Legal DNA & Drug Testing Kits In Ireland

How accurate is DNA testing?

All results are to within 99.99% or greater. E.G if a man is confirmed as the biological father, the likelihood of paternity is reported as 99.99%. If he does not share the same genetic material as the child, the likelihood of paternity is 0%.

Are both Mother & Fathers required for a DNA test?

The test included a swab for both parents and one child, however it is up to you if you wish to have the mother tested also, but it is not required for testing.

Do I need someone’s consent to take their DNA for testing?

All participants must sign the submission form giving their consent to being tested. Children under 16 years must have a legal parent or guardian sign on their behalf.

Are GP visit costs included in your pricing?

Unfortunately, the cost for the GP visit at the time of testing is not included in our pricing, and this payment will need to be arranged separately.

Nail Testing

Nail clipping analysis from either fingernails or toenails can give an overview of drug and alcohol use covering 6-12 months (Fingernail clippings 6 months overview & Toenails 12-month overview).

Hair Testing

  • In order to gain a clear picture of how long a client has been using Alcohol or Drugs a hair sample is recommended. On average a person’s head hair grows 1cm per month. Within this timeframe a proportion of a Drugs metabolites will enter the hair folic. 
  • The hair sample collected will give an overview of drugs ingested during that time frame, For example if a 3-month window is required for analysis then a 3cm portion of hair is required. It gives us a chance to analyse the hair on a month-to-month basis to indicate which months the client has consumed drugs or alcohol. 
  • To gain a more in-depth view of drug use it is recommended that hair be segmented, and each segment analysed separately for drug or alcohol use. This gives a clearer picture of which months drugs or alcohol were ingested.
