DNA Storage with DNA Spectrum: A Top Emerging Health Trend for 2014
Date:12/3/2013

plans starting as low as $2 per month.

“DNA storage has only recently become a desirable and indispensable service in the eyes of consumers,” says Paul Yates, CEO, DNA Spectrum. “American consumers are demanding more and more to be placed in charge not only of their health decisions but to have actual control of their unique DNA in the form of a reference specimen for the future.”

“Without the availability of our genetic storage, the answers hidden inside our DNA are lost at the end of life,” adds Yates. “myDNA Safe preserves that unique genetic code for designated family members and may hold answers for generations to come. It’s a kind of insurance policy that captures and ‘files’ a valid biological specimen against any new contingencies that may arise in this fast-paced, constantly changing arena. Your DNA begins to disintegrate when you die, and unless you preserve it scientifically and securely, there will soon be no trace of the unique code of life that identifies you during your lifetime.”

Access to stored DNA samples is invaluable in certain emergencies. Forensic DNA matching can be completed in just a few hours and is often used in cases involving missing children and adults. Military families who want to easily identify their loved ones who sacrificed their lives on the battlefield and preserve their memories can also make use of DNA storage.

“Storing DNA is also helpful in establishing a family's medical history,” says Yates. “Most diseases run in families. The more DNA specimens you have from family members, the more knowledge you accumulate in managing your own health. Answers to battling cancer, eradicating genetic disorders and delaying age-related diseases are contained within DNA. Individuals with secure copies of their genome will be ready to take advantage of technological advances and new gene therapies.”

Unless you have your DNA in a stable, long-term medium with ready access, you may not be abl
