Deciding which type of DNA test is right for you all depends on what the results might be used for. If the reasoning for your DNA test is to confirm a relationship for your own personal knowledge, a home DNA test is a perfect fit. However, if your DNA results need to hold up in court due to name change, custody, or any other legal matter, then a legal DNA test is necessary.
Legal DNA tests must be collected at an accredited laboratory location, to ensure that the strict chain of custody procedures are being upheld. Our Columbia DNA testing laboratory trains all technicians to follow these procedures to ensure that results may be used for any legal matter.
