About Our Work

DNA typing is the most powerful genetic testing method available. A variety of sample types can be used as a source of DNA. The most typical sample used is a mouth (buccal) swab that is quickly and painlessly collected. We are also able to use virtually any sample of biological origin as a source of DNA that is suitable for testing.
