Carry the Family DNA With You Wherever You Go: Great Idea?

The handy, dandy Genealogy Storage Kit, which is a biological sample collection and storage kit, can be transported as easily as if it were a pencil case in a school bag. US Patent# 6779665 dates back to 2004 and it is not known how profoundly or insignificantly its presence affected the sale of cremation urns. The kit includes quite a few sample storage devices which are designed to fit in the compartments, identification devices and a housing, which includes a base portion and a lid, both of which form an interior cavity for accommodating the sample storage devices.

 

 

The Genealogy Storage Kit is convenient for some, as you never know at what moment in time you may want your DNA tested against someone else’s. Why not be prepared should such a thing happen? Why have to go to home or to some lab to do it? Be a boy scout and be prepared all the time. You might also want to be the first on your block to know how to do this. Hurry, because the supply won’t last.

DNA has captured the attention of scientists and inventors alike. Consider “Top Ten Inventions of 2008” and check out the blurb on ‘DNA 23 and Me’. While reading, don’t forget “Yikes! Kids Can Use Kit to Extract DNA!"

As far as the Genealogy Storage Kit is concerned, I think I will pass. I have relatives I would just as soon forget and I would like to keep it that way!

DNA storage kit

A little impractical isn't it? Presumably you won't just be picking people at random, or what would be the point? DNA testing is useful for finding distant relatives I suppose but other than that, what else can it do unless all results are stored in a central, searchable location.

 Truth be told, it's not only impractical as you suggest, it s also rather silly, which is why i wrote about it.

Thansk so much for your comment. 

 

Happy Patent,
