Paternity  tests and
Genetic identification 

We offer genetic identification tests to study the paternity and kinship between individuals, following the recommendations of the International Society for Forensic Genetics (ISFG-GHEP).

Samples

We can use several sample types: saliva, amniotic fluid, semen, hair (with hair follicle), human remains, personal belongings (toothbrush, glasses, etc.). It is required at least one sample from each individual included in the paternity study. that is to say, at least the father's and the son's ones. If you are interested in performing a laeful test, the sample must be taken in a collaborating laboratory.

For each sample, the individual genetic profile is obtained. We check paternity by comparing both profiles.

Delivery and confidentiality


The report is only delivered to the authorized person. Under no circumstance will we give results by phone. You will have your results within 48 hours for oral samples, unless we may have to verify it due to any technical reason. Other type of samples could have a longer delivery time.


Furthermore, our report includes a security hologram that makes it virtually impossible to falsify. This measure provides more confidence to the document for legal use.

Quality of results


We use the genetic identification technology commonly used by scientific police from several countries, so the result is technically guaranteed. Our procedures have the certification ISO 9001:2008.
