DNA Profile Testing
At easyDNA we offer you the possibility of ordering your own personal DNA profile which is unique to yourself. The DNA profile is at the basis of all our DNA testing because apart from providing identification of a person it can also be used to determine biological relations between individuals by comparing their DNA. All our testing is performed through the analysis of 16 different genetic markers which will be shown on your DNA Profile result that will be sent to you when the analysis is completed.
Uses for your DNA profile
The DNA profiling service will generate a profile that is unique to the individual and therefore clearly be used for a variety of purposes that range from identification of human remains to confirming rightful claims on an inheritance. In such events having a pre-existing DNA profile can facilitate the identification of individuals involved in the case as well as close relatives.
The service can therefore be useful to organisations such as insurance companies, security services companies, legal services companies (e.g. lawyers and notaries) as well as private individuals such as individuals with large estates, corporate executives and personnel in high risk positions.
How does the DNA profiling service work?
All our DNA profiles are processed by our internationally accredited DNA testing laboratory which has been awarded an ISO 17025 certification for competence in DNA testing. Click here to learn more about our laboratory.
The results are therefore highly accurate, and are the same as the profiles used in DNA Forensic applications for human identification purposes. Your DNA profile is normally sent to you within 3-5 Working Days from when the samples arrive at the laboratory. The report will include a detail of your unique 16 marker DNA profile.
