Cost & Payment Procedures


Reports with test results will only be available after we receive a payment. We accept online payments through a secure payment system that allows you to pay using a credit card.  An e-mail containing a secure link to pay by credit card is sent to you once testing is successfully performed, and results are released by email once the online payment process is completed. Please note that you will not be able to pay until the requested testing is completed.

When You Can Expect Your Results

Turnaround Time

The turnaround time for all tests can be up to 4 weeks, but is generally much faster; the variation depends on the incoming sample volume we have at that specific time as some tests are done infrequently.

Checking for Your Results

  • Please, log in to the PennGen Sample Submission Application to check on the current status of your sample.
  • Once the status has been marked as "Received", please allow 3–4 weeks before contacting us to inquire about the results/delay.
  • If the status still shows "Waiting to be received", please check with your shipping company before contacting us.
