Secure, Conclusive Results
DNA Parentage Testing is the most reliable and powerful method of proving or disproving parentage. It conclusively answers difficult questions, resolves disputes, helps streamline court proceedings and facilitates pretrial settlements.
Franey Medical Lab provides DNA Parentage Testing in conjunction with DNA Diagnostics Center, the largest most experienced private DNA paternity testing laboratory in the U.S. and around the world.
The Testing Process
To ensure a strict chain-of-custody, all parties are positively identified, photographed and fingerprinted when samples are collected. We store all DNA samples in a secured facility to ensure accurate, legally defensible results. A notarized test report will be sent to all tested parties and attorneys if requested. No results are given over the phone.
DNA testing is the most conclusive and widely accepted method for testing biological relationships. DNA Diagnostics Center is one of the few laboratories to offer both PCR and RFLP technologies; therefore, we can provide the most accurate and definitive results in the industry. We routinely provide results with a probability of 99.99% or greater for inclusion and 100% for exclusion.
Franey Medical Lab works with the DNA Diagnostics Center to ensure that your results will be admissible in a court of law. The DNA Diagnostics Center is accredited by the AABB, CLIA and NYSDOH. Their reports are recognized by courts in the U.S. and most countries. The test results generated are routinely 10 to 1000 times more accurate than what the court requires for proof of parentage. Expert testimony services are available through DNA Diagnostics Center.
