Bio-Gene DNA Testing allows you the option to make your own testing kit when collecting and returning DNA samples to us. This option can save money on shipping a DNA kit to you, as well as save you time as you can ship directly to us without waiting for the testing kit to arrive.
To choose this option please select the “Make My Own Kit” option on the order form for the particular test you are seeking. You will find the order form on the information page for that particular test. For example, paternity test order forms are found on the paternity page, sibling order forms are found on the sibling page, and so on.
Upon finalization of your order (during regular business hours) you will be e-mailed a submission letter with your unique Bio-Gene DNA case number and the address for mailing your samples. The processing of the samples is conducted in the same time frame as if you used one of our kits – in as little as 1 business days for paternity, maternity, sibling, grandparent, avuncular, and twin zygosity tests!
Non-standard samples being submitted must fit into a standard envelope. If necessary please trim the item to fit (for example a hat band, a piece of clothing with blood, etc) into a regular envelope while making certain the specific area to be tested is included.
DO NOT USE A PLASTIC BAG OR BAGGIE FOR STORAGE OF YOUR DNA SAMPLE. THIS MAY CAUSE THE SAMPLE TO DEGRADE OR A PROFILE NOT BE ABLE TO BE GENERATED. LAB FEES WILL STILL APPLY AS EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO EXTRACT ENOUGH DNA FOR TESTING.
It is strongly suggested that if you reside outside of the United States and wish to order DNA testing that you use this option as the most cost effective and time efficient method to get the answers you need and deserve.
Please note that we are unable to process any DNA samples without a Bio-Gene DNA case number. Samples that arrive without a case number will be discarded.
