The world's most advanced immigration paternity test when proving the biological father of a child.
When applying for British citizenship the UK border agency may require a DNA test to prove a biological relationship between the applicant and a UK resident. Our immigration paternity tests are accepted by the UK Border Agency and can help individuals with their applications.
This immigration paternity test is required for the following reasons:
For UKBA & British Embassy court of custody
Changing the name on a birth certificate
Our immigration paternity test looks at a minimum of 21 markers, and tests are run twice for 100% accuracy. This test requires a DNA sample to be taken by a professional doctor, nurse, or accredited sampler, and cannot be self-administrated. Results are issued within 3-5 working days. Our labs conduct legal DNA testing that is ISO/IEC:17025 accredited and ISO:9001, ISO:9001, ISO:27001 and ISO:14001 certified for use in the UK court system.

We re-test to ensure greater accuracy
We often get calls from clients who've had their DNA test conducted by a lab that only examines 16 DNA markers, meaning they've ended up with results that aren't certain. We examine a minimum of 21 markers and run test twice to ensure accuracy.
The case below is such an example, providing a 78% result. This is NOT conclusive as it has a one in four chance of being wrong! The customer chose to re-test at our lab and when looking at 44 DNA markers the result came back as 99.99%. Of course, had the client chosen our lab first they would have had the right result first time round.
