Facts About Our DNA Testing Services

We understand that while you might be familiar with DNA testing from TV shows like Maury, Paternity Court, and CSI, this might be the first time you’ve considered a DNA test for yourself, a loved one, or a friend. Our DNA Consultants have helped thousands of others who have gone through the same situation you are in now.

We have been fortunate to become a leader in providing ways to prove the biological relationship between two or more people. You can always be confident that the results we provide you from our many DNA test options, are correct and reliable. Our partner laboratory runs every paternity DNA sample twice to make certain you are provided with 100% accurate results. Once all of your DNA samples arrive in our lab, their arrival is recorded, and your are notified testing has begun. The lab technicians immediately divide the swabs into two different groups. Independent teams then get right to work performing two separate DNA tests. Every step of the way your DNA samples are tracked, identified, and checked against the records of your case, and a laboratory staff member must sign off at each point of the process.
