Information and Tips on DNA Testing and Paternity Testing | EasyDNA South Africa

Look for experience & support

With so many DNA testing providers, how does one select the best one for their test? There are a number of criteria you can look at. One of these is to look at their experience in the field. At easyDNA we have over ten years experience in the industry, have handled thousands of cases to date and are one of the fastest growing international brands in DNA testingWe therefore have the necessary experience to handle your case and provide you with the answers you require.

Look for accreditation

The term “accreditation” translates into great confidence in the accuracy of the results. Accredited laboratories must demonstrate outstanding technical competence at all stages of the DNA testing process. easyDNA places accreditation at the forefront of its priorities and therefore all DNA tests are performed through an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. For more information visit our laboratory information page.

Note the accuracy

At easyDNA we test for 16 genetic markers on any DNA sample provided and whilst this is more laborious and time consuming, it nevertheless, acts as guarantee of accuracy for your results. Testing less than 16 genetic markers would mean, in for example a paternity test result, an inclusion of paternity of perhaps 90% or lower – which is not acceptable to confirm a paternity.

At easyDNA, we guarantee a 100% exclusion of paternity in the case the alleged father is not the father and and the inclusion of paternity of up to 99.999+% probability. For further insight into the accuracy of DNA testing visit the following link ISO accreditation and accuracy.
