Buccal cells are one of the most common sample types used to obtain genetic information. Buccal cells are collected by swabbing the inside of a person’s cheek. The cells contained on the swab are then lysed, releasing genomic DNA that can be purified and analyzed.
As with blood samples, buccal swabs have become a standard sample type for genotyping applications in the field of pharmacogenomics. The emergence of pharmacogenomic centers of excellence has resulted in an increasing need for purification of high-quality genomic DNA from buccal swabs. We offer kits optimized for the recovery of DNA from these informative samples.
