Beginning today and ending Monday night, April 22nd, at midnight, Family Tree DNA will be having an extensive DNA Day Sale. Of note, both mitochondrial Full Sequence and Family Finder upgrades will be included, which seldom happens. Family Tree DNA is taking this opportunity as well to announce technology upgrades in their sequenceing equipment.
If you have been considering either, this is a great sale and a good time to order these tests. Family Tree DNA’s announcement to project administrators today is provided below.
|SPECIAL DNA DAY REDUCED PRICING|
|We are pleased to announce our 2013 DNA DAY Promotion.While the special pricing features all the major tests, we’re placing particular emphasis on the Full Mitochondrial Sequence and Family Finder. We’ll offer Y-DNA upgrades during a Father’s Day sale and will give you those details at that time.By carefully choosing the sale options and limiting the length of the sale, we will be better able to focus our resources on processing the tests efficiently and avoiding delays in delivering results.
We are proud to announce we have successfully moved our mtDNA Full Sequencing line from Sanger DNA sequencing to what is called Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). This gives us much greater capacity to process tests, to reduce costs without sacrificing quality, and to ensure shorter turnaround times.
We must run the entire sequence every time we process an mtDNA full sequence test, even for upgrades. However, in recognition of your prior investment- and National DNA Day – we’re offering our lowest price ever for the FMS and upgrades.
Rather than the 8-10 weeks first generation sequencing required, we expect results to be completed within 5-6 weeks. This does depend on the number of orders received though. If their DNA is already at our lab, those who order first may expect even shorter turnaround times.
For a limited time we will be selling the FMS for $189 and whether you’ve tested HVR1 or HVR1+2, you’ll be able to upgrade to the Full Sequence for just $129!
In addition, we are also lowering the Family Finder to $169 for this sale!
Here is the list of all tests under the promotion:
Full MtDNA Sequence…. $189
The sale will begin tonight, April 18th, at 6PM CDT and will conclude at 11:59PM CDT on Monday April 22nd. All orders must be placed and paid for by the end of the sale to receive the promotional price.
There will be no need for a coupon – all prices will be automatically adjusted on the website.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT
