There may be cases where where it is not possible to obtain the DNA samples to perform a DNA test through the standard oral swab that is provided with our DNA testing kit. In such situations, EasyDNA Ireland offers a state of the art DNA forensic test service that is able to process different forensic DNA samples in order to obtain a usable DNA sample. The sample can be used for our standard paternity test, as well as for our other range of DNA tests.
Based on extensive experience in DNA Forensic Testing, EasyDNA is able to process a wide range of samples ranging from the more common hair and blood DNA testing, to more complex cases involving samples such as bones and age old envelopes and stamps. We recommend that you contact our expert advisors so that we can discuss your case and identify the best testing options.
A comprehensive list of forensic DNA samples is shown below. The list also includes information about packaging and sending the samples, the additional cost per sample as well as the expected DNA extraction rate. Please also review the terms and conditions HERE for more information.
The cost of every additional forensic sample used is to be added to the standard cost of the test. Kindly always note the success rate. Whilst we do have a very strong track record of successful DNA profile extraction with such samples, we cannot guarantee that the extraction will be successful. We always suggest contacting us as we can tell you more about the chances of success once we have assessed your sample thoroughly.
