How to collect a DNA sample
DNA sample collections should be performed exactly according to directions. The DNA sample collector will remove one sterile swab from it's wrapper. Each wrapper will contain 1-2 swabs. The DNA collector will then rub a single swab on the inside cheek of the donor for more than 30 seconds. The sample is invisible and painless. The DNA collector is removing skin from the inside of the donor's mouth. Your skin contains DNA. Your skin naturally sheds and regrows very quickly. The collector is collecting the skin that you would naturally shed. This is not a saliva test.
After completing the process with the first swab the collector places the swab directly into the previously labeled envelope. The DNA collector repeats the process until two to four swabs are collected.The DNA collector repeats the process for each person being tested.
Do Not Mix Samples
DNA Samples from only one individual should be placed in each envelope. Each envelope should have a different persons swabs in it.
