How to Order a Life-ID DNA Test [Copy]

Depending on how you intend to make use of the test results, you may order a DNA test in several ways:

  1. Only for your own information
  2. With certified identity for use in court or with an official instance
  3. As legal expertise ordered by a court of law

 

1. Only for your own information

(can be done anonymously, normal processing time ±2 weeks -- urgent 48h processing available)

When you don't intend to use the results as proof for a third party or official instance, but only for personal informative purposes, then you are best served with the informative, informal test.

Informative DNA test: order our DNA sample collection kit for you to collect the DNA samples

  • Order the free DNA Collection Kit by priority mail.
    The kit contains everything you need to take the samples from the test participants, and to send them to the laboratory.
  • Collect the DNA samples (read more on how to do this).
  • Send everything to us, or drop them off at our lab.
  • That's all !  The DNA test results will be available within approx. 2 weeks on a hidden web page only accessible with your secret 8 character password (or by mail, if requested).

Informative DNA test: download the instruction sheet and collect the DNA samples

For urgent results, or in order to stay completely anonymous, you may even assemble your own DNA collection kit to collect the DNA samples.

  • Download the instruction sheet
  • Collect the DNA samples (read more on how to do this).
  • Fill out and sign the order form.
  • Send everything to us, or drop them off at our lab.
  • That's all !  The DNA test results will be available within approx. 2 weeks on a hidden web page only accessible with your secret 8 character password (or by mail, if requested).

The analysis report will state whether the test was positive of negative, together with an interpretation of the results. No personal information on the participants is shown. No DNA profile info will be released to third parties, nor will any such information remain in our files.

 

2. For use in court or with an official instance

(with certified identity -- urgent 48h processing available)

If you intend to use the test results to substantiate kinship claims for an out-of-court settlement, or to support your claims in court proceedings or with an official instance, you will prefer our legally certified test.

Make an appointment for DNA collection at the lab. The test participants will be invited to the laboratory for sampling. The identity of the test participants will be verified and recorded.

The analysis report will contain the identity data and document the link between the DNA test results and the identity of the people that were tested. This test can be used for legal purposes.

3. As legal expertise, ordered by a court of law

Parties involved in court proceedings may request Life-ID's legal expert to be appointed by the court to execute a legally certified DNA test, after which the appropriate participants will be invited to the lab for the collection of DNA samples.
