Molecular genetic analysis of Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY) genes
5-10 ml of venous blood can be collected at any time of the day in 2 tubes containing EDTA. After collection the tubes have to be shaken well. Samples should be labelled with name of the patient and date of birth. Additionally 2 ml of fasting and post prandial serum sample may be collected and labelled.
The labelling should be wrapped around by a transparent scotch tape to protect it being erased in case of leakage.
The samples can be kept in the fridge (4 degrees) for a day or two and need to be kept frozen (-20 degrees) after that period.
Blood and serum tubes should be sent in a package with wrapping and on dry ice to ensure samples do not thaw during shipment.
Samples from both parents and siblings are to be included whenever possible – whether affected or unaffected.
Please Fill the Neonatal/MODY Registration form before sending samples. Send samples to: Genetic Analysis Department, Madras Diabetes Research Foundation, 4, Conran Smith Road, Gopalapuram, Chennai-600086, India. Tel. +91 43968888 extn 8285/ +91 47405900 Emergency Contacts :
