I've ordered an oral DNA test over the internet from USA.

Hi I've ordered an oral DNA test over the internet from USA. There is a saline solution that I have to gargle in my mouth but because it's not FDA approved I don't trust it. Is there any private labs that would check it for me before I use it. I'm a worrier. I don't mind paying. I just want to know it's safe to use
Thank you for your help

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately you can not find any labs to test such solution but saline solution is nothing and is just sterile water with very little amount of salt in it and it is widely used in medical procedures and cause no harm . You can rinse your mouth with any saline solution before testing and you can buy from your own pharmacy.

Well I have already used the saline solution tonight. I just got a silly ideah, what if it was contaminated or something. I know it sounds silly. I do suffer from anxiety. But it does have a CE marking so does that mean it's safe to use. Also, do we use lots of medical products from USA. I never really thought about it. It would make me feel better if we do. As I feel like I might of ordered something dodgy over the internet. Sorry if this all sounds crazy. I worry over the slightest thing
Thanks so much for your time
