The quality  (260/280) and quantity of the extracted sample (DNA) is determined by the use of spectrophotometry. The presence or absence of KIR genes is analysed by PCR technology using sequence-specific primers (SSPs).  The designed SSPs enable the detection of all known 15 human KIR genes plus two pseudo genes. Differentiation between 2DS4del versus 2DS4ins is also possible.  Every KIR typing reaction contains an internal control to ensure validity of the result. PCR products are separated by gel agarose electrophoresis and visualised on a UV table. 

SPECIMEN TYPE: 1 x PERIPHERAL BLOOD /EDTA (Lavender Vacutainer ) (2ml total)

SAMPLE COLLECTION: For collection of blood samples, you should arrange for a healthcare professional to draw the bloods for you according to the instructions, in a licensed medical facility.

Delivery of samples to Locus Medicus should be planned between Monday and Friday but not during the Weekend. Sample collection and pick-up by courier should take place on the same day.

RESULT TURNAROUND TIME: Depending on how busy the lab is, we estimate you will get your results within 5-10 business days from the day your sample reach us
