DNA and paternity testing: How are the DNA test samples taken?

How are the DNA test samples taken?

You will need to make an appointment have your samples taken by a Doctor or a Nurse. At that appointment a mouth swab will be rubbed gently and painlessly on the inside of your mouth to collect a sample of cheek cells.

You will also need to complete a consent form at the surgery (please remember to take 2 passport style photographs of each person being tested to the appointment) and these and the sample will then sent to the paternity testing company by the surgery.
