The DNA Memorial product was specifically engineered for the funeral industry. It recovers a maximum DNA yield through noninvasive mouth swabs even after the embalming process which is a huge advantage over other methods requiring a blood draw. This product was first used to store archaeological DNA samples of badly decomposed human remains in the universities before being available to the general public.
