TESTIMONIALSUniversal Genetics helped me to reunite with my family quickly. If I didn't get the results so fast, I wouldn’t be able to celebrate the New Year with my family right here in San Jose. They were very responsive and professional! Learn More

DNA Typing and Banking

Our DNA typing and banking services provide individuals with their DNA profile and preserve their DNA specimen for future genetic testing when needed. Each individual’s DNA profile (or genetic fingerprint) is a permanent means of identification. The DNA profile demonstrates each person’s biological ties to his/her family as well as his/her genetic uniqueness. Our genetic material also contains information about health and heritage. As the DNA technology advances every day, the preserved DNA specimen holds great potential to solve many mysteries about ourselves.

Universal Genetics’ DNA typing service tests the 16 DNA markers established by the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System for human identification. These same markers are also used in paternity, maternity, and other kinship testing.

The DNA profile can be used as a reference record when the identification of an individual is needed. In recent years, different organizations in high-risk professions such as law enforcement and military are using this service for their personnel as one of their identification records. It can also be used to identify missing persons or in a family relationship test when a person is deceased or unavailable for testing.

Universal Genetics provides DNA banking service to store DNA in a medically secure facility that maintains the viability of DNA for future testing. The preserved DNA can be used for genetic disease diagnosis, ancestral lineage or paternity testing to solve legal issues such as inheritance claims when the tested party is no longer available for testing.

We follow strict chain-of-custody procedures to generate the DNA profile so that our clients can use the profile as a piece of legal evidence when needed. The stored DNA specimen is also collected following chain-of-custody procedures so that any future test performed on the specimen produces legally admissible results. Our DNA banking service provides 10 years’ secure storage of your DNA and can be renewed if desired.
