Can I Send Something Other Than A Mouth Swab For Paternity Testing?

Category: Paternity Testing

Yes! Cheek-swab samples are the industry standard for this type of test. Cheek swabs make DNA extraction by our lab’s robots easy, which is one way to keep costs lower for our customers.

If you want to submit an alternative DNA sample such as toothbrush, ear wax on swabs, or fingernail clippings, please keep in mind there is a non-refundable fee of $100 required to test a sample’s viability prior to testing.
