How long does the DNA test take?

Cellmark provides a Next Day DNA service at no extra cost.

This means that if all the DNA samples for your test arrive at our UK laboratory before 10am we aim to send the test result to you by the end of the next working day by email.

Please note that DNA testing is a complex laboratory process and very occasionally a test may take a little longer, but we are committed to getting the result to you as quickly as possible.
