Step 1: Register your SelfDecode DNA Test Kit
Just visit selfdecode.com/register and enter your DNA sample tube barcode, your name, ethnicity, sex, and birth year in the required fields.
Step 2: Gather your DNA sample
Make sure to not eat or drink at least 30 minutes before collecting your DNA sample! Remove the collection funnel and tube from the pack. Make sure the level of the liquid in the tube is at the 2ml line before use.
Unscrew the cap from the tube. Be careful not to spill the liquid and attach the collection funnel! Be sure to not over-tighten.
Start spitting into the funnel. Fill the tube with saliva until it reaches the 4ml line. If you have trouble producing the amount of saliva needed, try rubbing the inside of your cheek with your tongue, or massage the outside of your cheeks. You can even try thinking of biting into a sour lemon!
Unscrew the collection funnel and replace the tube cap tightly. You can now discard the funnel.
Shake the collection tube several times to mix the saliva with the solution. And you’re done!
Step 3: Send your DNA sample back to our lab
Place the DNA sample inside the specimen bag. After this, you can put your specimen bag into the box.
Put the entire box inside your prepaid return envelope. Now all you need to do is send it and forget it!
Wait 6-8 weeks. Once your results are ready, you will be notified via email. Happy decoding!
