We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!

How to make your DNA Sampling Kit
1. We will send you sterile cotton-tippped swabs for each participant. These can be purchased from a pharmacy.It is important to avoid touching the cotton end with your fingers.
Sample Collection Instructions
Prepare an envelope for each participant, clearly writing the following details on the outside:Your case reference code (this will be provided to you at time of order by our customer support team. Contact us to request yours), Full Name, Date of Birth
Using clean swabs, rub the cotton end of the swab along the inside of your cheek, against the gums and behind your lips as well. Do this for 10 seconds per person. Remember you are collecting loose cheek cells and not just saliva, so rub right against the inside of the cheek.
Place the swab in the container provided
Place the paper envelopes with the swabs inside into one larger envelope along with your signed submission form and send back to Revoderm Pharma for processing. Please remember to affix enough postage and use a secure service such as courier or registered mail.
