DNA Testing Over 5,000 U.S. and Worldwide Locations

Local DNA Collection Facilities

Chances are, we’re close to your neighborhood.  DDC has the largest network of collection facilities in America, so finding a convenient location and time for your DNA-collection appointment is easy.

Legal, prenatal, and immigration DNA-testing require participants to have their DNA-collection supervised by a certified third party, to ensure the right people are being tested. Collectors check IDs, take photographs of participants, handle samples and paperwork, and are responsible for sending the package express to our accredited lab in Cincinnati, Ohio.

We understand every situation is different. Do participants live in different cities? Do you want separate appointments? Would you rather collect DNA at home? Is one party incarcerated? We can help! Call to talk to one of our paternity experts who can answer all your questions, help you decide which test is best for you, and schedule an appointment for DNA-collection at a facility near you.
