Home DNA sample collection kit available in Ghana at DNA Center Ghana in Accra

 

Many people still think they have to come to our clinic to have samples taken for DNA test. The truth  is that now you do not have to. How?…..Why?….. Well, our DNA Center developed protocol and procedures that you can collect saliva sample yourself at home or elsewhere outside our clinic using our DNA Sampling Kit and bring the samples to us when collected or even send it to us (we can arrange our courier to pick up the samples from you anywhere in Ghana or elsewhere in Africa).

To collect saliva samples at home is very simple, just swab the inside of the mouth with provided sterile cotton applicator and that is it. Now, you put the applicators inside provided sample envelopes and send the whole kit back to us for testing.

The results of home DNA test are as reliable as if you had your samples collected by one of our medical lab assistants at our facility, because our DNA testing processes are robust, accredited and 100% accurate.

If you need advise, please call our medical lab assistants at 0302-932267.

USA Immigration DNA test

Many clients planning resettlement or joining their families in United States are requested to provide the proof of their biological relationship by US Embassy in Accra or Immigration Agencies in USA.

DNA Center Ghana can provide such proof through its AABB accredited laboratory and immigration DNA tests. All you need to provide is official request from US Embassy or US Immigration Authority (if you have it) baring the case number, copy of your national ID (passport, voter’s ID, birth certificate….), one passport size picture and filled immigration DNA test application form. Then you just wait for your appointment and come to have your sample collected. If one of the tested individuals resides outside Ghana, we will contact them and arrange the sample collection at their location or nearby.

US Immigration DNA test to prove biological relationship (e.g. paternity or maternity) has to be AABB certified to be recognized by United States authorities. DNA Center Ghana is the only DNA facility in Ghana providing AABB accredited testing services for most favourable price. Also, through the network of collection points within USA, we can save you the trip to Ghana to have your sample collected. We will direct you to the nearest collection point to take your sample.

When we receive samples from all tested individuals, we can start DNA testing and finally send you the result in 7 working days. If you are using a lawyer or have already applied at US Embassy, we can send a copy directly to nominated lawyer or requesting authority at no additional cost (except the postage).

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 :-).

With DNA Center Ghana, whether you want to conduct a annonymous, legal or immigration DNA paternity test, you can stay assured that our testing process is highly accurate and that the information you share us with will be kept 100% confidential. 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.
