Key advantages of our DNA test analyzing 20 genetic markers

To start this article off, remember, not all DNA tests are the same quality! In past couple of years we have seen some labs trying to introduce their own DNA testing services. Some of them indeed ran and may still run some number of DNA tests. However, there are few factors one should consider when it comes to DNA testing and statistical result interpretation.

dna test ghana, paternity test, 20 genetic markers, 20 str loci, dna center, dna lab ghana, dna clinicToday we are the only laboratory in Ghana offering DNA tests detecting 20 genetic markers! All other labs offer less accurate tests detecting only 16 genetic markers for same or higher cost than DNA Center Ghana. How important are extra 4 genetic markers? Well, importance is quite significant, extra 4 genetic markers in DNA analysis increase identification power of the test more than 500%. In other words it means that DNA test result of our test is extremely accurate as it eliminates inconclusive and false positive results due to higher number of genetic markers tested.

Our premium quality DNA tests are the most popular tests in Ghana as we have zero number of inconclusive results due to more accurate analysis using 20 genetic markers and dual testing. Other DNA tests offered in Ghana, test less genetic markers and do not confirm the result data. Our dual testing confirms each result by another independent confirmatory test to provide absolutely the best DNA testing service to our clients in Ghana.

Genetic markers used in our DNA tests are the same markers used by Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) used by international DNA laboratories, hence our tests are recognized internationally (of course including Ghana) not only locally.

Last but not least, each result is reviewed by laboratory director to confirm the validity of the report. We are not DNA report mass-producing laboratory, but we take time to dedicate to each case and treat it with most care and high level of professionalism. The whole process from sample collection down to the final report is professional, discrete and personalized.

Is request for paternity test offensive to women?

DNA paternity testing carried out by DNA Center Ghana offers you a highly accurate method for clarifying and confirming biological paternity. We use the most advanced DNA testing technology to carry out your paternity test for complete peace of mind.

A lot of women may find it offensive if their husband would be requesting for a DNA test. For most of them it’s a clear sign of mistrust and an insult because their husbands would not tell them. From men’s point of view, they want to do the test if their wife has a cheating history or the relationship is on and off, no obvious affairs. Some (very few) women wants their man to step up and say it instead of doing it behind their back. It is a hard choice – to go throgh this without offending them anyway :-).

Offensive or NOT, it is our best interest to provide exceptional service and give much needed assistance to our clients accross Ghana and West African sub-region.

DNA testing environment in Ghana

During past 12 months we all registered request increase for DNA tests, especially then paternity tests. Second most requested test in Ghana is DNA test for immigration purposes.

We also see attempts of local hospitals and clinics to offer DNA analysis as a response to demand for DNA tests. It seems that days of having only one, not very reliable option to run the DNA tests are gone.

DNA Center Ghana is the first facility offering full range of accredited DNA tests, using advanced techniques and approaches to analysis of DNA. We no more require blood samples to perform common tests, such as paternity test. We require only simple buccal swab from the tested individual. Our sample collection procedure is well accepted by babies, children and those scared of needles. Processing of samples depends on the type of the test, but in average it takes 5 working days. When you are choosing the company, hospital, clinic or laboratory for DNA test, find out first what samples they require, time to process the sample, result reporting and accreditation. Quality of the test is the most important factor you want to look at.

DNA Center Ghana offers ISO17025 accredited service, experience, affordable price and our average DNA test accuracy is 99.99%. This is what makes us a key player in DNA testing in Ghana today.
