We accept

We have selected to use 16 alleles from the Identifiler" kit.  The 16 alleles in this kit exceed the requirements of several standardization bodies throughout world including the FBI, INTERPOL (the European police network) and the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI).  Thirteen out of the 16 alleles are approved by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and are the alleles that are currently being used in their DNA typing database called Combined DNA Index System (1) (CODIS). Four of the alleles have been standardized by INTERPOL (the European police network) and seven of the 16 alleles have been chosen by European Network of Forensic Science Institutes.  These 16 alleles satisfy the needs of several major standardization bodies allowing DNA testing easy to be accomplish for both US and European clients.

Reporting Results:
We understand the high level of anxiety associated with paternity testing and in order to expedite the results we have several options available for you to receive your results as soon as the test is complete.  We will always mail you a hard copy of the results to keep for your records (unless instructed otherwise) but in order to give you the results quicker the results can given over the phone/cell phone, e-mail or faxed.  Lastly, we can safely give your results over the telephone if you properly identify yourself by answering case-sensitive questions and giving us your password. (For confidentiality purposes, we will not acknowledge that your case exists until you answer these questions).  We can be reached by telephone at 541-688-4988 or via e-mail at
Our client service telephone hours are 7:00 am to 9:00 pm PST daily (3:00 pm to 5:00 am BST).

FTA Card

The FTA card will gradually turn white as DNA is correctly applied to the card.  It is not necessary to completely fill the circle.

DNA Collection kits:
Genetic Identity’s collection kits include foam tipped swabs and a FTA card.  The foam tipped swabs are used to acquire
buccal cells (cheek cells) from the inside of the mouth. The buccal cells are then transferred onto the FTA card.  The FTA card is pink and will turn white when you have correctly transferred the DNA. Once the DNA is on the FTA card it will be stable at room temperature for years.  Therefore, shipping overseas is not a problem. Download the personal paternity brochure to see a detailed description of the process.

The FTA-treated matrix has the unique ability to kill blood-borne pathogens and protect genomic DNA from microbial and environmental degradation, allowing for long-term storage at room temperature. The FTA-treated card offers the safest and most cost-effective method available for the transport of DNA specimens.  This unique system is the only one of its kind that has been formally approved by the US. Postal Service. 

While the vast majority of online transactions are completed without complication, fraud and dishonest sellers are a fact of Internet life.  Genetic Identity suggests that you check a company’s reputation before you order online.
