Chain of Custody

As an AABB-accredited laboratory, we perform paternity tests and other DNA tests using a Chain of Custody documentation process to ensure results will be legally defensible, in case the results will be used in courts and other government agencies. This process proves and satisfies the following legal requirements:

  • Samples are collected by an impartial third party, such as a clinic or laboratory.
  • The individuals tested are positively identified (i.e. They present a government-issued ID, and they are photographed and fingerprinted for records.).
  • The samples are carefully tracked and matched to each test participant throughout the entire DNA testing process.

The Chain of Custody process requires samples to be taken by a neutral third party. Thus, test participants would need to go to one of our sample collection facilities to be collected. We have the largest network of collection sites in the U.S., and appointments can be scheduled near your office or home, even on the same day that you call. We can arrange for international collections at your convenience as well; please contact us for more information.

When you come to the sample collection appointment, you will be asked to do the following to meet the Chain of Custody requirements:

  • Present government-issued identification for the adults
  • Present a form of identification for minors, such as a birth certificate or social security card
  • Complete a Client Identification and Consent Form (the minor’s consent form should be signed by the legal guardian)

The Chain of Custody process ensures that your results will be acceptable in court and other legal cases where paternity needs to be established.
