No I actually went through PathLab in Melbourne & the price seemed reasonable (just not so sure about the speed of service tho' ) Costs $30 for the test plus about $13 extra fee - can't remember what for... Goodluck


Mmmmm, PathLab charged me $65    for my saliva test, but then it ended up being the wrong test!!    They did not charge me for the second saliva test  , but according to your quote, they should have given me $35 back because I also had to pay extra for service/postage/admin fee (about $12 or $13).  

GW, if you go ahead with the test, make sure you find out what is the price for Queenslanders, maybe Kiwis get special price, better than us.

Cristina, I think Possum had the saliva test only, with no blood test at all, that's why the cheaper price.  I still have to save up for a while.  

I wasn't even aware they do that, and it looks like they don't just do the saliva test on it's own anymore???  I think she initiated it months ago but it got held up somewhere and she ended up doing two samples.  Isn't that right Poss?
Or did you order that through the Dadamo website - where it is only a saliva test? and they forwarded it on to Pathlabs?  
Cheers!

Yes that's right  Sent first one off on 4th Sep; second one on 24th...Weird thing is there records showed later, that they had received the first one on the 9th
Or did you order that through the Dadamo website - where it is only a saliva test? and they forwarded it on to Pathlabs?  Nup Went straight to PathLab TBH, didn't know the D'adamo site crew would send it on

Possum - Thanks for that, that sounds like good value but sorry it was a big hassle for you though.  Maybe I should order it soon if I want to know before the Christmas after next! You may well be ok... I actually wrote them an email saying I was dissatisfied with the delays etc, and if it had been any other service I'd contracted, I would have expected a discount in the end... Goodluck!!
Are you padded all over Possum, especially on your arms, even when you aren't overweight?  Seems to be a Gatherer trait. Yeah you could say that... Tho' mine is more on my arms, legs & butt That's where I put on weight first - especially the thighs ) I notice with my daughter, even though she is petite & right weight for her height etc, unless she is anorexic thin, even she is slightly rounded on thighs, arms & butt, but so strong from the type of work she does, so I'm sure it is muscle as well...
& my son is the same - tho' he has a tummy now too, from all his wife's good (bad - wheat & cheese etc;)) cooking & the beer that he drinks

We're too unique!  How do you catch a unique mouse?  You neek up to them!

Hi Poss, thanks for the replies.     Now i know what to do
and wait That's not good what Pathlabs did to you and Cristina  .  

I'm also a pear shape so I can't be a pedigree Explorer I guess, also have some Teacher in me with always the tendons showing.  Have lost a fair bit of weight the last few years (16kg) (6 fell off me in the past 2 months on Explorer diet     ) and now am a healthy weight range for my height (some say I'm too thin) but I still think I have thunder thighs   (must tone them I guess - bake on my bike!).  Always had bigger legs, lots of fast twitch muscles - great for sprinting used to do 15 min 100m before knee problems    

Poss - Glad to hear your daughter is fit and healthy (is she type O too, what about her Dad?) but what about your Son and his wife! Tempting to genotype and SWAMI everyone hey?  I do it when watching tv  can't help it  

Lola and Cristina - thanks for confirming the mirror fingerprint issue.  Cristina - interesting that you have radial loops as they are pretty rare and a sign of the Explorer - I wonder if you have any Explorer traits and attributes in your SWAMI diet?  It seems like we are all mixtures though hey!

I thought my fingerprints were asymmetrical but if you count tented arches with a tiny loop on one side as an arch (similar to D_Gale's fingerprints she asked for help on here) then my fingerprints are symmetrical.  Hey something matches on me

Hi Poss, thanks for the replies.     Now i know what to do
and wait That's not good what Pathlabs did to you and Cristina  :(. That's exactly why I wrote - I pointed out that I hadn't been the only one affected
I'm also a pear shape so I can't be a pedigree Explorer I guess, also have some Teacher in me with always the tendons showing.  Have lost a fair bit of weight the last few years (16kg) (6 fell off me in the past 2 months on Explorer diet     ) and now am a healthy weight range for my height (some say I'm too thin) Congrats!! but I still think I have thunder thighs   (must tone them I guess - bake???lol on my bike!). Try squats but first lift small weights on the ankle to improve knees??!![b]
Poss - Glad to hear your daughter is fit and healthy [b] - not sure about healthy - she drinks too much & doesn't eat that well...she's just ultra strong from dancing for a job ;) Yes...she is a type O too... But not sure about her Dad - wimpy Mr P hasn't got up the courage yet to have his blood taken to determine...assures me he is havng a full - long overdue - medical in a coupla weeks - then we'll know...I can't wait to get him sorted out

but what about your Son and his wife! Think she said she was a 'B'   I suggested to son, last night that with their ezcema, that she & our grandaughter might do better avoiding wheat & dairy ??!! His reaction "you know that's never gonna happen...perhaps we'll tackle it from another angle..." Turns out he took my advice tho', a coupla weeks ago, to at least get a multi vitamin & said he feels heaps better for it ;)
Tempting to genotype and SWAMI everyone hey?  I do it when watching tv  can't help it   Starting to do that myself with my customers in the health food shop I work in Have one who's eating out my hand - not literally lol
It seems like we are all mixtures though hey! Yes indeed ;)
I thought my fingerprints were asymmetrical but they are are symmetrical.  Hey something matches on me
