can you get DNA from dried blood?

Posted by Neoteryx on May 29, 2018 5:27:00 AM

Collecting, storing, and analyzing DNA is a vital part of many medical fields and disciplines. To achieve viable results, regardless of the discipline, there is a need for high-quality and stable samples from which DNA can be extracted. Fresh blood samples are not always viable due to difficulties in collection, transportation, or storage. However, viable and stable DNA samples can also be extracted from dried blood.

Watson and Crick may have had little notion, when they discovered the double helix structure of DNA, how far that molecule would go. In 1985, the uniqueness of each individual's DNA led a British forensic scientist to the identity of a murderer and DNA testing was born. Now the tests are available to anyone. Genetic disorders are the major concerns driving the upsurge in DNA testing. Hundreds of hereditary diseases can be detected and possibly avoided. But you can also find out if that family legend of an Apache ancestor is true.
