In Need of a DNA Paternity Test?

Legal paternity testing provides results that may be used as proof of relationship for child support, custody, immigration, birth certificate, Social Security, or other legal reason.

This type of paternity test is often referred to as “chain of custody” testing and it must be completed at an approved paternity-testing collection site. Need help outside of our area? That’s not a problem with our large and convenient access to a network of collection sites.

Home Paternity Testing

If you are seeking an answer for personal knowledge or peace of mind only, then a home paternity test kit is an excellent choice. Due to the fact that test participants collect and submit their own DNA, results are not court-admissible. Contact us today for your in-home kit.


Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test

A prenatal paternity test is for couples seeking answers while the mother is still pregnant. This technologically advanced, non-invasive test is accurate and can be performed as early as 7 weeks into the pregnancy. This is a completely safe test for the mother and the baby.

DNA Lifestyle Testing

There is a lot you can learn about yourself through DNA testing. Want to discover strategies for your optimal health? You can do this through genetics. The analysis of your genes is related to weight management and skin care. 

You are then given information that can help you make important decisions like exercise strategies and information about nutrition. A DNA lifestyle test also provides scientifically-based insights about ingredients and treatments.  This information might then help you achieve beautiful and more youthful-looking skin.
