Reasons you may not be able to have the test or why the results may not be helpful include:
- Sample size. The possibility of having inaccurate test results increases if a very small sample of DNA is available for testing. The chance that the DNA will be mixed up with some other DNA is also higher with a smaller sample.
- Having had a blood transfusion within the past three months.
- Decay of the tissue sample.
