  • Questions about Taking Samples

    Is it normal for the scraper to have some blood on it after obtaining the sample? I wanted to scrape "forcefully" as instructed, but wasn't sure if this effect was normal. Any thoughts before I take sample #2?

    Many thanks,
    Jeff

    Response from FamilyTreeDNA

    Per FamilyTreeDNA: A little blood on the scraper is common and does not impact the quality of the sample. Rather it probably ensures that the scraping was forceful enough to obtain a good sample.

    Cheers,
    Jeff

      Thanks for following up on that Jeff. I had the same thing happen on my second sample and just figured that there was DNA in that one for sure.
      Glad you verified it!
