How long does it take?
We despatch your Sampling Kit when we receive your order. This contains everything you need to take and return your DNA sample to our laboratory. The Sampling Kit comes in a high-quality presentation box very suitable as a gift. Inside there is lots of information on the MatriLine test and our other services. There is also a copy of Prof Sykes' classic book The Seven Daughters of Eve that triggered the genetic genealogy revolutionin. So you can read about the lives of your ancestors even before the DNA test reveals which one is yours.
Once we have received your sampling brush at the lab, it will take about six weeks to prepare and sequence your DNA and despatch your results certificates to you.
