Legal DNA Profile
Live or work in a dangerous job? A DNA Profile may help if the unthinkable happens
The Legal DNA Profile, or DNA Fingerprint, test can be used as a benchmark comparison against other DNA results you may acquire from future paternity or relationship testing.
Additionally, single profile DNA tests are important documents to keep safe if you live and work in dangerous environments or high risk areas. In the unfortunate event of an accident, your unique DNA profile may help speed up identification and get you home to your loved ones faster.
We offer both a basic DNA fingerprinting test, for peace of mind, as well as a fully legal court admissible DNA profile. Click here for more information about our Home DNA Profile kits.
If you belong to any of the following professions you may want to consider completing a single profile DNA test:
Police or Fire Service
Oil Rig workers
Off Shore Fishermen
Legal DNA tests require that everyone involved have their DNA collected by an impartial third party. This can be done at facilities such as a medical office, health clinic, or a hospital. After you place your order, a Validity Genetics representative will be in touch with you via your email or phone number to help coordinate the sample collection process near your home or office at a time convenient for you. We have access to a network of thousands of sample collection sites across the United States and Canada and are sure to have one convenient and near you.

Show up to your scheduled DNA collection time at the collection station. Make sure to bring a federally recognized government ID, such as a drivers license, passport, or military ID. In the case of a child being tested, a valid certified birth certificate copy must be brought. You may also be required to have a picture taken by the collector (or elect to bring one with you). The collector will help you fill out the paperwork, sign, and certify that the collection has taken place according to legal standards.
Step 3: Receive your Legal Paternity Results
After providing the sample at the collection site, the DNA test kit will be mailed in a secure and traceable package to our accredited home laboratory in El Paso, Texas. The professional laboratory technicians will handle your genetic samples according to the exacting standards set forth by the AABB in preparing and processing the samples. Testing will be complete within two business days, the results will be double checked and verified for 99.99% accuracy, and after being signed off by our PhD lab directors we will issue a legal document to you via your email.
