Prior to submitting a kit for testing, there is no way to guarantee that DNA will be found. The presence of DNA is based on many factors, some of which are completely out of your control. While this may be discouraging, there are past cases of DNA collection and identification even days after an assault took place. Our EEK can help you collect DNA up to 120 hours after sexual assault, but we recommend conducting the kit as soon as you are ready. After completing a kit, you may submit it for testing with our partner lab, submit it to a hospital or police station, or store it. If you choose to store it, you have the option to test your kit for free at our partner lab up to two years after collection.
