Universal Genetics has a nationwide network of DNA specimen collection sites. We have a large DNA specimen collection network of physicians, clinics and laboratories. We can also collect samples overseas.
These DNA collection sites are assigned to our clients by our laboratory based on the clients’ location. The DNA collection site will not receive any information from our client other than a name and telephone number. When we send a DNA kit to them, the collection site only knows that they have to collect the samples from a particular individual. They are never informed of the procedure the participant is handling with us. This way, their participation in the process is limited to focus on collecting a DNA samples which will be returned to our laboratory in a secure manner.
Also, for U.S. immigration and other legally admissible tests, if the client lives within and reasonable distance to one of our laboratories, we will ask the client to come directly to one of our offices. All DNA collection sites we use are trusted facilities that have been previously vetted and used with trained professionals to collect specimens for our clients. We are a major DNA testing laboratory that provides our services for lawyers, physicians, and hospitals throughout the United States.
