We will always recommend an appointment for your DNA test. But, there are times when this is not possible. As a result, we have a range of Home DNA Test Kits. These are available through Boots.com and also our own online store.
Our online store provides the actual DNA Test kit for free. Also, there are many options for the number of test participants you need testing. This includes a combination of number of children and potential fathers.
Once you order your DNA test kit, there is no payment due. We will send your kit by first class post. Next, when you receive your kit, follow the instructions on how to collect your samples and complete the paperwork. Then, send this back to us in the pre-paid envelope with your payment.
After this, when we receive your samples, we will acknowledge receipt. Your samples will be analysed in a UK laboratory to UKAS 17025 standards. This means your samples are tested under the same conditions as legal DNA testing. But, it is important to note that you can’t use self-collection kits such as these for legal purposes.
Finally, we will send your DNA test results by secure email or post. The whole testing process only takes 3 to 5 working days. We aim to always achieve closer to 3 working days.
Remember, our Clinical Advisor team is always on hand to provide support and advice. Also, this includes any technical questions you might have about your report.
