Consent Document for Storage of DNA Sample
Uses and Storage
Why your sample is stored: The College of American Pathologists (CAP) requires the storage period to be at least 1 year. CAP accredited ensures your test results are meeting and exceeding industry standards for clinical laboratory testing. Sample retention is a requirement by our third-party lab as retesting of the samples may be needed.
How it’s secured: The laboratory is inside a gated facility and monitored 24/7 by security. The laboratory itself is secured by fingerprint and ID authentication. The lab’s IT service provider provides encryption and weekly maintenance of access points.
