Daily, we receive calls with questions asking “What kind of samples can I use to do a DNA test?”

Below we’ve listed the top 5 DNA samples we recommend be submitted to be used for DNA testing purposes!

    5 Recommended DNA Samples

1. Blood
2. Buccal Swab
3. Fingernails
4. Toothbrush
5. Chewing Gum

Tip: When obtaining any of these samples, be sure to preserve the DNA in a paper envelope or a paper bag. DO NOT place samples in a plastic bag, or ziplock bag. Plastic contaminates the sample.
