|Home -> Forensic Testing Services -> Forensic Paternity|
Forensic DNA paternity testing is often used in criminal situations such as rape or incest where there are products of conception. In addition, forensic paternity tests as well as other family relationship tests could be used to identify missing victims or suspects through their family members who are available for testing.
Unmatched Quality and Efficiency
As the world’s largest private DNA testing laboratory, DDC’s forensic DNA paternity tests are unmatched in quality and efficiency. DDC’s laboratory has a number of accreditations for both paternity testing and forensics, including the AABB (American Association of Blood Banks), ASCLD/LAB – International (American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board) and NFSTC/ISO17025 (National Forensic Science Technology Center). DDC is also one of the first two private DNA laboratories to achieve ASCLD/LAB–International accreditation.
Strict Sampling Process
Our laboratory is equipped to process different sample types, such as blood, fetal tissue, bone, hair, and the regularly used buccal swab. All samples are handled with a strict chain of custody documentation process. Each DNA sample is checked against its source records.
