Timeframe for Results
Veritas Lab understands how important it is for our clients to get timely results for tests. We also understand that an estimated timeframe is important for you to gauge when to expect results. We make every effort to provide reasonable estimates for results; however, as much as we wish we could, we never guarantee timeframes for results. There are a number of reasons that explain why we do not guarantee timeframes for results, including
- Specimens are typically shipped to our central labs, and shipping can be delayed due to weather, mechanical failure, missed cut-off times, etc.
- specimens vary, and sometimes the specimens can require re-testing, confirmation testing, or additional testing
- while lab tests are conducted as scientific processes, ultimately, virtually all of our tests require expert analysis. These analyses, in some instances, are more complicated than expected, and may require extra time to provide you with accurate results.
Instant Background Checks are database checks that typically come back within 24 hours.
Detailed Background Checks are manual labor, and often rely on states, counties, or employers to get back to us with information. Therefore, detailed checks typically take about 3 days to a week to complete. This timeframe varies by who and what we are checking for you.
Ultimately, while we strive to provide accurate results quickly, Veritas Lab prioritizes accuracy over timeliness.
