We used Identigene to determine rather or not a 6 year old child was in fact my husbands frmo a previous girlfriend. We administered the at home test, got the results (Negative) and then upgraded to the court admisable test which came back negative. We then went and saw an attorney who drew papers up for the babys mama....she then ordered another test which was tested thru LabCorp....we were on pins and needles the enitre 10 days waiting on the results. The results are in and IDENTIGENE was correct....he is NOT the father!!! Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!
This product was very helpful and very affordable... everyne has situations and we don't want everyone to know about.. this is strictly confidential and worthwhile.
this was an easy product to use but we were scared after looking at the little envelopes the swabs were sealed in. they had leaked through. i had enough common sense not to let the little envelopes touch each other until they were dry then i returned them back to the big envelope for mailing knowing this might compromise the results if they had touched. so when they were all dry i mailed them. i did call and they said to go ahead and mail them in whether they touched or not and if the results came back inconclusive they would send out another test free of charge and you would get one free retest. hope this makes sense. so don't worry if the smaller envelopes leak through. just call and get a name of someone who tells you they will replace it and retest for free.
Very simple, allows for online retrieval of results and/or hard copy sent through the mail. Results were quick and conclusive.
Many people may be afraid to spend their money on such a product thinking that it is a scam. Well I am here to tell you that it is NOT a scam! Back in 2009, I found out I was pregnant and I knew that there were 2 possibilities. In July of 2009, I bought this item but from Walgreens. I did the swabs on July 21 and received my results on July 29. I had no way of knowing if the results were accurate, but I ended up having to go through the child support office for a LEGAL test anyway and the results were identical. Well here it is January 2013 and I found myself having to buy the test yet again. I didn't hesitate this time because I already knew for a FACT that the tests were exactly what I expected them to be...ACCURATE. This time, I received that 99.99% test result :-)! I sent my samples in (Priority Mail with USPS) January 4 (Friday) and received my results January 8 (Tuesday). They received my samples on Monday and the test was completed on Monday (without paying for 1 day rush proc3ss)! Thanks Identigene.
I was a bit skeptical of this test at first,but glad that I did this. from the time that I ordered to the time when I was looking at results spanned...oh, maybe 3 weeks. Lab fees will cost you around 129? That is still cheaper than most places. I dont recall reading about lab fees before I ordered but maybe. I found the test easy to take and simple in design. Identigene's site is quite easy to use as well. I would recommend this kit to anyone trying to find out an answer like this kit offers.
I am not a person to write reviews but I had to with this product because of the long overdue answers that this test provided. I was very skeptical and had read blogs that critiqued this product. I thought it would be a waste of money and would provide false hope. I followed the directions step by step (word of advice fill out the individual envelopes before placing the swabs in the envelopes, if the moisture leaks through let it dry completely before touching it against mother/child/father envelope so that the DNA does not become contaminated) I did my test with my mother, mailed it to my alleged father 3 states away, he then mailed all of the samples 5 states away to the DNA center. When the product arrived at the center I was notified by email that it had been received. 2 days later received an email results were posted...After 36 years I am finally going to meet my Daddy in a few weeks! For anyone seeking the truth this product is for you!
at first when my ex told me about this i thought this was a scam. we bought it at our local Walmart for 27 bucks and sent a money order in for the 129 lab fee...we took out the swabs and swabbed each other . there are envelopes in the kit (3) so i had already labeled each one with our names on it. after swabbing each other 20 secs per swab (swabbed inside the cheek) we put the swabs in the envelope. mailing off is postage paid. if you gotta know sooner you can overnight it to them. We dropped it in the mailbox on 8/1/13 but the mail man didnt pick it up till 8/2/13..on 8/7/13 we found out what I already knew. 99.99% he was the father. he was happy to know that he has an 11 year old son. he now has a 13 year old, 12 year old and 11 year old left handed sons..thank you identigene i feel like a bunch of weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I now receive financial help from my sons dad and we are considering getting back together
I was going back and forth about if I should do an at home DNA test at all and when I finally decided yes, I brought identigene. I took mine, my daughter and my boyfriend DNA. Mailed everything off (I paid for overnight) and my results were ready exactly 2 days after they received it. Some people said it took theirs longer but if you follow the directions carefully like signing your name, paying in advanced then it should not take long. It was quick, easy and nobody but me and my boyfriend knew about the test, needless to say...he's the father, which we kinda knew because our baby looked just like him but we ALL have peace of mind and can move on! Thanks identigene. Also. Identigene cost around $390 plus $129 for lab. I did a money order instead of putting my CC info on the paper. They provide free postage unless you use UPS or FedEx which is what I used.
The company said the test showed he wasn't my father I new it had to be wrong went with another company test and I was right he is my father, IDENTIGENE OFFERED at more then twice the cost to do a much better test to find out ,REALLY why are they selling the cheaper one think about it before you buy this one.
I sent in the tests on Monday and they received them on Friday. Monday of the following week I received an email that the results were in. I was very happy with the results. :)
Its a very quick and easy process. This test is only for personal acknowledgment. If you need them for legal purposes you need to pay extra.
This is how we got an answer how cool of walmart to have something like this so that we didnt have to spend hundreds to have it done im happy
Never got the result and the company was very difficult to work with. I would prefer to give this a "0" rating but the system won't allow it.
This product is the best im glad i purchased it .it was very fast i sent it off on a Friday n got the results on Thursday night via online i appreciate identigene they told me the child wasn't mine which is good. Even tho in my eyes look like we do look alike im so happy that they worked so fast. fill out the paper work first before u swab and make sure to read the directions overall i highly recommend this product in plus its cheap
First the postive...the product itself is simple and most of Identigene's customer service reps are professional and helpful.
That being said, I am still waiting for my results. All swabs were in their possession on August 14...now the 23rd and was told the results will likely be in sometime next week. The wait is longer than the 2-5 days I was told before I purchased the product. In addition, the payment was delayed because of an error on their end. That caused a two-day lab delay. Doesn't seem like much time. But believe me, when you are the one waiting two-days is huge!!!
Given that I hand-delivered my swab, and made payment at that time...I really was expecting a much better experience with them.
This product is inexpensive for accurate results of paternity issue. The lab results was given to me two days exactly. It beats paying $300 for a DNA test elsewhere. I know this to be accurate
You can pay for the sample kit with cash, yet payment for the lab work requires a credit card. The card holder's name is emblazoned on the account on the website and retained in their online database. How long until yet another web-based database has its security (and more importantly YOURS) compromised?
Their customer support refuses to remove the card holder name from the account.
This product was very easy to use. Filled out the envelopes and paperwork & then swabbed both the child and alleged father and placed the swabs in the envelope. Make sure to let the envelopes dry before placing them together---you don't want the DNA mixing together. Then placed both the envelopes in the pre-paid package and mailed them off. I sent them via regular mail. I mailed them on a Tuesday & they didn't receive the samples until the following Tuesday. They sent an e-mail confirming the samples were rcvd & the payment was processed (make sure to check your spam folder) and then we got the DNA test results the next day stating that he was the father. If you want quicker results I'd recommend sending via Overnight Mail. There is a lot of anxiety in waiting for the results. Thank you to Identigene for making this a smooth process!
I filled out the paperwork and mailed in. When they emailed me the info some dates were wrong, due to my printing. Excellent customer phone support, they fixed it right away and emailed the corrected info while on the phone. Also answered some other questions I had. Would buy again. Lab fee $129.00, I fiqure about average.
We purchsed this paternity test to find out if my husband is the father to a girl that recently entered our lives. The envelopes included to put the swabs in are flimsy and seemed cheap. The directions included are not very good. We are hoping the results will come back alright but right now we would question the results just based on the look of the product.
