Laboratory Accreditation

Our partner laboratory has an ISO 17025 accreditation which is an accreditation designated for laboratories performing this type of testing. ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, awards this accreditation only to laboratories that are periodically monitored and that take part in proficiency testing schemes. Obtaining and maintaining an ISO accreditation means that the laboratory has to meet and adhere to strict standards and is regularly audited.

We pride ourselves in providing accredited DNA testing that translates into a quality service for our clients. The laboratory that performs our testing is required to conform to a strict set of standards as dictated by a major accrediting body. This means that apart from the precision of our tests, all our testing is done by a highly qualified scientific team and using state of the art equipment.

To be noted that there are many types of laboratories including physics laboratory, medical laboratories, wet laboratory, as well as laboratories used by computer scientists. DNA testing laboratories are one type of laboratory but all labs share common features. Other types of laboratories differ very much in scope- these include media labs and film labs.

What does accreditation mean for our clients?

Accreditation means that your results are guaranteed to be scientifically sound because the laboratories in which they are processed will have performed the testing in line with the necessary standards.  An ISO accreditation as this ensures that our clients will receive results that are accurate, reliable and conducive to peace of mind. It guarantees the accuracy of our DNA tests.

How accurate is DNA testing?

All our DNA testing is performed on 21 loci or genetic markers in order to ensure that we provide genetic testing of the highest level of accuracy possible. For example, we are able to provide results for a paternity test that will establish with a 100% accuracy that the alleged father is not the biological father of the child, and a probability in excess of 99.99% that the alleged father is the biological father of the child.

We have drawn up a comprehensive section which will give you further insight into understanding your results where we have provided a detailed explanation in order to help you understand the DNA report.
