DNA fingerprinting completes the patient’s diagnosis to ensure the appropriate personalized treatment
Be DNA Certain™ that lab specimens actually belong to the patient being evaluated. Our DNA Specimen Provenance Assignment (DSPA) testing protects your laboratory across the entire diagnostic testing cycle.
Strand Diagnostics’ DSPA test is a molecular diagnostic test used to definitively assign biopsy specimen identity for cancer and other histopathological conditions to the correct patient. A DNA profile from both the tissue sample (in question) and the patient’s reference sample (taken via buccal swab) are compared to confirm a match. Matching DNA profiles confirms the biopsy results belong to the patient being evaluated.
