A legal DNA test is court admissible; whereas, a non-legal test is for peace of mind only. When you decide which type of DNA test is needed, you should consider what you might do with the results.
If you want the results of your DNA test to be used for court or immigration, the test must be done using strict chain-of-custody procedures. Our sample collectors are AABB-trained and follow all AABB guidelines. Moreover, all DNA tests are processed by an AABB-accredited laboratory to ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes. Paternity tests and immigration DNA tests are commonly conducted using legal, chain-of-custody procedures.
For a legal DNA test, all individuals must provide identification. In addition, a photo will be taken of each person at the time of testing.
