Beware of £99 DNA Tests
Be wary of companies that offer £99 DNA tests. These companies offer services that are too good to be true. To be a savvy DNA test customer, be watchful for the following price-cutting tactics by £99 DNA testing companies.
Look for hidden fees when reviewing DNA testing companies. Some companies appear inexpensive until they reveal that the price they quote you does not include sample collection, post expenses, or other related costs. Be extra cautious of companies that charge for additional collection kits if they inform you that an initial collection kit failed to collect sufficient DNA samples.
DNA Diagnostics Centre outlines all costs upfront to its clients.
We don't charge clients for extra kits needed by our clients.
Lack of Experience
Companies that offer inexpensive DNA tests often cannot afford to employ highly trained and experienced laboratory staff.
In fact, some of these staffs include university students with little laboratory experience.
DNA Diagnostics Centre is one of the most experienced DNA testing companies in the world.
Our laboratory staff have more than 150 years of combined experience in genetics and biotechnology.
Paternity Testing as a Side Business
Some large genetic and biological testing companies offer paternity tests as a side business. As a side business, their paternity services may not receive the time or financing to produce high quality tests to clients.
Because the of this, these lab may not adhere to the strictest quality control measures that companies that specialise in paternity testing do.
DNA Diagnostics Centre solely performs paternity testing and human identification services.
"Legal" DNA Testing
Legal paperwork that accompanies DNA tests typically includes verification of the collected parties and the maintenance of the DNA samples through notarised documentation. This sample and documentation control requires strict testing procedures and knowledgeable laboratory personnel to provide the service.
These qualifications cost time and money, so it is unlikely that an inexpensive testing company can provide its clients with DNA test results that are legally defensible.
Legal paternity tests through DNA Diagnostics Centre are performed through strict chain of custody testing procedures, ensuring the
legal defensibility of the test results.
To save money, some laboratories do not maintain a physical address that is open to clients. Their post is delivered to a
post office box or a box located in a mailing shop. Some do not even take post but instead operate only on the Internet and
send the samples to another laboratory for testing.
DNA Diagnostics Centre's office is located on Hammersmith Grove in London.
Minimal or No Customer Service
Another cost-cutting measure for labs offering inexpensive DNA tests is a lack of customer service. To reduce overhead, these companies will minimise or eliminate customer service representatives, which maximises their profit from inexpensive tests. This means that
if clients have questions about their paternity DNA test, they will have great difficulty contacting the company or talking with a trained customer service representative.
DNA Diagnostics Centre offers unbeatable customer service from highly trained and knowledgeable representatives.
