Find out test results


  • Your results will be available approximately 1 month after you post your saliva sample.
  • If you are found to have the short gene (negative test result), you will receive a letter describing your results. You have the option of talking to a genetic counsellor about your results if you wish.
  • If you are found to have the intermediate, medium or long gene (positive test result) you will be telephoned by a genetic counsellor with your results.

    You will be offered genetic counselling to discuss your results and family planning options. Genetic counsellors are trained to talk to people about inherited conditions, to discuss any concerns or issues people have and to provide support.

    Follow-up counselling is available to ensure on-going support, review previous information or to answer new questions as they arise.
  • Regardless of whether you receive a positive or negative test result, we will give you a letter that explains your results and you can choose to pass this onto your doctor if you wish.
