How to Properly Collect the Sample with Swabs for tellmeGen DNA Tests

tellmeGen provides a DNA kit to help users collect saliva samples accurately for DNA testing. Following the correct procedure ensures reliable results. Here's a summarized guide:

    1. Before the Test:

      • Avoid eating, drinking, chewing gum, or brushing teeth for 30 minutes before the sample collection.
      • Massage your cheeks to stimulate saliva production.
      • Ensure the swab's end doesn't touch any surfaces before use.
    2. During the Test:

        • Carefully remove a swab from its wrapper without touching the tip.
        • Rub the swab inside your mouth, especially the cheeks, to collect saliva.
        • Insert the swab tip into a tube and mix it with the preservative liquid.
        • Break the swab at the notch, leaving the saliva-end inside the tube.
        • Repeat the process with the second swab.
        • Close the tube containing both swabs.
        • Shake the tube around 15 times to mix the saliva with the preservative.
        • Place the collection tubes in the provided box.
        • Secure the box in the shipping bag and send it for collection.
      1. Preservation:

        • While it's not mandatory, it's recommended to store the sample at room temperature (15-30ºC). The preservative solution ensures the sample remains optimal for up to 12 months.

      For those using the Duo/Family DNA Kit from tellmeGen, ensure all users complete the steps before sending the samples.
