SecuriGene is a Canadian biotech company that offers DNA Preservation services, allowing you to capture the information contained in anyone’s DNA and store it forever. With stored DNA you can:
- Use it for later DNA testing
- Document hereditary diseases
- Create new opportunities for ancestry testing
- Prevent DNA degradation
- Open doors for personalized medicine
The company claims that DNA prepared by them and stored in their DNA Banking Capsule will last indefinitely.
The company also works with funeral homes to provide a DNALegacy service. The process of collecting DNA must be completed by the funeral home prior to cremation or embalming. The sample is then sent to the SecuriGene laboratories for processing and then is sent back to the family in a preservation capsule along with full lab reports.
