DNA Diagnostics Center for DNA Testing
Your body contains trillions of cells, each comprised of a nucleus which holds 23 pairs of chromosomes that carry your genetic information. Half of your chromosomes are inherited from one parent while the other half is inherited from your other parent, therefore, giving you two copies of every gene. Your genes provide information about what makes you unique and ultimately you! Your DNA code is comprised of unique combinations that indicate information such as your hair, skin, and eye color. When having DNA testing completed, your DNA is unraveled and read. No two people will share the exact same DNA codes except for identical twins. Whether you need a DNA test for medical screening purposes or DNA testing to prove paternity–Mednovations DNA diagnostics center can help!
Most Common DNA testing methods used at our DNA Diagnostics Center:
- Cheek swab specimen collection – One of the fastest ways to provide a DNA sample is with a painless cheek swab. During this DNA diagnostics procedure, a cotton swab (like a Q-Tip) is gently wiped against the inside of the cheek to collect cheek cells for analysis.
- Blood sample collection – a vial of blood is taken from a vein. DNA testing using blood can even be used to establish paternity of a fetus during pregnancy (i.e., before the child is born).

At some point in your life you have probably questioned, “where am I from?” In today’s society, there are a lot of people who come from mixed backgrounds and separated families.

A DNA profile is a genetic map or imprint of who you are. It is done by a unique testing method called STR analysis that uses a small sample of skin, nails, or hair to create a print of your unique DNA pattern. A person’s complete genetic profile generates an enormous amount of data. To ensure you have access to your genetic profile once it is created, you may choose to bank or store your DNA data for up to 15 years.
