DNA Forensic Services

easyDNA provides a state-of-the-art DNA forensic testing service for clients that need to do a DNA test but are not able to obtain a standard oral swab for DNA testing purposes. Our highly experienced laboratory can assist these clients through services such as hair DNA testing in the event they are able to supply an alternative DNA sample.

easyDNA can analyse a comprehensive list of samples for DNA and therefore can cater for a wide range of cases and requirements. Once the DNA is extracted it is process in the same manner as when a normal oral swab is used. Hence the accuracy of the result is not effected. Because of this the sample can be used for any of our DNA tests including our standard DNA paternity testing.

We recommend that you review the list below and identify the type of sample you want to submit. The list also includes general information as well as the additional cost per sample. Following that you should contact our Forensic DNA testing team to discuss your case and quote you accordingly.
