DNA Profiling

Our DNA profiling service allows individuals to obtain a record of their genetic profile—a unique combination of 16 markers found in their DNA that serves as a permanent genetic ID. Organizations and private individuals choose to obtain records of their DNA profiles in case identification is ever needed, as in the following examples:

  • To provide a standard for comparison and identification of people in high-risk professions, such as men and women in the military, law enforcement personnel, firefighters, and overseas contractors
  • To assist with the identification of missing persons
  • To give clues about the trail of a missing loved one

Sample Collection
We will send you an easy-to-use DNA collection kit with detailed instructions and a postage-paid envelope for shipping your samples back to our laboratory.

Samples for a DNA test are routinely collected using the painless and simple buccal swab—similar to a cotton-tipped swab, but made of the special material Dacron®. The swab is rubbed against the inside cheek of the test participant, and loose cheek cells adhere to the swab. Unlike regular cotton swabs, Dacron® provides a consistent surface for sample collection and DNA extraction.

Testing Fees
The fees depend on how many markers are desired. Below is a pricing chart. Turn around time for all is 5-7 business days.

Description Price
16 Marker Profile $114.00
20 Marker Profile $114.00
25 Marker Profile $195.00
DNA Sample Storage $180.00

Optional DNA Banking
You may elect to take advantage of DNA sample storage for an additional fee. The sample will be returned in a vault package where it is stable for at least 11 years at room temperature. That is purchased separately.

Test Procedures
In the test, the individual’s DNA is extracted and purified. The DNA is then combined with 16 different DNA primers that target specific locations (loci) in the DNA molecule for amplification. The DNA segments at these loci are called markers, because they serve as identifying marks for individuals.

The DNA-primer mix goes through heating and cooling cycles to amplify the markers in a molecular xeroxing process known as the Polymerase Chain Reaction. Once the markers are amplified, they are detected by sensitive instrumentation, which determines the marker sizes at each DNA locus tested.

Each DNA locus is comprised by two alleles, or copies, of the marker—one inherited from the mother and one inherited from the father. Thus, the DNA profile report, also called a DNA typing report, will typically list two marker sizes for each locus. The combination of sizes for the 16 markers represents a DNA profile that is unique for that individual.

Additional marker profiles use a similar process, just with more primers.

Our DNA banking service provides organizations and private individuals with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their DNA samples are stored in a safe and highly secured environment. Banked DNA may be used for future DNA tests, for example:

To protect against illegitimate claims on an individual’s estate
To provide a standard for comparison and identification of people in high-risk professions, such as men and women in the military, law enforcement personnel, firefighters, and overseas contractors
To assist with the identification of missing persons or give clues about the trail of a missing loved one
To identify inherited traits, such as genetic diseases and other physical characteristics
Stored DNA provides a genetic history that will become vitally important as the genomic puzzle is completed. DNA from an elderly parent could one day provide clues about inherited diseases and other genetic issues. Some day very soon, this type of family tree knowledge could prove lifesaving.

Our services are completely confidential. We only release information on banked DNA to persons you authorize. There are two service options for you to choose from:

Chain of Custody DNA Banking
Chain of Custody DNA Banking and Profiling
Chain of Custody DNA Banking
In Chain of Custody DNA Banking, DNA samples are collected and stored using a process that ensures courts and other government agencies will consider the results of any future DNA testing on the stored DNA.

In compliance with Chain of Custody procedures, your DNA sample will be collected by a trained professional. Your DNA collection appointment will be scheduled at a hospital or laboratory near you. Upon banking your DNA, we will provide you with a banking certificate stating the storage period (15 years), the names of persons you authorize to retrieve or use your samples, and other important information.

Chain of Custody DNA Banking and Profiling
Our DNA banking and profiling service allows individuals to store their DNA sample at a safe, secure facility and obtain a record of their genetic profile. We run a DNA test on the samples using markers for 16 loci, including the 13 CODIS loci that are recognized worldwide as standards for human identity testing.

You will receive two documents when you choose the DNA Banking and Profiling option: a Typing Report listing your allele sizes (your genetic profile) and a Banking Certificate stating the storage period and the names of persons you authorize to retrieve and/or use the DNA samples. Samples are collected using the Chain of Custody process.

*Residents of CA, MD, NY States require the testing to be ordered by a licensed healthcare provider in your state. Please include a prescription for testing when sending in your sample.
