The cost of every additional forensic sample used is to be added to the standard cost of the test. Kindly always note the success rate. Whilst we do have a very strong track record of successful DNA profile extraction with such samples, we cannot guarantee that the extraction will be successful. We always suggest contacting us as we can tell you more about the chances of success once we have assessed your sample thoroughly.
