Scheduling a Test
An appointment must be scheduled for all DNA testing. With over
3,000 locations nationwide, it is not necessary for the parties
participating in a DNA test to visit the same facility. In fact, we
can schedule individuals in different cities and states. This will
not affect the accuracy of your results or your ability to use the
results for legal purposes.
We will need the name, relationship and date-of-birth of all
individuals participating in the test, the zip code(s) and a
contact number(s). Also, if there is a specific day and/or time you
are interested in, please let us know and we will do our best to
To schedule testing, you may do one of the following:
Identification needed for testing
Adults must take a photo ID, such as, a driver's license, state
issued ID, military ID, passport, etc., to the facility. Children
must have a photo ID, birth certificate or social security card. If
testing a newborn, a birth certificate or social security card may
not be available. In such cases, it is preferred that the mother or
legal guardian visit the testing facility with the child, provide
their photo ID and the hospital discharge papers.
How samples are collected
Samples are collected via buccal swab, which is the preferred
method of collecting a DNA reference sample. A cotton swab is used
to collect saliva from both the left and right cheeks of all
individuals participating in the test. The buccal swab is
non-invasive and painless for all parties involved. It is much
easier to perform on infants and small children and it is equally
as accurate as any other type of collection.
We provide results verbally, over the phone, in 2 to 3 business
days for paternity/maternity testing and in 3 to 5 business days
for relationship testing. Results times do not include the day of
collection. You will then receive the original documents via
priority mail to the address of your choice. After receiving your
results verbally, please allow approximately 5 days to receive the
original documents. If you need to have additional copies sent from
our office, there will be a fee of $25 per copy.
* The above result times are typical. However, in some cases,
additional testing is required due to a particular individuals DNA.
While this does not happen often, when it does, results could be
delayed several days. This is completely out of our control and has
nothing to do with the collection or testing process. A timely
result is very important to us, however, an accurate result is the

Once an appointment has been scheduled, payment of at least half
must be received no later than 24 hours prior to your scheduled
time. If this amount is not received, your appointment will be made
available to others. The second half of payment is due prior to
receiving your results.
