More than 5 reasons why to choose DNA test from DNA Center Ghana

DNA Center Ghana is currently the most reliable laboratory providing the most accurate and internationally accredited DNA testing in Ghana. Some of the laboratories in Ghana attempted to undertake DNA testing, but lack in accreditation, experience, accuracy and reliability.

When one chooses the laboratory to have their DNA test done, the most important things to check are the number of genetic markers the test detects, accreditation, accuracy and sampling procedures.

1. Our DNA tests detect minimum 20 STR loci (genetic markers), which increase the accuracy by unprecedented 500% compared to outdated 16 STR loci DNA tests still performed in Ghana. 16 genetic marker tests may report false reports in some cases! Our DNA paternity tests do not require the sample of the mother to be accurate, however we can add the mother’s sample when available.

2. All our tests are internationally accredited ISO17025, AABB, approved by UK Ministry of Justice, CIC accredited for Canadian Immigration tests, NATA accredited for Australian immigration tests. Our DNA tests results are recognized anywhere in the world.

3. Every DNA test result is confirmed by another independent DNA test before finally reported to the client. Using this Dual Process makes the testing and reporting most reliable. Every DNA test report issued by DNA Center Ghana Limited is most comprehensive, showing the names of tested individuals, individual results for all 20 tested genetic markers, word explanation and paternity probability in percentage.

4. For our clients who need to undertake immigration DNA tests and one of the tested individuals do not reside in Ghana, we can offer our international services. Person doesn’t have to come to Ghana to have their sample collected and spend thousands of $$$$. We will organize sample collection outside Ghana through the network of our collection points in UK, Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and elsewhere in the world.

5. For clients living outside Accra, our laboratory offers home collection service. Client will receive home DNA collection kit, have their cheek swab (saliva sample) collected and sends it back to us for processing via prepaid secured delivery service. We save you time and money to travel to Accra from far away.

6. The most importantly, we enforce the client’s privacy and discrete handling of each case. We operate strictly by appointments, so each client has time and space to have their samples collected discretely without being met by number of other clients in the waiting room. After sample collection, all samples are bar-coded and processed under specific codes to comply with international standards.

DNA test is life changing decision, be smart, choose quality and reliability. Our laboratory has more then 15 years experience in DNA testing worldwide and over 4 years in Ghana.
