WHY DO WE DISPLAY THE FOLLOWING SIGN?
 ******** WARNING ********
IF YOU DO NOT PURCHASE FROM US
MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE THE LAB PROCESSING YOUR TEST IS AABB ACCREDITED. 

******************************

bullet The American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) is the only national accrediting agency for relationship testing. AABB accreditation is the assurance that your DNA test is performed by qualified scientists and according to valid scientific practices.
bullet  Unaccredited laboratory results do not stand up in a court of law if challenged.  Many states have statutes which require that court admissible testing must be accomplished by an AABB accredited lab.  Please see this link for more information or discuss it with your attorney.
bullet Our Home DNA kits are tested identically as a legal chain of custody test.  The AABB does not accredit home kit tests because the sample collection is not in accordance with their sample collection standards.  In summary, the AABB requires the following for an accredited legal chain of custody test which is different from a self collected (home) test kit:
bullet All biologic samples shall be collected by persons with no interest in the outcome of the test.
bullet Photocopy of government issued identification or photograph of the tested parties.
bullet Collected samples must be sealed in a tamper proof package by the person verifying the collection.
bullet Tested participants cannot package or transfer their own sample.
bullet If you do not purchase from us, follow these tips to insure that you can count on your results:
bullet Determine that an AABB accredited lab will be running your test.  When your results are received, verify that the lab is on the AABB list.
bullet If the lab that ran your test is not accredited by the AABB then you should seriously consider having another test  run.  There are no laws dictating that a lab cannot operate from a person's garage or basement by inexperienced personnel.  You should be confident that the results are accurate.  Do not trust  the information that non accredited labs place on their website.  Most of their information is fabricated from competitor websites.
