We have mobile collectors available in many areas. This is
useful in many situations, for example, having a collection
performed while the child is still in the hospital. Some people
prefer to have a collector visit their home rather than traveling
to a facility. There will be an additional fee for mobile services.
The fee depends on the distance the collector will be

We are able to perform testing when an individual is deceased if
there is a sample available. These test results can be used for
legal reasons. We work with medical examiners, coroners, hospitals,
funeral homes and others who may be holding a sample belonging to
the deceased. Samples, such as, blood, hair, finger nails, toe
nails, etc. are acceptable. We will need to know the name, address
and phone number of the facility that has the sample. Also, the
next of kin will need to sign a release giving permission for the
sample to be released to us. We can provide a release form if
Pricing starts at $499.
We are able to perform testing while an individual is
incarcerated. These test results can be used for legal reasons. We
prefer to send a collector to the facility for the collection.
However, some facilities have a qualified person to collect the
sample and will not permit an outside collector. In such cases, we
will send a kit to the facility so the sample can be returned to
the testing lab. Prior to scheduling the testing, you will need to
determine which of the above scenarios fits your situation. We will
also need the name, address and phone number of the facility.
Pricing starts at $499.
We are able to perform DNA testing using non-standard samples. A
non-standard sample is any sample other than saliva or blood, such
as, hair, finger nails, toe nails, a toothbrush, a drinking glass,
gum etc. We can use this method to determine a relationship by
comparing the DNA off of a non-standard sample to a standard saliva
sample of another party. This is beneficial in many scenarios, such
as, when an individual is not available to have the saliva
collected or when wanting to have DNA testing done without an
individuals knowledge. For example, some parents may not want to
involve a child in the collection procedure of DNA testing and
would rather send a non-standard sample instead.
When handling a sample, be sure to protect it from
contamination. Always wear gloves and be sure to place the sample
directly into a paper bag or envelope. Do not allow the sample to
come in contact with any object and never use a plastic bag, which
promotes the growth of bacteria. Also, be sure to seal the paper
bag or envelope securely.
*Important- Please be advised that sometimes we are not able to
extract DNA from a non-standard sample, and therefore, there is
some risk involved when choosing this option. While the success
rate is very high, we cannot guarantee a result.
The results of testing performed using a non-standard sample in
this type of scenario can not be used for any legal reason.
Pricing starts at $549.
We are able to perform DNA testing on a pregnant woman. These
test results can be used for legal reasons. There are 2 different
types of samples we can use for this test:
1) CVS (Chorionic Villus Sample) -This collection involves
inserting a catheter through the cervix and removing portions of
the chorionic villi. CVS is typically performed between the 10th
and 12th weeks of pregnancy.
2) Amniocentesis - An invasive procedure that involves inserting a
needle into the mother's abdomen to withdraw a small amount of
amniotic fluid from the amniotic sac which surrounds the developing
fetus. Amniotic samples are collected between the 12th and 21st
weeks of pregnancy. Most often, it is preferred to wait until the
20th or 21st week.
The above samples can only be collected by your OB/GYN. Some
OB's will not collect either sample because there is some risk to
the unborn child. If your OB does agree to perform one of the above
collections, we will need their mailing address and phone number so
we can send a kit and have the sample returned to the lab for
testing. We will send the Mother and Alleged Father into a facility
for the buccal swab collection.
Note: This option requires both the Mother and Alleged Father be
tested for results to be accurate.
Our fee for this service is $899.
*Pricing does not include the fees charged by your OB.
