DNA Genotek Inc. Announces Spit for Africa Program
Date:5/16/2013

Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

DNA Genotek, a leading provider of products for biological sample collection, today announced ‘Spit for Africa’, a sponsorship program in conjunction with the African Society of Human Genetics (AfSHG). Spit for Africa is designed to improve access and reduce the cost of DNA collection for locally and internationally funded genomic projects such as the Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3 Africa) Initiative and to facilitate growth in membership of the AfSHG.

The aim of the AfSHG is to build the capacity of African researchers and institutions and create an infrastructure that can support and sustain that capacity. AfSHG is an active participant in H3 Africa which supports population-based genetic studies in Africa of common, non-communicable disorders such as heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease, as well as communicable diseases such as trypanosomiasis and streptococcal infections.

The Spit for Africa program has three main objectives:

1.    Provide a long-term health impact on the African population and cover a diverse range of health issues;
2.    Accelerate research and advance the fight against disease;
3.    Apply technology to break down barriers that impede DNA sample collection.

Under the Spit for Africa program, DNA Genotek will donate $1.00USD for every Oragene.DNA collection kit sold to African funded research projects back to the AfSHG to help support member activities. In addition, all purchases of Oragene.DNA collection kits for African funded projects will receive discounted pricing to maximize the value of the research budget. In order to take advantage of the Spi
