No need to extract DNA just pipette cells directly onto the FTA card provided and mail to our testing centre - no dry ice needed. The test itself includes the use of short tandem repeat (STR) loci as some of the most informative polymorphic markers in the human genome.
Price: Tests are £135 each or £125 if five or more are ordered
