- Return your sample
To ensure your swab can be analysed properly, please take your DNA sample at least an hour after eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. The best time to take the swab is first thing in the morning before breakfast and before brushing your teeth. For best results, we suggest you take the test immediately after waking up, having only rinsed your mouth with water.
