When you order a work, HELYS sends you a mouth swab kit so you can take the sample for your picture.
The sample is taken with a sterile swap packaged a plastic sleeve. The swab can only be used by a single customer to take a sample of his own DNA. A unique identification number is printed on the sleeve. This number is used to trace the sample throughout the entire manufacturing process of your picture.
Since DNA is present in each body cell, it can be extracted from cells in an individual's saliva and analysed to create a work of art.
Our kit contains everything you need for your sample.
