Discreet Alternative Specimen DNA Testing
At My Forever DNA, we understand that 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. Discreet testing is possible using samples such as hair, toothbrushes, fingernail clippings, ear wax swabs, cigarette butts, chewing gum, and much more. Check our complete list of acceptable sources for alternative samples.
There is no additional cost for discreet DNA testing.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: My Forever DNA cannot guarantee there will be a sufficient amount of DNA to obtain results when sending in alternative DNA samples for testing. We will do our very best to provide you with the results. However, the success rate depends on the quality of the alternative DNA sample provided. If any sample has insufficient DNA, a new sample will be requested for an additional fee, and no refund will be applicable. Every additional alternative DNA Sample sent for the same individual will be an additional $60 Fee.
