How is the Genetic Test performed?
We employ a painless and non-invasive procedure which does not involve blood when collecting DNA samples from our clients. This simple procedure which takes only a couple of minutes is performed as follows:
Step 1: DNA Sampling
We collect DNA samples by swabbing the inner wall of your cheek with a cotton tip. It is extremely harmless and pain-free!
Step 2: Mail it to us
Place the tube and consent form into the stamped envelope provided and mail it to our sample collection point.
Step 3: Profiling Report
The samples will be tested in our lab and within a month, we will provide you the conclusive DNA test report.
Do I need to take the test again after some time?
Not likely. Genetic conditions are known to be very stable. Your DNA is unlikely to change over his or her lifetime. There is no need to test again for the same attributes.
How long do I have to wait for the results?
The test report will be ready in approximately 30 business days after clients have submitted their sample
