I just handed my tube of spit over to the FedEx guy.  I had no idea just how hard it was going to be to make 3ml of liquid saliva not counting the foam.  I opted to get my results via the web, hoping to see them sooner, but also because we don't need to kill more trees just so that I can see the results on a page.  I love technology.

The packaging does indicate that the lab may take between 10 and 15 days to process my sample, but I know that's just a rough estimate.  For those of you who opted for web results, how long did it take for your information to show up?

Not sure how things are done in the States, but in Canada this is how I was told it was done.  The lab tests in groups of 10, so when you send in your sample, it depends where your sample is in the sequence.  Like if they had just run a test and you're number one or two, it may be a while before they get to ten, but you may be higher up and so it could be quicker.  Though I think that the turn around may be quicker in the States than Canada.
This may just give you an idea on the time frame.  Obviously getting your results on line saves the postal time too.

Do they notify you when it's available to view online, or do you just keep checking back?

Sorry, I don't remember if there was an e-mail stating that the results were in...  I seem to think so, but can't be sure.

I was checking constantly. I don't recall if they emailed me or not, because I probably saw it on the website before they had a chance to do so.

I'll probably do that too.  I'm anxious.
