How to collect your dna

 Easy Step-by-Step Instructions to Collect Your DNA Sample


Avoid eating, drinking, gum, and nicotine 30 minutes prior to saliva collection via buccal swab for your True Blueprint Genetics Test.


Step 1: With clean hands, carefully remove the swab from the package. Important: Hold the swab by the handle. If opening a wet swab, keep the tube with blue liquid upright to avoid spilling.  


Step 2: Insert the swab into one side of the mouth and firmly rub up and down against the inside of the cheek and gums for 30 to 60 seconds. 


Step 3: Remove the swab from mouth, being careful not to touch teeth, tongue or other surfaces. Place the swab back inside its tube and close. Write your name and date-of-birth on the blank white label, on the outside of the tube.


Repeat steps 1-3 for all additional swabs. Important: Alternate sides of the mouth your collecting from, for each consecutive swab. 


Place all sealed tubes into the provided plastic specimen bag and close. Ship bag back using the provided shipping label.
