Molecular genetic analysis of Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY) genes

  1. 5-10 ml of venous blood can be collected at any time of the day in 2 tubes
    containing EDTA. After collection the tubes have to be shaken well. Samples
    should be labelled with name of the patient and date of birth. Additionally 2 ml
    of fasting and post prandial serum sample may be collected and labelled.
  2. The labelling should be wrapped around by a transparent scotch tape to protect
     it being erased in case of leakage.
  3. The samples can be kept in the fridge (4 degrees) for a day or two and need
     to be kept frozen (-20 degrees) after that period.
  4. Blood and serum tubes should be sent in a package with wrapping and on dry
    ice to ensure samples do not thaw during shipment.
  5. Samples from both parents and siblings are to be included whenever possible –
    whether affected or unaffected.
