DNA Sample Collection Guide Using the DNA Home Test Kit

Once you confirm your order, a DNA test kit will be immediately sent to you and should be received within 2 to 4 business days. As you will see below, the DNA testing kit contains everything you require to perform your DNA sample collection including  a comprehensive set of instructions. 

To see just how simple the process is using our DNA test kit, we recommend that you review the visual instructions below. The whole process is to be repeated for every person to be tested.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step One:  (view image)
Inside the kit you will find a number of colored envelopes. Each envelope is to be used for one person. Normally the kit contains enough swabs for testing 3 people. Inside the kit you will also find the submission form that you need to fill out as well as detailed instructions.

Step Two:  (view image)
Inside each envelope is a set of colour coded swabs. These swabs are the same colour as the envelope they come in.  It is recommended not to eat, drink or smoke at least half an hour before an oral sample is taken

Step Three:  (view image)
Using block capitals if possible, proceed to fill out the details requested on the label outside of the envelope ensuring that all the correct information is filled in clearly. Also proceed to fill in the submission form in the same manner. PLEASE ENSURE THE INFORMATION IS CLEAR AND LEGIBLE.

Step Four:  (view image)
Open the sterile packaging containing the swabs and remove them paying attention NOT to touch the cotton part of the swab to avoid contamination. Each envelope should contain two swabs which are to be used for each person tested.

Step Five:  (view image)
Rub the cotton end of the swab along the inside of your cheek, under your tongue and behind your lips as well. Do this for 10 seconds per person. Remember you are collecting cheek cells and not just saliva, so rub right against the inside of the cheek. 

Step Six:  (view image)
Before placing the swab back in the coloured envelope allow the swab a MINIMUM of 1 hour to dry. Place the swab somewhere that the end of the swab is not touching anything else. When dry place the swabs back in the coloured coded envelope. Do NOT touch the end of the swab at anytime, even to check if it is dry.

Step Seven:  (view image)
Place the colour coded envelopes into the easyDNA self addressed envelope with your submission form and send back to easyDNA for processing. Please remember to affix a postage stamp.

Tips

  • To allow your swabs to dry place them cotton-end up in a clean empty glass. Put the glass in a safe, clean area, allowing the swabs time to dry. Always ensure that you do not mix up or contaminate the swabs, keep swabs from different participants in a separate glass.
     
  • Sample collection can be performed at any age including newborn babies.
