A home testing kit for DNA, mirroring the drug testing kits popular with parents, is now available on the market. Containing a swab, a consent form (which of course, legally must be there), andÂ a Netflix-like package ready for return mailing. The product will findÂ the DNA answers coming your way in three to five days.
The DNA testÂ arrived Wednesday on select stores’ shelves, but consumers may want to call around to ensure the local drug store carries it. And do not count on this product answering questions for court issues -Â legally – the home kit does not qualify as sufficient.
By the time all is said and done with lab fees – add in another $119 to receive results. The company behind many a DNA test, Identigene, reported their demand for the product was so high that it called for a home version.
“Store sales are brisk and Identigene has been inundated with questions regarding the product’s availability,” the company said in a statement.
