Is the paternity testing result admissible in a court of law?
Yes. The Laboratory has been certified by the Health Care Financing Administration, Department of Health and Human Services (CLIA ID# 01D0641774), The College of American Pathologists (CAP# 42094-01), and Alabama State Board of Health (Lic#3060). All of the testing is performed in accordance with the standards set forth by the Parentage Committee of the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB). The testing procedure has detailed records for the “Chain of Custody”. The Chain of Custody refers to the various “hands” that the individual sample passes through. That is why the samples have to be collected in the presence of a neutral third party at a lab or hospital facility, and the individual has to be photographed in order to verify the identity. The test results from a legal chain of custody will be admissible in a court of law.
