What Can be Used as a Sample?

DNA Tests typically use buccal (cheek) swabs as samples for DNA analysis.

We also accept a variety of non-standard samples that contain cells for DNA testing.

The accuracy of a DNA test does not change depending on the sample type. However, if a sample is in poor condition a result may not be able to be obtained.
