Discreet DNA Testing Using Alternative DNA Samples
We understand some situations require secret DNA testing. For those who want to test an individual without asking for a cheek swab, there are several alternative ways to gather a sample, such as a toothbrush DNA test. View our complete list of acceptable sources for alternative samples below.
Simply purchase any of our DNA test kits and provide an alternative sample for one or more of the individuals being tested. It is acceptable to send an alternative sample for one individual and a standard cheek swab for the other person being tested.
