If you live in the U.S., it takes 4-6 weeks to get your screening results. Outside the U.S. it takes a little longer to allow for shipping. TrialNet forwards all samples from screenings and studies to specialized laboratories across the U.S. This way, all samples are processed in a consistent way, meeting strict requirements for scientific research. The process takes a little longer, but it’s an important step in ensuring you receive the most accurate results.

If your results are negative, you will receive a letter in the mail. If they are positive, a TrialNet representative will call you to discuss your results and next steps.
