Mother's Blood Sample Collection:
A safe blood draw from the pregnant mother's arm (venipuncture) should be performed at Clinics or by a professional medical assistant (nurse/phlebotomist). All blood sample should be collected with special cell-free preservation collection tubes (from Streck, Roche or Vangenes) for transportation.
If you need to find a possible clinic site on your end for blood specimen collection, please contact us for assistance.
