Then, just return the test in the enclosed FedEx envelope. Once your genetic report and blueprint are ready, we will send you an email so that you can schedule your phone call with a Vivaliti DNA health coach, who will take the time to review everything with you. Our goal is that after your call, you will be empowered with a blueprint for success. In the future, we plan to offer additional coaching opportunities for those who like to receive ongoing support.

They do look like big Q-tips, but let’s not put them in our ears. You’re actually going to rub the soft end inside your mouth against your cheek for about 30 to 60 seconds. You can use the same force as you would brushing your teeth. Just be sure to rotate it so that the entire swab is used. Once you’re done with the first swab, return it to the collection tube and use the second swab to do the same thing with your other cheek.

Morning is ideal. Try to use it before you’ve put anything else in your mouth so that you can get the best sample. It’s always a good idea to wash your hands before handling the swabs to avoid any kind of contamination.

This happens occasionally. Sometimes the swab did not collect enough cells, or something else prevented the lab from completing their analysis. No problem. As soon as we find out, we will reach out to you to let you know and then send you a new test kit at no additional cost.
