This question is about DNA identification.  I've read everything I
could find on the 'net and no one answers this one:

How long does it take for a DNA sample to be identified?  From the
sample arriving at a lab, to the lab being able to confirm or deny the
identity comparing it to an existing sample, to the standard of
deciding a paternity suit or a crime investigation.  I'm looking for
sample in>data out time.  Is it minutes?  Hours?  Days?
