DNA Testing Services

AngelScope offers DNA Testing for Paternity, Immigration, Forensic, Genetic Reconstruction, DNA siblings test, DNA Grandparentage testing and many more. All DNA samples will go through a Dual Process which eliminates common laboratory mistakes and assures clients of accurate, reliable results which means all DNA samples are divided into two for independent testing by separate technical teams. They carefully record each step to ensure the samples are properly identified and tracked throughout. At the end of the process, one of our laboratory directors looks at the raw and analysed data to check that the results match. We also offer counselling by our qualified nurse who has experience working with families and children. Contact us on: 020 7498 0102 For Price schedule please see here »

  DNA Paternity Test: Peace of Mind Testing . . .
A DNA Paternity Test determines whether a tested man is the biological father of a tested child. A Paternity Test works by comparing a child’s DNA profile with that of an alleged father and often the mother as well. Because a child inherits half of his or her DNA from each biological parent, such a comparison reveals whether the child could have inherited DNA from the alleged father.
When individuals are biologically related as parent and child, their DNA profiles show predictable patterns of genetic inheritance. Our peace of mind testing, also called private or in-home paternity testing, is characterised by the self-collection process.

DNA Testing Services

We send a sample collection kit to the parties to be tested, and they perform their own very simple to perform buccal swabbing to collect the DNA samples. Because of this collection method, private paternity testing produces results that are not legally defensible as they have not followed the full chain of custody procedure and checks with identity which are required by law.
Included in this kit are consent forms which must be signed and sent with the samples and with your one-off complete payment. You will receive results by email with a certificate between 3-5 days after sample has been sent back to the Laboratory.

This home paternity DNA self test includes DNA home test kit, full confirmation, addressed envelope and certificates. Please contact us with full details of those parties being tested on: 020 7498 0102.

  About DNA Paternity Tests . . .
The decision to have a paternity test should not be taken lightly and we understand that the tests we carry out provide you with information which can have negative or positive implications. It is very important that you fully understand the implications of results that we can produce.
Although we are totally dedicated to our clients and very much care for your welfare, we are unable to assist you in making the right decision. As a testing company which adheres to the Department of Health’s voluntary code of practice for paternity testers in the UK we must remain impartial to situations which surround a test (Impartiality Obligation) and our mission is to focus on the science to ensure that our quality standards and levels of service are first class. We urge you to consider all the parties involved and to decide whether this is the best course of action, particularly for the child in question.

We recommend that you discuss the issues and possible outcomes with a third party, either a friend, a family member or an independent advice service. The following free agencies in the UK may be of some help - we have provided you with some useful links where free advice is easily obtained:
