This has to be the nicest, cleanest, most professional lab facility I have ever been to. I went in around lunchtime, expecting delays and lots of impatient people. What I experienced was far from this. The assistant, was very professional and courteous. There were two other patients and they handled each of us with respect and due diligence. I plan on coming to this location for ALL my lab work in the future! Plus, I have been recommending this place to all my friends and colleagues.

Wonderful experience! Came here for a diabetes (blood sugar) test for my mother. It was a very short wait time. We came 6 minutes before the appointment, the estimated wait time after checking in was 6 minutes, and we were taken in for the test in about 4 minutes after check in. We will definitely return to this location.

Once I checked in, I was seen within 10 to 15 minutes. The receptionist also acted as the person who draws blood. She was perfectly nice but not overly so where it felt inauthentic. I was out after about 5 minutes worth of blood drawn, so I'd say the whole experience took about 20-25 minutes. Space was overall clean. It's a very unassuming location just down from Park Avenue, I believe. Blink and you might miss it.

DNA Test FAQs

  • How much do DNA tests cost in Massachusetts?

    DNA testing costs can range from around $100 to over $2,000, depending on a variety of criteria such as the type and number of tests performed, your geographic area, and the test provider. If your doctor judges DNA tests medically necessary to diagnose or better understand your disease, they may be covered by your health insurance plan. For further information on testing fees, contact the DNA test supplier.DNA testing costs can range from around $100 to over $2,000, depending on a variety of criteria such as the type and number of tests performed, your geographic area, and the test provider.

For further information on testing fees, contact the DNA test supplier.

  • Does insurance cover DNA testing?

    Many health insurance policies cover DNA testing, especially if your doctor recommends it. Check with your insurance provider to see if DNA testing is covered, or ask the DNA testing company to check your insurance benefits. It's crucial to note that some people with health insurance may prefer to pay for DNA testing out of pocket in order to avoid their insurance costs rising if the results reveal specific health issues.

  • Where should I get a DNA test in Massachusetts?

    DNA testing is available in a variety of places, including labs, hospitals, and walk-in clinics. Consider asking your primary care physician whether they do DNA testing or if they can recommend you to a reliable DNA testing institution in Massachusetts. Solv can also assist you in locating the best DNA testing centers in your area.

  • How accurate are DNA tests?

    Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), which are federal regulatory standards that ensure the accuracy of DNA test findings, apply to labs and healthcare facilities that do DNA testing. Testing methodologies, lab staff qualifications, quality control, and testing processes are all covered by CLIA standards. Check with your DNA test provider to see if their tests are CLIA-certified, and don't be afraid to express any concerns you have about the correctness of the results.

  • How long does it take to get DNA test results?

    Depending on the type of testing, results from DNA tests can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Due to the crucial decisions that parents must make when genetic abnormalities are discovered, prenatal DNA test results are usually available within a few days. The results of paternity DNA tests normally arrive in four to six weeks. Inquire with your doctor about the timeline for receiving your DNA test results.

  • How do DNA tests work?

    A small sample of bodily tissues or fluids, such as blood, hair, or skin, is normally required for DNA tests. After that, your DNA sample is submitted to a lab, where technicians look for changes or anomalies in DNA, proteins, or chromosomes that could suggest the existence of specific diseases or disorders. The majority of DNA testing are non-invasive and take only a few minutes to complete.

  • Do I need to see a doctor before getting a DNA test?

    Some DNA tests are available for purchase online or sold over-the-counter at drugstores and pharmacies and do not require a doctor’s approval. However, many DNA tests sold directly to the public are not certified by the CLIA and may produce inaccurate or unreliable results. The benefits of seeing your doctor before getting a DNA test include confirming whether or not testing is necessary and ensuring you get accurate results.

  • How can I book a DNA test on Solv?

    Booking a DNA test on Solv is simple and straightforward. Go to the Solv website, type in the sort of testing service you require as well as your geographic location, and then hit the search button. Solv will present you with a list of top-rated healthcare professionals and labs in your area that do this type of testing. To schedule an appointment, click on the provider of your choosing and use the contact information provided.

  • How long does getting a DNA test take?

    A DNA test normally just takes a few minutes to collect blood, hair, and other samples. Certain DNA testing, such as amniocentesis, which is conducted on pregnant women, may take substantially longer. To find out how long your DNA testing appointment will last, contact the DNA testing company ahead of time. To cut down on waiting time for your DNA test, you might wish to make an appointment rather than wander into a facility.

  • Should I try at-home DNA testing?

    Convenience, cost, and guaranteed privacy are just a few of the numerous advantages of doing a DNA test at home. It's crucial to remember, however, that not all at-home DNA testing are accurate and dependable. Before you try at-home DNA testing, talk to your doctor about the benefits and hazards, as well as the brands they recommend and trust to give accurate results.

Massachusetts DNA Testing

Changes and anomalies in your genes, proteins, and chromosomes can be detected via DNA tests, which may suggest the presence of an illness or disease. These tests can also assist your doctor in ruling out hereditary disorders. There are currently about 77,000 genetic testing accessible and in use.

DNA testing come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Molecular DNA testing check for mutations and changes in one or more genes, as well as gene-specific variants and disorders that are passed down through the family. Missing or additional chromosomes can be detected via chromosomal DNA tests, which can indicate diseases like Down syndrome. Biochemical DNA testing examine the activity level and quantities of proteins and enzymes in genes, whereas gene expression assays determine if certain genes are overactive or underactive.

DNA tests can also be used to determine paternity or maternity status, as well as whether two people are brothers or sisters. DNA tests may also be used for legal purposes, such as confirming biological ties between adolescent and adult children.

DNA testing are used for a variety of purposes, including screening fetuses and infants for genetic abnormalities and confirming the absence of hereditary conditions in people. DNA tests can also be used to see if you have inherited a genetic condition from your family. Based on your family history, symptoms, and health concerns, your doctor can often assess whether you will benefit from one or more DNA tests.

Many DNA testing are painless, while some may be more intrusive depending on the process. Typically, blood is obtained from the arm or a puncture on the finger, while tissue samples are swabbed from the inside of the cheek or the back of the throat. Other tests, such as those performed on pregnant women, may need the insertion of needles or a catheter into the uterus or cervix in order to collect amniotic fluid.

Your doctor can go over the specifics of what to expect from a DNA test, such as how long it will take and how to prepare for it.
