Professional DNA Sample Collection
Court Admissible Tests require the sample collection kit be shipped and DNA samples collected by an unrelated 3rd party who has no interest in the test outcome. You have the option of using an unrelated 3rd party sample collector of your choice, or if you are located in the United States, the laboratory can schedule a Professional DNA Sample Collection for you. A Case Specialist will contact you before the DNA sample collection kit is shipped to make sure everything is in order.
NOTE: Please visit our UK website if you are looking for a Ministry of Justice accredited test.
This DNA test definitively determines whether twins are identical or fraternal by testing the two individuals in question.
Identical twins come from one fertilized egg, called a zygote. The zygote, which usually develops into one child, grows and splits early in development to form two embryos, creating twins with the exact same DNA. Fraternal twins, on the other hand, develop when two different eggs in the mother’s womb are fertilized by two different sperms. Fraternal twins will not have exactly the same DNA.
Court admissible DNA testing requires strict sample collection procedures and stringent documentation requirements. Endeavor DNA Laboratories maintains a network of approved sample collection sites across the United States. Our expert case managers will work with you to schedule a sample collection in your area at a time convenient for you.
After we receive your samples, AABB-accredited court admissible test results will be completed in as little as 2 business days.
