Lab Collections vs. At-Home DNA Testing
With the proliferation of at-home DNA testing kits, many individuals may think they don’t need lab-based services. While it’s true that these cheap kits may provide instant results, the questionable accuracy of results, lack of legal admissibility, and hidden fees associated with the kits invalidate any initial cost savings. Many DNA testing kits for personal use tack a shipping fee onto their over-the-counter price. What’s more, since you are charged with your own collections — and thus do not follow chain of custody collection procedures — the results of at-home DNA testing cannot be used in legal proceedings. ARCpoint Labs of Southern Maryland provides results that are always court admissible, always accurate, and always confidential. We strive to provide quick, convenient service while adhering to all requirements regarding chain of custody collection procedures.
