Paternity Testing Labtests are 100 times more discriminating than the industry standard. Average positive test results exceed 99.99%. We test 16 markers vs. the 8 to 10 tested in most labs and verify the sex of all tested individuals to assure you of reliable results. Additionally, we run all exclusions twice to confirm 100% exclusion.
DNA Testing is the most accurate and effective technology available today. Genelex's testing proves or disproves paternity in all cases. Each report clearly states:
The tested man is not excluded. The statistics in the report establish that he is the biological father to an extremely high degree of certainty.
Reports are provided to all tested adults and their designated representatives. The report is a confidential, notarized legal document that has a scientific description of the genetic patterns determined for each individual.
We also include information that explains the test results in everyday language. When required, we provide affidavits, depositions or testimony. Our test results have been extensively scrutinized and uniformly accepted by courts, child support enforcement agencies and the United States Immigration and Naturalization service.
