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. Non-standard samples submitted for anonymous testing will be processed with the understanding that the submitter bears the legal responsibility of consent for the owner of the sample. Rapid DNA Testing Services serves the right to alter the disposition of remaining specimens. The specimens may be discarded immediately following analysis upon receiving validated consent from the submitter. 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.
