Select Test Type
Private Knowledge or Legal?
SecuriGene’s laboratory offers one of the industry’s largest selection of private and court-admissible DNA tests.
PRIVATE HOME DNA TEST
The Private Knowledge Home DNA Testing option is recommended if results of the DNA test are not required for use in court. This test will provide the same conclusive results as the legal test. If a private test is chosen, the DNA collection kit will be shipped directly to you, and sample collection will be performed in the privacy of your own home. The buccal (mouth) swab sample collection process is designed to be quick, painless and easy to do.
LEGAL DNA TEST
The Legally Admissible DNA Testing option is intended for court use and is accepted as legal proof of paternity, kinship or identification in courts throughout North America. If the legal test option is chosen, chain-of-custody protocol will be required, and the sample collection must be performed by an unbiased third party (such as a doctor or a lawyer) in order to ensure proper identification, witnessing and fingerprinting of the parties involved.
Is the Private Home DNA Paternity Test as Accurate as the Legal Paternity Test?
Both the private and the legal test provide the same conclusive results. The only difference between the two are whether the sample collection is performed and witnessed by an unbiased individual, and whether it follows a chain-of-custody.
