Curiosity DNA Testing

In case you do not need a DNA test for a legal matter, but would like a DNA test for your personal knowledge or peace of mind we offer the option of a Curiosity DNA Test by mailing you a HOME DNA KIT or providing you with instructions on how to collect your own DNA samples. Curiosity DNA Tests do not contain any identifying names because they do not follow strict Chain of Custody procedures. Therefore, results from a Curiosity DNA Test will not be accepted by any government agencies or immigration authorities (U.S. Embassies, U.S Consulates or USCIS). If you presume you may need to use the DNA test for something else than your personal knowledge, we encourage you to choose a Legally Admissible DNA Test – that way you will not have to perform another test in the future and incur in an extra expense.

IMPORTANT NOTE THAT APPLIES TO NEW YORK RESIDENTS ONLY:

According to NYSDOH (New York State Department of Health) guidelines, we are NOT able to offer this service for New York state residents. In fact, no laboratory is permitted to perform non-Chain of Custody tests on New York state residents.

DNA TESTING PROCESS FOR CURIOSITY CASES

STEP 1

Call 1-888-362-5228 and provide a name and a mailing address for us to send you a Home DNA Kit. There is a non refundable $100 deposit that goes towards the cost of the test that needs to be paid.

STEP 2

Once you receive the Home DNA Kit, follow the instructions and collect the samples for the participants as well as your own.

STEP 3

Following the instructions in the DNA kit, ship the samples back to our laboratory.

STEP 4

Once the DNA test is completed, we send DNA test results to the corresponding party as indicated in the form the participant will fill out in the DNA kit.

The final report in a non-legally binding / curiosity DNA test does not carry any names. This is because there is no chain of custody procedure during the DNA sample collection process. Therefore, we cannot give faith the samples belong to the participant claimed in the forms. This is why the only purpose of this service is to satisfy your curiosity in regards to a specific relationship. The samples received are identified by the role they play in the test only such as Alleged Father, Mother, Child, Aunt/Uncle, Sibling, among others.

REQUIREMENTS TO INITIATE YOUR CURIOSITY DNA TEST WITH & WITHOUT A HOME DNA KIT

If you want the Home DNA Kit sent to you, we will need a name and address (we will only ship these kit within the U.S.) where the Home DNA Kit is to be sent.

The kit will arrive in a white envelope without any markings and it will contain the supplies needed to collect the DNA samples for all participants in your case, instructions and a form to be filled out with minimal information by the client. Once the samples are collected, the Home DNA Kit and its contents need to be shipped back to our laboratory in a prepaid envelope provided in the kit.

Otherwise, if you do not wish to have a Home DNA Kit sent to your house, you can also fill our Contact Form and request for Instructions on How to Collect Your Own DNA Samples. We will be happy to send you information on how you can collect your own DNA samples using supplies that you can buy on your own in any pharmacy, and then you can package those samples and send them to our laboratory.
