You must know that there are separated and labeled buccal swabs for the child, the mother and the possible father. It also includes a container that will serve as a package for the samples to be returned in to the laboratory for analysis and testing purposes.

What you have to do after opening the package to your home DNA paternity test kit is to label the envelopes of each testing swab's separate envelopes to avoid mixing it all up and to keep the samples clean. Then you may get the samples from the alleged parents and the child's inner cheek by using a slight pressure while rotating the sample swab to get the cheek cells. Make sure to take the samples one at a time as to avoid confusion in packing it back on their individual containers and envelopes.

When all the essential samples have already been collected for your home dna testing kits, you'll have to mail it back to the manufacturer's laboratories for analysis.

Some companies may not issue the result for several weeks. Normally, these results will come mailed to you. Keep in mind, some companies may even offer rush services where you can receive the results in just 3 working days. This will result in an additional fee. Also, some companies may offer paternity test results over the phone and then send you a printed copy of the result shortly thereafter.
