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.

First non-invasive prenatal DNA paternity testing in Ghana

DNA Center Ghana is proud to announce new advanced non-invasive prenatal paternity test. This test can confirm or exclude the paternity for unborn child during the pregnancy provided the mother is at least 11 weeks pregnant. To run the test we only need to have a sample of whole blood from mother and alleged father obtained through standard blood draw performed by any nurse or phlebotomist. We do not use amniocentesis or CVS for sample collection and that makes our non-invasive test 100% safe for mother and the fetus. Our facility will provide special blood sample collection kit for every case.

Once the blood is collected from the mother and alleged father, circulating cell-free fetal DNA is separated from the mothers blood and DNA profile is prepared for the unborn baby and alleged father. Our test is more specific and sensitive due to the fact that cell-free fetal DNA is used. Other laboratories offer prenatal tests using amniocentesis, CVS or whole blood which increses the risk of misdiagnosis.

We are the first and only facility offering non-invasive prenatal paternity test in Ghana. Our tests are performed in AABB/ISO17025 accredited laboratory by scientific staff with many years of DNA analysis experience.
