Kit

    • The easy-to-use 3X4 Genetics Kit comes with step-by-step instructions. You can do the test yourself easily at home. 
    • No spitting, no needles and no blood.
    • Collecting your genetic sample is as easy as swabbing each cheek for 30 seconds.

    Swab

    1. Do the test first thing in the morning, before you eat or drink anything or, wait an hour after eating and rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.
    2. Twist the tube cap to unlock it. 
    3. Pull the swab stick out slowly, being careful not to touch the swab tip with anything other than your inner cheek.
    4. Rub the inside lining of your inner cheek firmly for 30 secs. Do not rub so hard that you draw blood, but firmly enough to ensure some inner cheek cells rub off on to the swab.
    5. Carefully put the swab stick back into the tube and click the tube to lock it.
    6. If the swab tip touches anything other than your inner cheek, please request another kit be sent to you and repeat the test.
