Alliance 2020’s Renton Service Center recently expanded its services to include a variety of DNA testing options. This new service works in partnership with LabCorp and focuses predominantly on paternity testing. Whether for legal purposes or personal, we provide highly accurate results and ensure you have the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your paternity test needs.
About Our New Services
“We’re excited to announce the launch of our DNA testing services,” said Dylan Henderson, Business Development Manager. “We believe that DNA testing complements our existing service line well.”
While our drug testing services mainly center around urine and hair follicle options, the specimen used for DNA collection is a buccal swab (inside the cheek). The process takes about 15 minutes per person and can be scheduled on an individual basis, or as a trio with the child, mother, and father. However, the paternity testing can test for individuals or multiple fathers and children at once, along with the mother. Results are highly accurate, including 99.99% accuracy of non-fathers.
A noteworthy aspect of the options is that a legal chain of custody documentation can be chosen for a small additional price. A chain of custody offers accuracy and reliability of test results, offering legitimacy of the samples taken. These results can be used as evidence and documentation for legal purposes. This includes cases of child custody, child support, and inheritance matters.
DNA or paternity testing may be in high demand considering the large marketable population of the Greater Seattle area. Henderson continues, explaining that, “Our location in the heart of downtown Renton will offer convenience to South King County residents needing the service.” We provide results quickly, taking 1 – 2 weeks for tests requesting a legal chain of custody, or as soon as 3 – 5 business days for non-legal tests.
Background on DNA Testing
At-home DNA test kits grew increasingly popular in recent years; however, this method depends on multiple variables which can compromise its accuracy. Tests offered by a professional service through a reliable laboratory ensures a trained individual to accurately document and perform the process. This is especially important when you require a legal chain of custody with the results.
Understanding the requirements of a professionally offered service, Alliance 2020 partners with LabCorp, an accredited and reliable testing laboratory corporation. LabCorp is one of the top companies in the direct-access genetic testing market. Additionally, for paternity testing, there is no difference in the DNA when collecting the specimen via blood or saliva. For this purpose, we provide the more comfortable option for many by using the buccal swab method.
Our Renton office originally offered services for ink fingerprinting, digital fingerprinting, drug test collections, passport photos, notary services, and employee ID card printing. The addition of DNA testing cultivates a wider variety of services to this geographically convenient location.
