DNA Sample Collection Guide Using Our DNA Testing Kit

When you place your order with easyDNA we will send you our DNA Collection Kit which should arrive within 2 to 3 business days from when your order is confirmed. The kit will contain all you need to do to collect your DNA samples including full instructions. As you will see below taking the samples is a very simple and straightforward procedure.

We recommend that you if you want to know more about the collection process, you should follow these visual instructions carefully. The process needs to be repeared for every individual participating in the test.

Step One:  (view image)
The DNA test kit contains a number of differently coloured envelopes. The kits are usually pre-packed and normally will include two swabs per person for up to three people.

Step Two:  (view image)
On the inside of each envelope you will find a pair of colour coded swabs. The colour of the swabs should be similar to the colour of the envelope they were in.  We recommended not to eat or drink for a minimum of half an hour before you take the oral samples.

Step Three:  (view image)
Fill out the submission forms as well as the details on the outside of the envelope/s making sure everything is filled in clearly and correctly. Please print in block capitals.

Step Four:  (view image)
Remove the swabs from the paper packaging. Be careful not to touch the cotton end of the swab with anything so it remains sterile. There are two swabs provided per each person to be 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. Do this with both of the colour coded swabs per person.

Step Six:  (view image)
Before placing the swab back in the colour coded 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 colour 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.
