Test Results Processing Times

Once we receive your DNA sample, we send your sample directly to the lab for processing. You will also receive a notice of receipt via the email address associated with your account.

Processing times vary depending on the test(s) ordered.

As of June 5, 2024, due to high lab volume,
the following tests have delayed processing times:

Y-DNA - 4 to 6 weeks

Big Y - 10 to 12 weeks

Processing times are an estimate only and are subject to lab volume and quality control.

Typical result processing times are as follows:

  • Family Finder™ – 3 to 4 weeks
  • mtFull Sequence – 6 to 8 weeks
  • Y-DNA (excluding Big Y) – 4 to 6 weeks
  • Big Y-700 – 10 to 12 weeks
  • BAM File – Up to 72 hours.
  • Autosomal Transfer Unlock – Up to 72 hours. 

Please note that your batch number is not a good indicator of when your test will be complete; this is only an indication of when your test was ordered in our lab.
