Accuracy and Reliability Matters

Your DNA test is run twice

Two teams independently process the samples for every legal case and compare their findings to ensure they are the same. This reduces the possibility of errors that can be caused by sample mix-ups and contamination.

Our laboratory is staffed with proven experts

Our team of scientists have decades of experience in genetic testing and are adept at accurately interpreting DNA test results. Every test is reviewed by a trained PhD before the results are released.

Extended analysis is performed when needed

When necessary, our laboratory examines additional DNA markers to ensure accurate results. This extended testing is often used when we encounter situations such as genetic mutations.

Our laboratory is state of the art 

Our laboratory is equipped with the latest DNA testing technology. The PCR thermocyclers, robotics systems, and genetic analysers reduce human error and ensure the reliability and accuracy of our test results.
