DNA Collection and Preservation

In non-legal DNA testing the samples are collected privately and without an established chain of custody. By submitting the sample, the individual has expressed implied consent for analysis of the samples submitted and acknowledges that they have obtained consent from all parties being tested when the samples are submitted.

Samples are collected and stored in 3 separate manners: • Physical Sample: Unprocessed samples received are stored for approximately 2 weeks and are then discarded. • Extracted Sample: Sample DNA that has been extracted from the cellular material is retained for approximately 6 months to 1 year and then is discarded. • Sample Data: The actual DNA profile is kept permanently on our server and back-up server.
