How Our Testing Process Works

Order your test online or call us at (866) 866-0879. The following information is needed to complete your order: a. Name of test subject, their date of birth, and any Case/FCO numbers as well as contact details b. The address where the DNA report should be delivered.
You can expect secure shipment of each of your DNA Collection Kits. Rapid Screening Center will provide the local collections site(s) with all the necessary details for each person participating in the test. All DNA Collection Kits will be securely shipped and bar coded.
Each contributor will be contacted by our staff after the completion of your order and will be provided with collection site details. Scheduling times will also be discussed with each person participating in the test.
Results are given after collection has been completed and all DNA kits have successfully been returned. Paternity/maternity test results can be released in as little as 3-7 business days. For sibling and cases of higher complexity, you can expect results in 10-14 business days.

Discreet Sampling

  • Clothing
  • Ear wax
  • Blood & Urine
  • Hair
  • Cigarette butts
  • Glass, paper or plastic
  • Nail clippings
  • Licked stamps

Fast, Easy & Painless

If a court admissible test is required, collecting a DNA samples for analysis is painless, easy and can be performed at a collection site, or just at home if the results will be used privately.

Taking samples yourself is simple. All you will need is a sterile Q-tip. Rub the swab gently on the inside of your cheek for 30 seconds, place the swab in an envelope and send it to the lab. Once the lab receives the sample, they will evaluate it and provide results in approximately two to three business days.

If you want results faster, express options are available.

Highly Accurate

Across the DNA testing industry, paternity tests are usually performed on samples with between 4 and 43 markers.

Our tests provide greater than 99.999% accuracy and use 16 genetic markers. In some cases, a more complex test is required and in that instance we can provide a 21 marker test that is more accurate.

Test at Home

The easy-to-use discreet DNA test can match unique DNA samples like razors or clothing to the standard cheek cell swab sample.

  • Perfect for situations where a cheek swab cannot be used for DNA testing
  • Several types of samples can be used including: chewing gum, razors, hair roots, or licked envelopes
  • Duplicate testing is completed to ensure the highest quality results found worldwide

When you need to know for sure if two people are related and it’s not possible to obtain a mouth swab sample, we can help. As long as everyone being tested gives their consent, our state-of-the -art testing techniques can take samples from common things found around the home. A razor, a licked envelope, a piece of chewing gum, or hair roots from a hairbrush are just some of the options you can use to find samples of DNA.

At Rapid Screenings, we have more than seven years of experience in DNA testing and can gather samples from a large number of objects.

Simple & Private

A discreet DNA test from Rapid Screenings is easy to take from the privacy of your own home. Simply collect the sample by swabbing the cheek. It is painless and discrete, and takes just a few minutes to gather.

A sample needs to be taken from both people in question. If you are unable to perform the cheek swab test, you can identify a different type of sample to be tested on the order form.

You can send samples in an envelope or a paper bag. Please ensure that all samples are completely dry before putting them into a bag, and then send the samples to DNA Lab Network. Depending on the type of sample and the complexity of the test, we will send you your results in 2-6 weeks, in some cases even sooner.

We ensure that your paternity test is accurate by independently running every test twice. Discreet DNA uses most accurate methods available, using 16 genetic markers to provide the highest level of accuracy.
