Our new swabs come in a sterile envelope, using less plastic overall. The envelope also contains a rapidry pouch, which is designed to dry your sample faster and preserve the DNA.
How do I take a Living DNA swab?
1. Open the sterile paper envelope to remove the swab
2. Rub and rotate the swab along the inside of your cheeks for the full 30-45 seconds.
3. Place the swab in the RapiDry pouch and seal with the test ID sticker. If your kit contains a sticker with an ID beginning with RD, please dispose of this label and only use the one beginning with LD.
You can discard the larger, outer packaging of the swab.
4. Put the RapiDri pouch in the postage bag and pop it in the post.*
