Forensic Paternity Test

Private forensic paternity test refers to using those "non-standard" samples that are used when standard samples (buccal swabs) are not possible to obtain (e.g. person(s) may be missing, deceased or unwilling). These forensic samples can be submited to our DNA Identity Testing Center for analysis.

Forensic Science

Forensic science (often shortened to forensics) is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences to answer questions of interest to the legal system. This may be in relation to a crime or to a civil action. But besides its relevance to the underlying legal system, more generally forensics encompasses the accepted scholarly or scientific methodology and norms under which the facts regarding an event, or an artifact, or some other physical item (such as a corpse, or cadaver, for example) are to the broader notion of authentication whereby an interest outside of a legal form exists in determining whether an object is in fact what it purports to be, or is alleged as being.

Litigation science

Litigation science describes analyses or data developed or produced expressly for use in a trial, versus those produced in the course of independent research. This distinction was made by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals when evaluating the admissibility of experts.
