GenPod LifeStore securely preserves your living DNA and stores your digital DNA. Together.
Here are the steps involved in receiving your GenPod Lifestore:
- Order your GenPod LifeStore and - if you choose - your Whole Genome Sequence.
- Receive a DNA sample collection kit in the mail.
- Follow the instructions for the sample collection.
- Send your sample in to our lab by following the enclosed return shipping instructions.
- We will extract your DNA from your sample and store it in our proprietary patented storage system.
- If you have ordered the Whole Genome Sequence your purified DNA will be sequenced. (This is a very high quality, certified, Whole Genome Sequence (WGS) meaning your entire genome - that's ALL of you - 3 Billion base pairs - so cool! This isn't some low quality, cheap sequence, it is incredibly high quality and done in a CAP/CLIA certified lab - this is why it costs more than the other stuff you see out there. Once you have it though, you'll have it forever.)
- Your purified and preserved DNA sample will be loaded on the GenPod LifeStore.
- If purchased, your sequence file will be loaded on to your GenPod LifeStore along with your preserved DNA sample.
- Your completed GenPod LifeStore is returned to you with everything on board.
- Your DNA sample and the sequence data (if purchased) on GenPod are secure because you have them - not someone else.
- Once you have your GenPod LifeStore, your DNA is out of your body and in a safe place. Now you can use any time you need it.
GenPod LifeStore can be purchased at two different order levels:
Order Level 1: $499 - GenPod LifeStore with purified DNA on board (no DNA sequence file)
Order Level 2: $1899 - GenPod LifeStore with purified DNA on board + your Whole Genome Sequence (WGS) file on-board
Order Level 1
GenPod LifeStore - Order Level 1 includes:
- GenPod LifeStore with:
- 512GB USB 3.0 Premium Data Storage
- Your purified and preserved DNA loaded on board your GenPod LifeStore in our lab. Your purified DNA is locked in a proprietary patented technology called GT-D developed by our technology partner GenTegra. GT-D allows your DNA to remain in the GenPod indefinitely in a dry state at room temperature. If needed, your sample can be re-hydrated (water added) by any qualified lab and used at any time for sequence processes.
- Note: Your Whole Genome Sequence can be run at any time using your purified DNA sample stored on your GenPod LifeStore. Price for sequencing through GENiSYSS at a later time is $1500. This requires that your GenPod LifeStore be sent to GENiSYSS and a portion of your on-board DNA sample will be utilized for the sequence. If you want to ensure that you have adequate DNA sample available for future use, it is recommended that you purchase the Level 2 package. With the Level 2 package you'll pay less for sequencing and it won't use any DNA sample from your GenPod LifeStore.
Order Level 2
GenPod LifeStore - Order Level 2 includes:
- GenPod LifeStore (see specs above in Order Level 1)
- One (1) purified and preserved sample of your DNA loaded on your GenPod in our lab (see details above in Level 1)
- Your high-quality Whole Genome Sequence completed, loaded on your GenPod LifeStore along with your DNA.
When you purchase GenPod LifeStore you also receive the following:
- A kit to collect and submit your DNA sample for processing.
Order GenPod LifeStore - Order Level 1 $499
Order GenPod LifeStore - Order Level 2 $1,899
To allow for the processing of your DNA please allow about 2-3 weeks from the time we receive your sample kit for your GenPod LifeStore to be shipped. If you order Level 2, your sequence (WGS) will be completed once your sample is submitted and processed - allow about 4 - 6 weeks for delivery of your GenPod Life Store in this case.
