Frequently Asked Questions

Selecting an accredited DNA testing laboratory is essential for several reasons. Firstly, accreditation serves as a mark of legitimacy and trustworthiness. It assures you that the laboratory meets stringent standards and follows established protocols to ensure accurate and reliable testing.

Accreditation also guarantees the highest quality of testing. Accredited laboratories undergo comprehensive evaluations by reputable organizations to assess their proficiency and competence. By choosing an accredited laboratory, you can have confidence in the precision and integrity of your test results.

At Genetrack, we take pride in being one of the few DNA laboratories worldwide to have received all major internationally recognized and prestigious DNA laboratory accreditations. These include the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), American Association of Blood Banks (AABB), College of American Pathologists (CAP), Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), and ISO/IEC 17025, a testament to our commitment to upholding the highest standards in DNA testing.

Yes, the home DNA test is just as accurate as the legal DNA test. Both tests are performed in our accredited laboratory and use the same advanced technology and rigorous testing procedures to analyze the DNA samples. The results from both tests are equally accurate and reliable.

The main difference between the two tests is not the accuracy of the results, but the method of sample collection and the documentation process. For a home DNA test, you collect the samples yourself at home, while for a legal DNA test, the sample collection must be witnessed by a neutral third party, such as a medical professional or a legal representative, to maintain a chain of custody. This chain of custody process is what makes the results of a legal DNA test admissible in court.

So, if you need the test results for legal purposes, such as child custody cases, child support disputes, inheritance claims, or immigration applications, you would need to opt for the legal DNA test. If you're simply seeking to confirm a biological relationship for personal knowledge, the home DNA test would be sufficient.

Absolutely! If the participants live in different cities or even different countries, we offer the flexibility to ship the DNA test kit to multiple addresses. To request a split kit, simply provide the names and addresses where each kit should be mailed in the comments section of the order form and include a note saying "please split this kit". Please note that an additional fee of $10 will apply per additional address.

Each component in the kit is labelled with barcodes that are specific to your test order. This means that even if you choose to split the kit and send the respective components to each party for sample collection, the samples will still be tested together once they arrive at the laboratory. This ensures that all samples are correctly matched to your test order, providing accurate and reliable results.

Yes, there is no age limit for DNA testing so our relationship DNA tests can be performed on infants as well as adults. The DNA sample is collected using a simple and painless cheek swab.
