PPMD’s Decode Duchenne Program:

How can I obtain a shipping kit?

Simply email decode@parentprojectmd.org. Please indicate the following:

  • Recipient Name
  • Recipient Address
  • Number of kits needed and type
    • Blood, Saliva or Dried Blood Spot

What is included in the kit?

  • Blood specimen shipping kits contain a purple-top EDTA tube for collecting blood, packaging materials and box, and a prepaid return shipping label addressed to PerkinElmer Genetics.
  • Saliva specimen shipping kits contain a check swab collection tube, packaging materials and box, and a prepaid return label addressed to PerkinElmer Genetics.
  • Dried blood spot shipping kits contain a lancet device for the puncture site, paper collection card, and an envelope with a prepaid return label addressed to PerkinElmer Genetics.

What will I need that isn’t inside the kit?

Every sample sent to PerkinElmer Genetics must include a Decode Duchenne test requisition and informed consent, which is provided after the participant’s application is received. Contact us if you are in need of this form.
