Curiosity DNA Testing
In case you do not need a DNA test for a legal matter, but would like a DNA test for your personal knowledge or peace of mind we offer the option of a Curiosity DNA Test by mailing you a HOME DNA KIT or providing you with instructions on how to collect your own DNA samples. Curiosity DNA Tests do not contain any identifying names because they do not follow strict Chain of Custody procedures. Therefore, results from a Curiosity DNA Test will not be accepted by any government agencies or immigration authorities (U.S. Embassies, U.S Consulates or USCIS). If you presume you may need to use the DNA test for something else than your personal knowledge, we encourage you to choose a Legally Admissible DNA Test – that way you will not have to perform another test in the future and incur in an extra expense.
ATTENTION NEW YORK RESIDENTS ONLY
According to NYSDOH (New York State Department of Health) guidelines, we are NOT able to offer this service for New York state residents. In fact, no laboratory is permitted to perform non-Chain of Custody tests on New York state residents.

YOU WILLL COLLECT YOUR OWN SAMPLES AND SEND THEM TO OUR LAB
We will arrange for a Home DNA Kit to be sent to you or provide instruction on how to collect your own samples depending on your preference. After that, you will collect your own samples as instructed and send them to our lab. Since there is no chain of custody for the samples being collected, the results under this method are not legally binding. Hence, this is a test only to satisfy your curiosity.
HOW TO REQUEST A HOME DNA KIT AND HOW TO PROCEED WITHOUT IT
If you need a Home DNA Kit sent to you, we will need a name and address where the Home DNA Kit is to be sent. Please note we will only ship these kits within the U.S..
The kit will arrive in a white envelope without any markings and it will contain the supplies needed to collect the DNA samples for all participants in your case, instructions and a form to be filled out with minimal information by the client. Once the samples are collected, the Home DNA Kit and its contents need to be shipped back to our laboratory in a prepaid envelope provided in the kit. A minimum non refundable deposit of $100 is required to ship the Home DNA Kit.
Otherwise, if you do not wish to have a Home DNA Kit sent to your house, you can also fill our Contact Form and request for Instructions on How to Collect Your Own DNA Samples. We will be happy to send you information on how you can collect your own DNA samples using supplies that you can buy on your own in any pharmacy, and then you can package those samples and send them to our laboratory.
