Selecting the Appropriate Sample Type

Complimentary Follow-Up Studies for Unknown Variants

As a non-profit organization, Mitomed offers additional studies without charge if needed to ensure that the results we provide are of the highest quality and diagnostic utility. If necessary, we offer complimentary studies in additional tissue types or family studies to determine if a genetic variant tracks with symptoms in the family tree.

Complimentary Haplogroup Analysis

Haplogroup analysis is included as a complimentary service when full mitochondrial sequencing is performed. Mitomed is able to draw on the extensive knowledge of Dr. Wallace and other population genetics experts in our group to assess potential interactions between the haplogroup background of your patient and mtDNA variants.

Post-mitotic tissues confer a higher detection rate for mitochondrial DNA mutations than blood samples. Muscle or tissue samples are, therefore, strongly preferred for the majority of mitochondrial DNA assays. Blood samples will be accepted if a tissue sample is not available.
