Identilab offers a range of services in human identification:
Parentage Testing (peace-of-mind and legally admissible)
A paternity test determines whether a man is the true biological father of a child. Similarly, a maternity test determines whether a woman is the true biological mother of a child.
Immigration testing is performed when a visa or citizenship applicant is required to provide the Department of Home Affairs with evidence of a biological relationship between two or more people.
Extended Relationship/Kinship Testing
Extended relationship/kinship testing determines the likelihood of a genetic relationship between two or more people. Relationships that can be tested include siblings, half siblings, aunt/uncle – niece/nephew, and grandparent-grandchild.
Having a copy of your DNA profile on file is useful for a number of reasons. Like us, you might just love science! Alternatively, you might like your DNA profile on record for more serious reasons, such as estate planning, or because you are employed in a high risk profession.
DNA testing accurately confirms if twins/triplets are identical or fraternal (non-identical). Identical twins/triplets will exhibit the same DNA profile, while fraternal twins/triplets will have different DNA profiles.
Identilab holds ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation from the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), ensuring that you receive accurate and reliable results which, if collected appropriately, are legally admissible.
