Turnaround time, Customer Service, and Price.

The final aspect of choosing an AABB lab is the price. While the most important factors in DNA cases should be accuracy, turnaround time, and customer service, price is always important - especially in difficult economic times.

The petitioner is required to pay the entire testing fee in the United States. This fee should include DNA collection in the U.S., shipping to and from overseas, all testing fees, and the shipment of results.

The only fee paid overseas should be a small collection fee paid to the embassy approved physician. Pricing for DNA tests varies widely. Make sure the price you are quoted includes all of the factors above. Some AABB labs have hidden fees.

Ask the following questions:

Does the price include all shipping charges ?

Are all collection fees included ?

Does the fee include the test results ?

Are there any other fees ?

When it comes time to choose an AABB lab for you immigration DNA test make sure you ask the right questions. At the end of the day it always helps to use a lab that is referred by a friend or family member.
