Legal DNA Test – Recognised in Court
At OQPS we handle all aspects of Legal DNA testing, we liaise with each party’s solicitors and organise DNA test appointments with our doctors for clients. Very often we organise separate collection appointments for the mother and child and the alleged father. We strive to handle this process in a timely and efficient manner.
We have a large network of partner collection clinics all over Ireland. We can organise a collection for you or your client within two working days no matter where you are in Ireland. We organise a considerable number of legal DNA tests for clients in worldwide and have organised tests in Europe, America, Asia, Australia and Africa.
Our Legal paternity testing procedure follows a strict chain of custody which ensures that our test results are legally defensible in court. Strict chain of custody requires that the samples are collected by a doctor, photo identification is taken from all parties along with 2 recent passport photographs and DNA samples are securely packed for transit to the laboratory. When the samples arrive at the laboratory they are inspected thoroughly for tampering before DNA testing is conducted. DNA analysis takes 4 working day and results are produced and sent to all parties.
