What happens at the sample collection appointment?

Each person tested (or their legal guardian), will complete and sign paperwork necessary to ensure that proper identification, consent, and contact information is provided. For legally-admissible tests, adult test participants must bring a valid government-issued photo ID and any relevant legal documents (court orders, custody documents, immigration paperwork, etc.), as well as some form of identification for any minor tested children (birth certificate, social security card, photo ID, etc.). For these tests, participants are also photographed and fingerprinted. The entire process (including collection of the samples) usually takes less than 15 minutes for each person tested.
