The collection of DNA samples for analysis is an easy and painless process that can be performed at any secure collection site. A sterile swab, similar to a Q-Tip, is rubbed on the inside of the cheek for about 30 seconds.
The primary difference between a private DNA test and a legal DNA test is the chain of custody: a controlled documentation process used to ensure test results are legally binding. To make it a court admissible document, all parties must be present and consent to the collection process.
For both legal and non-court admissible testing, the DNA sample itself is collected and analyzed with the same high standards.
Our Certified Technicians who perform the tests are later able to testify in court about the collection process, if the test results should fall into question.
DNA testing is an increasingly popular recourse during personal and legal inquiries because the test results are so accurate, and largely indisputable.
Paternity tests identify the biological parent of a child.
Identity tests confirm family connections for immigration purposes or forensic analysis.
Child DNA profiles ensure critical information about a child’s identity is at-the-ready.
