DNA Genotek Sample Collection Kit Selected by Prometheus for MyCeliacID™ Genetic Test
Date:8/18/2009

DNA Genotek announced that its Oragene®•DNA product has been selected by Prometheus as the sample collection kit for MyCeliacID™ a saliva-based genetic test dedicated to celiac disease. Oragene•DNA is ideal for this type of genetic testing service as it solves sample collection challenges inherent with traditional collection methods which are often too costly and invasive.

Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) August 18, 2009 -- DNA Genotek, a leading provider of superior biological sample products, today announced that its Oragene®•DNA product has been selected by Prometheus as the sample collection kit for MyCeliacID™, the first saliva-based genetic test dedicated to celiac disease.

MyCeliacID is a highly specialized DNA test that detects genes specific to celiac disease (DQ2/DQ8) and provides an estimate of an individual's risk of developing the disease. Celiac disease affects nearly 3 million Americans but only about 100,000 are diagnosed. Diagnosis of celiac disease can be challenging since symptoms may seem like many different diseases. Laboratory tests may help doctors diagnose the disease so that patients can take steps to manage their diet and prevent complications.

MyCeliacID is available in most parts of the U.S., Canada and Mexico and can be ordered online at www.MyCeliacID.com. In order to complete the test, a MyCeliacID kit, which includes the Oragene•DNA sample collection device, is sent to an individual's home where they provide a small saliva sample and return the sample via mail to Prometheus' CLIA certified lab for
