Legal or NON-Legal DNA Tests

When scheduling a DNA test regardless of the purpose, Accredited Drug Testing recommends always utilizing a legal DNA test procedure for current or future use. A legal DNA test has very specific Chain of Custody test procedures which ensures that the DNA test results can be used in a legal proceeding. A non-legal DNA test will provide the results, but cannot be used in any type of legal matter. When conducting a legal DNA test all parties must present a valid form of identification, photographs will be taken of all parties, legal guardian documentation and or birth certificates of any minor children may be required. These procedures for a legal DNA test ensure that should the DNA test results be used in a legal proceeding, the chain of custody is carefully followed and no challenge to the results can be successfully made, that’s why it’s always best to schedule a legal DNA test.

Accredited Drug Testing Recognized For DNA Expertise

Please note – Accredited Drug Testing, Inc. only utilizes American Association of Blood Bank (AABB) certified laboratories for DNA relationship testing. The AABB accreditation is the highest national standard applied to DNA testing laboratories.

Any DNA test which is conducted by a non- AABB laboratory will not be accepted in a court of law. Home kits and other types of non- AABB DNA testing, while inexpensive/cheap, are not reliable and will not be permitted in a legal proceeding.

DNA Paternity Testing

A DNA test for paternity purposes determines the biological father of a child. Every human inherits specific DNA from both biological parents, half from the mother and half from the father. A DNA test examines a child’s DNA pattern with that of an alleged father to determine if the child and the alleged father have the same DNA. Results of a properly administered DNA test utilizing an AABB accredited laboratory are 99.9% accurate. While DNA paternity testing may be stressful for some parties involved, Accredited Drug Testing is committed to making the entire DNA paternity testing experience, professional, convenient, confidential and Stress-Free.

When administering a DNA test to a child/minor, the legal guardian must be present and provide authorization for the DNA test to be conducted. The legal guardian can be the mother, father or other natural or court ordered person who has legal decision making authority over the minor child.

A DNA test is a non-intrusive procedure usually utilizing an oral swab from all parties, which then follows a specific chain of custody process in which the oral swab specimens are sent to a certified and accredited AABB laboratory. The Laboratory that analyzes the DNA specimen and provides the results. DNA test results are 99.9% accurate.

More DNA Testing FAQ

What is paternity?

Paternity means fatherhood. Paternity is established when a paternity testing laboratory uses genetic testing methods / DNA test, to demonstrate to a legal standard, that an alleged father is the biological father. Paternity is disproved when these same methods and standards demonstrate that an alleged father is not the biological father.

What is DNA testing?

DNA testing refers to the process of examining an individual’s DNA markers for the purpose of genetic human identification and for determining the relationship between two people.

How accurate is DNA-Based paternity testing?

The DNA profiling method is an extremely accurate genetic testing method. It can absolutely determine if the man is not the biological father and reliably exclude him. DNA profiling can establish that the alleged father is the child’s biological father with a probability of paternity of 99.99% or higher. Each year many individual clients, child support offices, attorneys, judges, and physicians choose Genetic Profiles as their source for information, guidance and testing services in order to determine paternity.

Are the results admissible in court?

Yes. The laboratory follows a strict chain-of-custody procedure which allows for court/legal admissibility.

Is the Lab accredited? Are the results reliable?

The DNA testing laboratory used by Genetic Profiles is accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks(AABB)for the purpose of performing paternity (parentage) tests. Your paternity test will be processed by highly skilled and trained laboratory technicians. Every test is evaluated by a Ph.D. scientist with several years specializing in DNA genetic testing.

How long does it take to receive results from the paternity test?

It typically takes about 3-4 working days to complete the testing. In cases where the mother’s sample is not included or when an abnormal/difficult sample is used, testing may require more time.

Are the paternity test results confidential?

Yes, The DNA test results are strictly confidential. They are released only to the adult persons who were tested and, as requested, to their authorized agents (e.g. attorneys).

How does DNA paternity testing work?

DNA analysis, which has proven to be a major advance in the field of paternity testing, involves the direct examination of the genetic material that a child inherited from its biological parents. DNA is located throughout the human body and in the same identical form. Thus, DNA in blood is the same as that in skin, cheek lining, muscle, bone, teeth and various other tissues. The DNA of a person is fully established at conception and remains totally constant throughout life. During the paternity testing process, the genetic characteristics of the child are first compared to those of its mother. Those characteristics in the child that cannot be found in the mother have been inherited from the biological father. If the tested man (alleged father) does not have the genetic characteristics necessary to be the biological father of the child, he is excluded. If the tested man’s DNA does contain those genetic characteristics, then the probability that this man is the true biological father is calculated and reported by the laboratory.

What are some of the reasons DNA testing is conducted?

There are many legal and personal reasons that require DNA testing. Some of the more common include:

Can I do anything to alter the results of the test?

No, you can not alter the results of a test. Medication, drugs, alcohol, food, age or lifestyle cannot alter the DNA pattern within an individual.

Local Area Info: Lake Elsinore, California

Lake Elsinore is a city in western Riverside County, California, United States. Established as a city in 1888, it is on the shore of Lake Elsinore, a natural freshwater lake about 3,000 acres (1,200ha) in size. The city has grown from a small resort town in the late 19th century and early 20th century to a population of well above 60,000 as of 2016.

Native Americans have long lived in the Elsinore Valley. The Luiseo people were the earliest known inhabitants. Their pictographs can be found on rocks on the Santa Ana Mountains and in Temescal Valley, and artifacts have been found all around Lake Elsinore and in the local canyons and hills.[citation needed]

Overlooked by the expedition of Juan Bautista de Anza, the largest natural lake in Southern California was first seen by the Spanish Franciscan padre Juan Santiago, exploring eastward from the Mission San Juan Capistrano in 1797. In 1810, the water level of the Laguna Grande was first described by a traveler as being little more than a swamp about a mile long. Later in the early 19th century, the lake grew larger, providing a spot to camp and water their animals for Mexican rancheros, American trappers, the expedition of John C. Frmont, and the immigrants during the California Gold Rush as they traveled along the southern shore of the lake on what later became the Southern Emigrant Trail and the route of the Butterfield Overland Mail.
