Table 1 DNA yields from blood and saliva

From: Saliva samples are a viable alternative to blood samples as a source of DNA for high throughput genotyping

Sample type Sample volume collected (range)/ml Mean DNA yield (range)/μg Mean yield per ml sample collected (range)/μg
Blood 8 (4–10) 210 (58–577) 26 (6–73)
Saliva 2* 24 (0.2 - 52) 12 (0.1 - 26)
