How do I use the DNA swabs?

Here are directions for using a cheek scraper:

  1. Wait at least one hour after eating or drinking.
  2. Wash your hands.
  3. Remove the scraper from the packaging.
  4. Insert the swab end of the scraper into your mouth. Hold the scraper at the opposite end.
  5. Rub the swab end of the scraper on the inside of your cheek. You may rub up and down, back and forth, or in circles. You may change the direction you rub at any time. Be sure that the part you are rubbing against your cheek is the swab rather than the plastic rod behind it.
  6. Rub gently for about a minute. You may rub for 30 seconds in one cheek and then 30 seconds in the other.
  7. Once the minute is up, remove the scraper from your mouth.
  8. Open one of the vials by twisting off the cap. Set it upright so that the liquid inside does not spill out.
  9. Insert the swab end of the scraper into the vial.
  10. Hold the scraper in the middle and push down on the handle end. This will push out the swab so that it is loose in the vial.
  11. Twist the vial’s cap shut. Please be sure that it is shut tightly so that it will not leak. You may throw away the scraper handle.

How do I use the DNA swabs

You should wait at least 4 hours before performing the second scraping. Many people prefer to swab on two consecutive days. This gives your cheeks time to recover. The time you spend on obtaining high quality swabs ensures great results and plentiful stored DNA sample for years to come.

Note: If you wear dentures or have a condition that causes excessive dry mouth, we highly recommend you swab first thing upon waking before eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.  Use one swab on one cheek and one swab on the other cheek with the above directions. This will increase your chances of a high quality swab for testing.
