For a hair sample: All you need is 4-6 strands of hair. It does not need to be cut. You can use a comb or brush and use what is left behind. However, please insure that the hair is yours and not hair left behind from another user.
For a saliva sample: swab the inside of the gum line and cheek on one side with a swab. Using the other end of the swab, do the same thing on the opposite check and gum line.
- Place either type of sample in a tissue inside a zip top bag.
- Write your name and DOB on the outside of the bag.
- Then drop oﬀ or mail to our Birmingham oﬃce.
Please note: It is not advised to mail saliva samples during hot weather because of the risk of mold accumulation on the sample.
