DNA profile for legal or official purposes
The legal DNA profile requires collection by an independent third party such as a Doctor or Nurse who will document the sample collection process using our specific legal collection kit. The legal DNA profile can then be used for multiple purposes including inheritance claims and legal identification purposes. The cost of a legal DNA profile for one person is $275.
Other uses of a DNA profile
Legal firms might ask clients to provide their DNA profile so as to ensure only rightful heirs make claim to an inheritance.
DNA profiles are also useful in case cases of abductions or deaths; they can help police investigations linking important clues and pieces of evidence.
In cases of death in which bodies have decomposed beyond recognition, the DNA profile taken before death can be compared to the DNA profile extracted from the body to see if there is a match (following the attacks of 9/11 DNA profiling was used extensively to identify victims).
People in high risk jobs, such as infantry and army officers, might be encouraged to have a record of their DNA profile.
