Turnaround: 3 -5 Days
We offer you the possibility of generating your own unique genetic DNA profile. Every individual has a unique genetic make-up and therefore can be identified through their profile. We will analyze 21 genetic markers and provide you with a report that can be used to identify you uniquely. DNA Profiling can therefore be used for a wide variety of purposes.
Due to New York State Department of Health regulations, we cannot offer any DNA tests to New York residents.
All our DNA analysis is performed by an ISO17025 accredited DNA testing laboratory using state-of-the-art genetic identification system and are identical to those used in DNA forensic testing applications for human identification purposes.
Results are available within 3-5 working days after arrival of the samples at our laboratory. We will send you a report detailing your unique 21 marker profile.
Uses for a DNA profile analysis
This service is applicable to to individuals such as large estate owners and individuals operating in high risk environments. It can also be used by insurance companies or legal professionals to identify individuals and keep a permanent record of their identity for future use. The applications are wide and far reaching.
DNA analysis for personal use
Once you order the test we will send you the self-collection DNA sample kit. The process to collect the samples is very easy. Once the samples are sent to the DNA laboratory, they are analyzed and a DNA profile is produced and sent to the client. The document has no legal validity as the chain of custody procedures for sample verification have not been adhered to.
DNA profile for official or legal use
In order to be legally valid, the sample collection process has to follow the proper Chain-of-Custody procedure in order to confirm the identity of the samples. Once the order has been placed, we will send you the DNA kit and the sampling will have to be performed by a qualified Medical Practitioner. He will be responsible for verifying the samples and sending them back to the laboratory. The result can then be attached to a testament or stored for future identification requirements.
DNA profiling for comparison & verification purposes
In cases where there is doubt about individuals that have submitted their samples for genetic DNA fingerprinting, such as paternity testing, we also offer a service whereby it will compare the new DNA sample provided by the client to the result of a DNA profile produced by another DNA testing company. Whilst we will not comment on the results of the other company, we will be able to confirm if the profile is of the same person or not, subject to the same markers being analyzed in both cases (or the majority of markers). A copy of the DNA profile will be required in advance to confirm that we are able to compare the profiles.
Ordering a DNA Profile does NOT provide any other information related to areas such as health and ancestry.
