collection methods, DNA extraction best practices, compatibility with common extraction methods, preparing extracted DNA for downstream applications, comparability to blood samples, and manual and automated extraction workflows and efficiencies
  • Stem Cell Transplantation: Maximizing HLA-Match Accuracy Using Saliva-Derived DNA, including goals of the Malaysian Stem Cell Registry, populations, protocols, data collection and analysis, sample type rationales, and how sample collection methods affect Registry outcomes
