Important – Please Read!

Please bookmark this page as it contains important information about your DNA test process and you may wish to refer back to it from time to time.

We appreciate your trust in allowing us to help you get the answers you need through DNA testing.

We strongly encourage you to add to your email address book. This will help to make certain you receive communication from us and that our emails do not go into your spam or junk folder. All communication about your case will be done through email for privacy reasons. If you believe you should have received an email from us, please check your spam or junk mail folder. Step-by-step instructions on how to whitelist an email address can be found by searching using your favorite Internet search engine.

If you have completed your payment, here is what you can expect next:

1. If your testing kit was ordered before 3:00 PM (EST) on a regular business day, in most cases it will be mailed to you via USPS Priority mail the same day. If the kit was ordered after 3:00 PM (EST) it will be shipped to you the next business day. Orders that are placed on Friday after 3:00 PM (EST), Saturdays or Sundays, or on holidays, will be shipped the next business day. Your kit should arrive in 2-3 business days, in most cases, for those within the USA, and 6-10 business days for USPS International Priority shipments. You will be provided a tracking number for your kit by email by the USPS. If you do not see this email in one business day after the kit is scheduled to ship to you, please check you junk or spam folder.  Please use this USPS tracking number to determine when your DNA collection kit will arrive.

If you chose the Make Your Own Kit option you will receive an email within 24 hours (during regular business hours) with your case number, instructions, and the address to return your samples to. Make Your Own Kit orders are not processed until the order form is reviewed. If you do not see this email after the 24 hours, please check your spam/junk folder prior to submitting a support ticket.

2. Once you receive your kit we encourage you to complete the testing sooner rather than later. While you have up to 90 from the date of your order to return your samples for testing, we want to make certain that the samples do not lose integrity. And remember, please do not put the DNA samples into a plastic container or plastic bag for storage.

3. You will have access to a private client page once all of the DNA samples being tested arrive at the lab. You will receive an email notification that you may view your page using your email address and the password you provided on the order form. Please note that the login is case sensitive.

Access to the secure client portal may be found by Clicking Here or selecting Client Results on the website menu.  You will not be able to login to your client page until after the samples have been received by the lab. Our staff is unable to check the status of individual cases/samples to see if they have arrived as hundreds of samples arrive at the lab every day.

Information will show on your client page as the samples having been received, and you will receive an approximate due date for the results, once ALL samples ordered and all necessary documents included in your kit, arrive at the lab. If you are not sending in DNA samples for anyone listed on the order form, or you wish to change the name of those testing, you must complete a Support Ticket with this information PRIOR to sending in your DNA samples. You may complete a Support Ticket by clicking HERE.

Testing begins the next business day after receiving all samples, in most cases. The usual processing time is 1 – 5 business days depending on the type of test you ordered. If you have ordered a test with one day processing, the results will be released the next business day by 8:00 PM PST once testing has begun. One day processing is not guaranteed for non-standard (anything other than a mouth swab) samples as a viability test must be performed on the DNA sample prior to regular testing, although every effort will be made to complete the testing within one business day..

4. If you ordered a DNA kit, and reside within the United Stated, you will be provided a prepaid return mailer to allow you to return the DNA samples to the lab.

Please note: Bio-Gene DNA has the responsibility to send your kit(s) to you at the address or addresses indicated on the order form, and to make certain testing is completed, and results are posted after all samples have arrived at the lab. The responsibility to make certain the DNA samples arrive at the lab is the responsibility of the person ordering the test. We strongly suggest you record the tracking number of your return mailer to determine if the samples sent have arrived. Bio-Gene DNA does not record the tracking numbers on the return mailers. Please remember that if samples are sent in from different locations, you will not be notified until ALL samples have arrived.

5. The person ordering the test will be notified by e-mail that the test results are ready to be viewed online through the secure client portal. The email address and password provided at the time of order will be required.  It is the responsibility of the ordering party to record and remember this information, as our staff does not have access to the password listed for security reasons.

6. If you ordered a test that requires a third party collection, such as a legal paternity or family relationship test, you will be provided with a suggested collection center(s) from our testing laboratory’s database according the shipping zip code you provided. Please remember that, per the Terms and Conditions agreed to at the time of your order, the final responsibility of having the collection performed properly is yours, along with any additional costs that the collector may require for the collection of the DNA sample(s), belongs to the ordering party.

7. Your results are written in a way that is easy to understand. We have provided a link to a guide as to how to read them on your client page. If, after reviewing them, you have any questions then please complete a Support Ticket. This link may also be found on your private client page. Responses will only be made to questions made from the email address associated with your account.

8. ALL communication regarding a current case or order needs to be made through our support ticket process. We make every effort to answer all support tickets in the order they are received within 24 hours, during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, excluding holidays). If you call to discuss the case or have questions concerning a current or former case, you will be referred to the support page to complete a support ticket. Our privacy policy does not allow us to discuss active or closed cases over the phone. There are a couple of reasons for this:

  1. We ONLY communicate about the case with the person who ordered the case. By answering your questions via email, through our support ticket system to the email provided on the order form, it allows us to greatly reduce the chance that someone who does not have permission to talk about the case receives any information;
  2. We attach written support tickets to your case file. This allows us to refer back to any questions you may have asked earlier, and try to make certain they are addressed throughout this process. This also helps to provide us a quicker way to respond and answer all your questions. Please note that this is email however, and while many of us are used to texting, email does take longer to respond to.

If you submit a support ticket and do not see a response within the 24 hours please check your spam/junk mail folder in case it was sent there by mistake.

Remember: this is to ensure confidentiality and privacy concerning your case. We are unable to make exceptions to this policy.

We thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey to truth through DNA science and technology.
