Why Purchase Your DNA Profile Report/Banking From PaternityUSA.com?
MOST TRUSTED LAB IN USA
Our DNA testing lab performs 3 of 4 DNA profile tests in the US. Seen on TV shows like Maury®, Steve Wilkos® & Paternity Court®, Get Accurate Answers!
We provide the most accurate DNA profiling in the USA. Don’t risk buying your DNA profile test from an entity that sends them to the lowest bidder for testing. Our lab performs all our own tests.
Quality DNA Profile Reporting and DNA Banking
Our DNA banking and profiling services allow you to prepare for the future by preserving your individual genetic profile information. With DNA profiling, you will receive an AABB certified, notarized document with your individual genetic profile listed.
If you opt for DNA banking, your genetic profile will be securely and safely stored at our AABB accredited laboratory for 15 years. You will receive a certificate of DNA Banking and you and anyone you authorize will have access to your profile for future testing if ever needed. At the time of your DNA collection, you may also authorize 1 or more people to have future access to your genetic information.
AABB Chain Of Custody Requirements
The AABB guidelines stipulate that legal DNA Banking or Profile Reporting must have valid chain of custody to be admissible in court or accepted for use in any legal matter. Chain of custody, simply put, refers to a DNA collection in the presence of a medical professional and the legal identification and consent of the test participants. In any legal siblingship test case, a neutral medical professional who is not involved with the outcome of the test must perform the sample collection.
Our lab is staffed by PhD geneticists who oversee all tests using the most advanced, state of the art technology. In reality, many smaller labs are not really AABB accredited; they only claim to be. They sell legal DNA tests, then when samples are sent in, they forward them to another lab (of their choosing) for processing. This extra step takes longer and risks the viability of your DNA. With PaternityUSA, your test samples go directly to our AABB accredited laboratory, DDC (DNA Diagnostic Center).
Why We Stand Above The Others
Smaller companies who advertise cheap DNA testing allow participants to choose their own collector. Surprisingly, they even mail the collection kit right to the client. Please beware – this practice does not follow AABB chain of custody requirements. Their cheap DNA banking or profiling can end up being very costly to your family down the road.
It’s a direct violation of AABB requirements for anyone associated with the legal sibling test to be in the possession of the collection kit. This includes any test participant, family members or friends. When collection swabs have been in the possession of someone with an interest in the test result, there could easily be suspicion of tampering. For this reason, we never ship a legal DNA collection kit to anyone other than a doctor’s office or clinic.
Secondly, a legally binding sibling test must be collected by a medical or clinic professional. With PaternityUSA.com, you can use your doctor for the DNA collection, or opt for professional collection service at one of our more than 5,000 clinic locations. Again, having someone known to the test participant act as a collector, or “witness” the DNA collection, does not meet AABB standards. A collection by an associate, friend or family member can easily be discredited; causing you to have to pay for another test.
A legal collection conducted outside of the chain of custody is easily contested and disputed in court; and more importantly will not stand up as evidence.
In contrast, we don’t bend guidelines and risk injury your case. Our lab follows every AABB requirement to help ensure your result stands up in any legal matter that may face your family. We understand the need for a legal DNA test is usually accompanied by a difficult. With that in mind, we handle each case with care and confidentiality.
The Legal Banking and DNA Profile Report Testing Process
The legal DNA process is quite simple. When you place your order, you may choose to use our professional collection service (at one of our clinic locations) or have a test collection kit shipped free UPS overnight to your doctor’s office.
If you opt to use your doctor for the DNA collection, simply provide their address when placing your order. We ship a legal DNA collection kit to them using UPS overnight delivery service. We also provide a pre-paid return mailer in the collection kit for their convenience. Please check with your doctor to make sure they agree to provide this service.
Or if you prefer, choose our professional collection option. An agent will give you a call to schedule your appointment at your convenience. We have over 5,000 clinic locations across the country to serve your collection needs.
After the collection, the samples and chain of custody documentation go directly to the lab. When received, we email you a confirmation email to let you know testing is underway. If you order email test results, we email a PDF document of your notarized test result as soon as testing is complete. A hard copy is mailed to the billing address on your order. We do not ship anything to you other than the result for our legal tests.
DNA is collected through a cheek swab, also known as a buccal swab. The swab is painlessly rubbed against the inside of the cheek to collect skin cells. As an accredited lab, all of our tests are analyzed twice, which is why we collect 4 swabs per person. As a general rule, be sure the mouth is clean before swabbing by rinsing with water. The test participants should refrain from drinking coffee or tea or smoking for 3-4 hours before the DNA collection.
Results are mailed within one week of testing completion. If you purchase email results, the result is emailed within 24 hours of testing completion.
If you simply would like a DNA profile report for your own personal knowledge or use, a non-legal profile report may be the right option for you.
Thank you for your immediate and prompt service...Highly recommendable for people seeking DNA Testings...Good job Paternity USA...Again thank you so much. Another VERY HAPPY customer 🙂
We just did a paternity test and used our doctor as the collector - the process was easy, legitimate and cheap! I highly recommend for those of us on a budget!
Awesome. Easy. Best Price Around! Got my son's birth certificate right now. Thank you all!
I purchased this Y-STR test to verify that my son is the father of my grandson. Now I know for sure this sweet little boy is my son's baby. Thanks Paternity USA for the peace of mind.
I took this test last month and my results were accurate. Easy process, good customer service and i like that they notified me of the status of my case all along the way. I always wondered and now I finally know for sure. I highly recommend you all every chance I get. Lisa L
I picked paternity usa for my immigration test for my mother and sisters. I'm so glad I did. Everything great - very good service and fast.
I don't usually write reviews, but I feel like this one is important. To have a lingering question of whether you belong in a family or not isn't anything easy to deal with. I wondered at first, because they are cheaper than everyone else, and felt like this is an area I shouldn't skimp on, but I'm so glad I picked these guys. I didn't skimp - I just found the best deal! My test result was very definitive and left no room for question. I want to let others know that you can find your answer and peace. Pick Paternity USA, they will do a great job. I can't say enough good about them. Thanks - Brenda
I am glad I chose this company for my paternity test. They scheduled an appointment for me and my daughter, it was within a couple of days, then the results were emailed to me less than a week later. I didn't have to do anything but show up for the appointment - they handled everything else from beginning to end.
Thank you guys for a process that is easy and quick. You've been so helpful! Jenn
I was given up for adoption and found a sibling through online records. We did the mtDNA test to see if we have the same mother (who is deceased), and I finally have been able to connect with my family. Even though I will always be thankful to my adoptive family, it's nice to add to that! Test was conclusive, process easy and good communication. Thanks 🙂
Immigration DNA Testing
The immigration process is a hard process for me and my family and PaternityUSA has experience and was able to help us through the whole thing. Happy with your service and I will let my friends know. Sincere thanks - the Claitte Family
I called PaternityUSA to help us with getting my children in from Jamaica, and so they performed the AABB accredited DNA test for immigration. The process only took (2) weeks, and everything was very smooth. I cannot thank these people enough.
I had bought a DNA kit at CVS pharmacy, but I wanted to see if I was the grandparent. I discovered that I could not use the drug store kit for a grandparent DNA test. I called paternityusa, and I'm very pleased with the work they performed. They really took the time to talk to me
I found my long lost brother after 40 years separation at birth. We did a y-str test, and it was very accurate. I happy to have my brother in my life again
This company did a wonderful job for our family, and we're so grateful we were able to find them on the internet. THANKS!!
