At That DNA Company we pride ourselves on a timely, confidential and high quality paternity testing service, one of the best in the UK. We will give you the answers you need, when you need it.
We will send you a bespoke DNA testing kit to the address you designate and you are in full command of the sampling process. Our DNA testing kits contain the all important consent form, one sterile mouth swab per donor, an instruction sheet regarding communications, your receipt and a pre-paid return envelope. The samples are taken via cheek cells using the swab provided. Full sampling instructions are included in the kit to help assist you with this, but if you have any difficulties at all, please call us on 0203 603 1189 and we will talk you through the process.
The That DNA Company DNA testing kits are intended for paternity testing and for personal information only. Some people call this a “peace of mind test” but we prefer “personal information DNA test”.
Once you have opened the DNA testing kit, please ensure all relevant people sign the consent form (so that we all know that they willingly agree to the DNA test) before the samples are taken. If any participants of the test are under the age of 16, we will require a person with Parental Responsibility to sign consent on the child’s behalf. Once you have the samples, return the swabs to the tubes and post back to us using the pre-paid returns envelope. The first class mail system we use is very efficient, however if you wish to track the return of the kit to us you may wish to pay for special delivery.
We run our own UK based and accredited DNA testing laboratories in the Durham Genome Centre, Lanchester, Co Durham. It is a state of the art facility and we do not send samples to other laboratories (in fact some of them send them to us !).
You may choose between our standard service (four working day turnaround) or our accelerated service (two working day turnaround). This means working days from the day we receive the samples.
You can rest assured that the confidentiality of your DNA test information is assured.
