How to do a secret DNA test

How to do a secret DNA test

Is it possible to do a secret DNA test? It is with AlphaBiolabs. We have put three steps in place to ensure this.

1. Discreet and confidential DNA testing service

We understand that DNA relationship testing can be an emotional time. You may not want close family or friends to know that you are undertaking such tests. We therefore take various steps to help minimize any chance of the company name being recognized in any correspondence.

All of our DNA testing kits and letters are sent out in discreet plain packaging without company logos or branding. In addition, online payment transactions do not name AlphaBiolabs as the recipient on bank statements.

In addition, you can rest assured that our DNA testing is 100% confidential and data security is paramount.

2. Secret DNA sampling

To collect a DNA sample for one of our Peace of Mind home DNA tests, a mouth swab (like a large Q-tip) needs to be rubbed on the inside of a donor’s cheek. For paternity tests, a sample is needed from the possible father, the child, and the mother if available. The DNA collection process is very easy and is not invasive; however, it could lead to awkward questions from older children. For this reason, AlphaBiolabs has launched its toothbrush DNA test and nail DNA tests. Sending in a child’s regular used toothbrush or collected nail clippings allows for more discreet DNA sampling. What could be easier?

Our in-house scientists will initially perform a viability study and if they can extract a DNA profile from the toothbrush or nail clippings sample, a standard DNA relationship test can be performed, which examines up to 42 DNA markers.

Consent is needed for anyone taking part in a DNA test. However, an adult with parental responsibility can provide consent for children under 16 years of age.

3. Secret DNA test passwords

A password is picked by the person who instructs the DNA test. We only discuss details of the testing with those who know the correct passwords or the answer to unique security questions. The DNA test report is sent as a pdf file that requires the password to open it. This prevents the report from being opened by anyone else. In addition, all of our DNA samples are destroyed after 3 months and all identification paperwork (hard copy and electronic files) are destroyed after 12 months.
