OTHER SERVICES: Nonstandard Samples GenQuest    offers    DNA    testing    on    nonstandard    samples.    Nonstandard    samples    (evidentiary samples   in   a   forensic   test)   are   any   kind   of   sample   submitted   which   is   not   a   buccal   cheek   swab   or an FTA blood card. Due   to   the   nature   of   nonstandard   samples,   there   is   no   guarantee   that   the   sample   will   yield   a usable   profile.   To   increase   the   chances   of   obtaining   a   usable   profile,   never   store   a   sample   in   a plastic   bag   or   airtight   container—always   place   items   in   a   paper   envelope,   paper   bag,   or   cardboard box and store in a cool, dry area. Handle potential samples with gloves to avoid contamination. GenQuest recommends the following nonstandard samples: o Toothbrush o Finger or toe nail clippings o A bottle, can, or straw o Cigarette butts o Bandage or tissue with blood o Q-tips o Gum o Underwear If   you   are   attempting   to   submit   hair,   you   will   need   to   provide   several   strands   plucked   directly from    the    head    with    roots    attached.    Please    contact    GenQuest    for    questions    about    other nonstandard samples you are thinking about submitting for testing. Nonstandard   samples   can   be   submitted   for   both   non-legal   and   court   admissible   testing   purposes. Court   admissible   testing   on   nonstandard   samples   requires   a   chain   of   custody   from   an   unbiased third   party.   Visit   our   Estate   Protection    and   Legal   Forensics    pages   for   information   about   court admissible nonstandard sample testing. Prices    for    nonstandard    samples    will    vary.    Please    contact    GenQuest    to    discuss    the    cost    of submitting a nonstandard sample.
