DNA Paternity Test available again
FSLMA offers DNA paternity testing. Paternity testing provides scientific evidence of whether a man can be a child’s biological father. Paternity is determined by comparing the child’s DNA profile with the DNA profile of the alleged father. This procedure involves collecting and examining the DNA of a small sample of blood from a child and the potential father. DNA testing is generally considered to be the most accurate testing method available. DNA paternity testing can show that a man is highly likely to be the father with about 99.9% accuracy, or that he is excluded as being the father with 100% accuracy. For greatest accuracy in a DNA paternity test, we recommend testing the mother’s sample whenever possible. Your DNA samples will be sent securely in tamper-proof packaging to an accredited (ISO 15189), professional and experienced laboratory in the Netherlands where DNA testing is performed that meets with the highest quality standards. Our laboratory personnel will carefully handle and confidential prepare your DNA samples for processing. In combination with a strict identification procedure (valid identity card), the test is legal. Within 4 weeks the results are reported in a document that can be submitted at law courts and government departments in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Read more about the procedures in our information folder “Legal (DNA) paternity testing” available at LabHOH collection locations.
