to Order a Paternity Test
you request the Paternity
DNA Collection HomeKit
the free Paternity
DNA Collection Kit by priority
mail. The kit contains everything you need to
take the samples from the test participants, and to send them to the laboratory.
Option 2: we
verify the identity of the participants
Make an appointment
by phone or e-mail. The test participants will be invited to the laboratory for sampling. The identity of the test
participants will be verified and recorded.
The report will contain the identity data
and document the link between the results of
the DNA test and the identity of the people
that were tested. This test can be used for
3: Do-it-yourself analysis request
For urgent results, or in order to stay completely
anonymous, you can collect your own DNA samples,
and send them to the lab for analysis. Use
a clean Q-tip to scrape some saliva from the
inside of the cheek of each test participant.
Make sure that every sample only contains
DNA from one single person and package the
samples separately to prevent cross-contamination
(read more on how
to collect samples). Label
each sample, indicating whether it contains
DNA from the child or the alleged father.
Include the analysis fee with the samples
and label the envelope with an identification
code of exactly 8 alphabetic characters ('A'-'Z').
Download, print and fill out the
order form. Send everything
to: Life-ID, Technologiepark 3, B-9052 Zwijnaarde
The DNA test results will be made available
on a hidden
web page only accessible with
your secret 8 character password.
The analysis report will only mention whether
the test was positive of negative, together with
an interpretation of the results. Obviously, no
personal information is shown. No DNA profile
info will be released, nor will any such information
remain in our files.
