Frequently Asked Questions
How do you take my DNA sample?
It’s easy: you come into the pharmacy, and we administer a safe, non-invasive cheek swab.
Is it secure?
Your information is protected! Your personal demographic information will be stored in Fricks’ HIPAA-secure database, and the lab will only receive the sample attached to an anonymized barcode. Your sample is also protected by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act. The link between the two entities is password encrypted using 256-bit encryption.
How long does it take to get my results?
Once the laboratory receives your DNA sample from Fricks Pharmacy, it should take approximately 2 weeks. We will contact you once we receive the results and schedule a time to discuss them with you.
