DNA SWAB INSTRUCTIONS
Enclosed in your kit are two sterile swabs for obtaining DNA from saliva on the inside of your child's cheek. Remove the swabs from the paper sleeve. Collect the saliva (DNA) by rubbing the swab on the inside of the cheek 5-10 times. Let each swab air dry for approximately 2 hours. The DNA swabs should be returned to the paper sleeve. Keep the sleeve and kit together in a photo album for quick reference and easy access.
DO NOT touch the swab tip with your fingers during the process.
