Science behind the test
Home DNA profiles can be used for informative reasons. The samples are collected by you in the comfort of your own home. The results will have no legal validity and are for peace of mind information purposes only.
A legal profile is ideal if you need to store your profile for future identification. People working in high risk professions (such as ground maintenance workers, fire-fighters or military personnel) sometimes have their profiles stored just in case they are at some point involved in a fatal accident and authorities may need to identify the body. DNA profiles can also help investigations involving missing people or to trace kidnap victims. All tests are carried out in our state of the art, ISO 17025 accredited DNA testing laboratory. Your profile will be ready in just 4 working days from the moment we receive the samples at the laboratory
Note that for legal tests, the kit will need to be sent directly to your chosen sampler. You will need to find a health professional to collect the samples in order for the results to be court admissible and have legal validity. Once your kit is received by the sampler, you will need to make an appointment with your sampler to have your samples collected. The cost of a legal profile is of £199 – this is the cost for a 1 person profile if the individual tested is based in the UK. For test participants outside the UK, the cost is of £299 per profile
Samples are collected by using our home sample collection kit. Your kit will be sent out following receipt of your payment. Kits will contain sterile mouth swabs (2 per person) which are used to collect the cheek cell sample. Collecting samples with mouth swabs could not be easier and it just takes a couple of seconds (instructions will be provided inside our kit). Simply rub the swabs inside the mouth, against your cheek and beneath your tongue for 30 seconds. Once you have done this, just allow them to dry for an hour, and your samples are ready for testing in our accredited laboratory. However, before sending them off, make sure to carefully complete the forms that we provide – we need these forms to be able to tests your samples.
