When Will I Get My Grandparent Test Results?
Once the laboratory has received all the grandparent DNA test specimens that will be tested, we will notify you they have been received and that testing has started. DNA Grandparent test results are usually available in 2 business days, although they can be ready as soon as 1 business day in some cases. While uncommon, there are some circumstances that may case a slight delay in this time frame. A delay may occur if:
- extended testing is needed to examine more genetic markers (this does not happen often);
- you have sent something other than a mouth swab for DNA testing which requires a viability test before regular testing can begin.
Our paternity test with a grandparent is always run twice to confirm the DNA results before the report is issued. Your DNA results are reviewed, and approved, by a Ph.D., who is required to sign the report. It is only after all of this that the report is sent to you. A report that is not reviewed, or signed, by a Ph.D. in genetics, whether for private results or a court ordered test, is something we will not provide and we would not trust those results.
The report with the probability for the grandparent and grandchild biological relationship will be 100% accurate. We do not guarantee a specific result, only accurate ones. You should be prepared that these results may prove, or disprove, a grandparent and grandchild relationship.
Your results will be sent to the email address on your order form in a .pdf format. All reports are written in easy to understand language. If you want a permanent copy of the report, you can either print the .pdf copy, or you may order a printed copy mailed to you when you place your order.
