Paternity DNA Testing in our private Philadelphia Pennsylvania office, one of our many other offices, or mobile testing where we meet you! Determining relations, or possible relationships, between family members will lead to a family secured from unanswerd questions or acquisitions. Paternity finds the bond between Mother, Farther and Child.

The unmarried birth rate is at an all-time high in the United States, topping out at in confirmed statistics at 36.8% in 2006 and possibly as high as 40% in 2008. Social and governmental agencies alike are coping with establishing paternity for children.

Grand Paternity seeks to establish and secure the bind across generations. Paternity Testing NOT just for parents anymore!

According to AARP, nearly 6 million children are raised in households headed by grandparents or other relatives; 2.5 million of these children are without parents in the household at all, leaving their care and upbringing to their grandparents or other relatives. In light of the high out-of-wedlock birth rate, some grandparents must take an extra step and establish their biological relationship through DNA testing in order to gain legal guardianship or visitation rights to their grandchild.

Siblingships DNA testing can forever and truthfully bind brothers and sisters. Whether the family members are all located in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, or anywhere else in the world, our case manager assigned to your case will do all the required coordination of DNA Testing needed among all the members, no matter where they are located.

Forensics DNA collection and analysis gives the criminal justice field a powerful tool for convicting the guilty and exonerating the innocent. DNA profiling (also called DNA testing, DNA typing, or genetic fingerprinting) is a technique employed by forensic scientists to assist in the identification of individuals on the basis of their respective DNA profiles. DNA profiles are encrypted sets of numbers that reflect a person's DNA makeup, which can also be used as the person's identifier. DNA profiling should not be confused with full genome sequencing. It is used in, for example, parental testing and rape investigation.

Infidelity DNA testing for people who suspect their partner is being unfaithful. This DNA Test is done on an artifact such as clothing, to test for the presence of another person's genetic material. You can visit our office in Philadelphia PA to submit this item(s) or mail it to us. Since ONLY one case manager will be hamdling your case, you can be assured of the upmost in privacy and security. A Chain of Custody test can be performed, for acceptance and use in a legal matter in Pennsylvania.

Identification Genetic material that is found in DNA is a unique identifier, used for identifying a particular individual as the source of the human genetic material in a sample such as semen, blood, or hair.

Crime DNA analysis is a powerful tool because each person's DNA is unique (with the exception of identical twins). Therefore, DNA evidence collected from a crime scene can implicate or eliminate a suspect, similar to the use of fingerprints. It also can analyze unidentified remains through DNA comparisons from relatives.

The United States State Department often requires this verification before allowing a United States citizen to sponsor an immigrant.
