Reasons for delays

Sibling studies require hand calculations (3-4 weeks)
Twin Studies require hand calculations (2-3 weeks)
Incomplete authorization form sent in with samples (missing information)
Test results had single or double exclusion (must be at least 3 to be released) caused by mutated gene or close relationship between alleged fathers
Gel failure (must rerun test)
Unusual sample (hair, gum, etc.)
Unknown race which causes the results to be hand calculated
Related alleged fathers usually result in additional testing
There is always a risk, though slight, of a sample not containing enough DNA for the test. This is due to collection error or the clients’ mouth’s conditions (dry mouth, excessive tobacco usage, etc.).  We will send you another collection kit at no charge.
