    Ah ok so it is nothing fancy then. I thought maybe they checked the sample was viable or something. Thank you, I don't believe there are anymore tests available for me,I'm female so autosomal & mtDNA are all I can do

    Dumb question, what does it actually mean when they say it has been "batched"? It already has a kit number so what is the 'batching process? Is it just another number or is there more to it?

    I'm glad you called and found out the reason. Sometimes a sample is good for one or two tests, but insufficient for testing later. It's unfortunate that happened in your case, but at least now you can give a new, fresh sample. Make sure you follow the DNA Test Kit Instructions in the FTDNA Learning Center for best results. There are videos and step-by-step instructions on that page, but I made a post earlier this year pointing out some other considerations.

    I see. If you don't get results this week, you can always contact FTDNA Customer Support using the link at the top right of these Forum pages. They should be able to check on your kit with the lab, to see if there are any problems, or if it is still in process.

    In your earlier post of 8 Dec., you wrote that your kit was batched on 9 Nov. At that time, it was a little over four weeks since being batched, and now it is over five weeks. Not everyone will be fortunate and have test results in a shorter than usual processing time.

    FTDNA has a page in the Learning Center, "After I return the kit, how long will results take?" It shows there that "mtDNA results typically take 6 to 8 weeks." If things are keeping to that schedule, you should get your results fairly soon, perhaps before the end of this week or early next week, but maybe two weeks more beyond.

    Most of genealogy requires patience, but genetic genealogy requires a lot of it. There are times when test results may take longer than expected to receive. This can be due to several reasons, usually due to either lab delays, or a sample which is insufficient. Lab delays can be due to dealing with a larger amount of tests, as happens during sales, or sometimes due to personnel or other issues (such as during a pandemic). Sometimes the lab needs to re-run the test due to inconclusive results.

    My results are not the fastest in this top. Someone in the top got the result in 15 days!)
