The inside of the cheek of each person being tested is gently wiped with a soft cotton swab. Because almost every cell in a person’s body contains his or her unique DNA, swabbing a cheek is a safe, easy way to collect the sample. Each sample is then sealed in its own envelope, labeled for identification purposes and sent to our lab for processing.
