Universal Forensics Introduces Industry First 24 Marker DNA Paternity Test for Legal Use

Share Article

To date, the industry standard for legal DNA paternity testing has been 16 markers. The improvement in markers by Universal forensics to 24 is a 50% increase over the industry standard and its competitors.

"24 marker DNA legal testing for paternity offers the highest degree of statistical accuracy currently available"

When greater accuracy and reliability with certainty and assuredness of DNA test results is required...more markers is the answer.

On November 1, 2014 Universal Forensics Corporation (UFC Lab), a DNA testing laboratory specializing in family relationship testing, is making available through its network of exclusive distributors and laboratory partners an enhanced 24 marker DNA paternity test for both legal and non-legal test cases. President / CEO, Julie Cramer, said, "We are pleased to offer this significantly enhanced legal paternity testing to our distributor lab partners. The overall improved accuracy and reliability will provide the highest degree of certainty and confidence of test results available in our industry and represents a measurable competitive advantage for our distributors."

Forensic DNA testing for paternity and other family relationships has captured public awareness and acceptance thanks, in part, to television shows such as CSI and Maury Povich. The real world of forensic DNA testing is a lot less glamorous but certainly just as intriguing. In most cases, people are seeking answers to relationship questions that only DNA testing can provide. Zach Gaskin, Universal's Chief Scientific Officer, commented, "UFC Lab has dedicated resources in order to provide our clients with the most accurate and statistically reliable DNA test results available within our industry. Our new 24 marker enhancement is just one example of our commitment to excellence and our customer first philosophy."

In addition to DNA paternity and relationship testing, Universal Forensics also specialize in immigration testing, working with and through the US Office of Immigration Services, foreign embassies and their distributor lab partners around the world to provide the necessary legal chain of custody protocols. Court approved DNA testing requires strict guidelines such as using trained and certified collectors, unbroken document trail of evidence samples, legally acceptable photo identification and the preferred use of an AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) accredited laboratory for test sample processing.

Universal Forensics Corporation is an accredited AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) laboratory headquartered in Somerset, Pennsylvania. For more information visit our website or contact services(at)ufclab(dot)com.
