Submission of Forensic DNA Samples

GenQuest accepts buccal (cheek) swabs, blood cards and other items provided by the Office of Medical Examiners or Coroner as Reference Samples for a Forensic DNA Test.
While Evidentiary Items do not need to be submitted with a Reference Sample, there is no guarantee that an Evidentiary Item will yield a usable profile.

Questions about the ability of a potential sample to provide a DNA profile should be directed to GenQuest Analysts who can determine the likelihood of the sample producing a valid profile.

Visit our Nonstandard Samples page for more information on Evidentiary Items for DNA Testing.

Forensic DNA Test Pricing

As each Forensic Test is different, and tailored to the individual needs of the case, the customized nature of each testing process results in pricing that can vary widely.
GenQuest encourages contacting us to review the specifics of your case to properly assess the pricing for your Forensic DNA Test.
