Services and Shipping

DBS specimens themselves are provided for the purposes requested without charge. However, the laboratory charges a fee for identifying the specimens, ensuring confidential processing and shipping. Each state determines the cost according to its own policies and procedures. Costs will vary depending on the time and labor needed to locate the DBS and pull the appropriate specimen. For example, it may be easier (and cost less) to pull a random lot of spots rather than identifying individually specified spots. Specimens will not be shipped to residential addresses.
