What is DNA?
In humans, DNA is found in most cells of the body. A large percentage of DNA is the same from person to person because similar biological processes must occur in all people. However, a small percentage of each person’s DNA is highly variable between different people, and every individual, with the exception of identical twins, has a unique DNA make-up that defines that person’s genetic characteristics. It is the person’s unique DNA make-up that allows DNA testing to accurately and powerfully identify that individual.
How is a DNA sample collected?
For a Legal test, one of our authorized agents will verify your identity and collect the cheek swab. For a Curiosity test, you can collect the samples yourself, using kits that we ship to you.
How reliable is DNA testing?
To ensure you receive the most reliable results possible, you should select an experienced and accredited laboratory.
Why is accreditation important?
