RELATIONSHIPS: Testing Process Step by Step The   general   process   for   a   DNA   test   with   GenQuest   is   outlined   below,   and   can   be   broken   down into   five   steps:   Contacting   GenQuest,   starting   your   test,   the   collection   of   samples,   the   testing, and the release of the results. 1. Contact GenQuest Initiating   a   test   with   GenQuest   is   quick   and   easy!   When   you   contact   GenQuest,   you   will   have the   opportunity   to   discuss   your   situation   with   our   staff,   ask   questions,   and   obtain   a   quote   for   the service you need. 2. Start Your Test When   you   choose   to   begin   your   test,   our   staff   will   ask   for   some   basic   information   based   on   the type   of   testing   you’re   looking   for   and   the   initial   payment   due   for   your   testing.   Once   the   necessary information   and   payment   is   received,   the   testing   process   will   begin   and   you   will   proceed   to   step three. Call or email today, or visit our Order  page to begin your test. 3. Collection of Samples Once   a   test   is   initiated,   the   participants   will   be   collected.   GenQuest   can   collect   participants   all over    the    United    States.    Participants    in    personal    knowledge    tests    can    perform    the    collection themselves   in   the   comfort   of   their   own   home.   For   court   admissible   tests,   GenQuest   will   arrange for a collection with an unbiased third party near you. The   actual   collection   of   the   DNA   sample   is   a   safe,   reliable,   and   noninvasive   procedure   using buccal   cheek   swabs.   Court   admissible   test   collections   require   legal   identification,   and   if   a   minor is involved in the testing, a legal guardian to sign for consent. Participants   in   the   Reno/Sparks   area   of   Nevada   are   welcome   to   come   to   our   office   in   Sparks   for their collection. We have open walk-in hours from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. 4. Testing of Samples Once   the   samples   are   collected   they   are   sent   to   GenQuest’s   laboratory   for   testing.   Testing   the samples   typically   takes   five   to   seven   business   days.   Our   analysts   process   the   buccal   swab   samples through the following quality-controlled and established testing steps: 1.     Extract DNA from the buccal swab. 2.     Perform polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on the extracted DNA to make         billions of copies of the DNA. 3.     Analyze the PCR products on the ABI Prism® 3130 genetic analyzer to         determine the alleles for each sample. 4.     Determine relatedness based on the identified alleles for each participant. 5.     Calculate the relationship index or the statistical measure of the relationship. 5. Release of Results Results   are   released   only   to   authorized   recipients   by   email,   mail,   or   in   person.   GenQuest   does not   release   reports   over   the   phone   or   to   unauthorized   parties.   All   destinations   must   be   requested in   writing   by   a   test   participant.   If   you   need   help   interpreting   your   results,   please   visit   our   easy-to- use   Interpreting   Your   Results    page,   or   you   can   call   GenQuest   and   our   staff   will   be   happy   to   help you with understanding your results. Please    visit    our    Prices    &    Payment     page    for    information    on    testing    costs.    If    you    have    any questions please Contact Us  and our staff will be happy to assist you.
