FORENSICS: Identification and Infidelity Just    as    legal    and    law    enforcement    agencies    are    looking    to    forensic    testing    to    help    solve unanswerable   questions,   private   individuals   have   the   opportunity   to   explore   forensic   DNA   testing for   answers   too.   If   you   are   looking   to   prove   a   relationship   but   are   unable   to   convince   another person   to   DNA   test   for   any   reason,   suspect   a   loved   one   of   infidelity,   or   are   looking   for   proof   of other   wrongdoing,   GenQuest   is   here   to   help.   We   provide   investigative   identity   testing   to   the general   public   at   a   reduced   cost   from   our   legal   forensic   testing.   Like   forensics,   this   testing   can   be used   to   determine   if   certain   bodily   fluids   are   present   or   to   obtain   a   profile   from   a   stain   or   an object to investigate suspicious activity.     These   investigative   tests   do   not   fall   under   the   scope   of   GenQuest’s   ANAB   accreditation   and therefore   results   cannot   be   used   in   a   court   of   law.   For   information   on   legally   admissible   forensic DNA testing available to legal and law enforcement agencies, visit our Legal Forensics  page. TYPES OF TESTS Tests offered by GenQuest for investigative purposes include: o Serological Testing for semen, blood, and saliva o Differential Lysis Extractions o Autosomal (STR) DNA Testing o Male Lineage (Y-STR) Testing SAMPLE INFORMATION Investigative   DNA   testing   usually   involves   one   or   more   nonstandard   samples.   For   information about   the   types   of   samples   that   can   be   submitted   for   identification   or   infidelity   testing,   please visit   our   Nonstandard   Samples    page.   If   you   are   trying   to   identify   a   particular   person   on   an   item, you   will   need   to   submit   a   reference   sample.   Reference   samples   are   most   often   buccal   cheek   swabs from   a   specific   identified   person.   If   you   are   unable   to   obtain   a   reference   sample   you   can   provide another   nonstandard   sample   that   you   know   the   person   has   used.   If   any   submitted   item   yields   a mixture of more than one profile, a comparison of the mixture will incur an additional fee. There   is   never   a   guarantee   that   a   nonstandard   sample   or   evidentiary   item   will   provide   a   usable profile.   If   you   have   a   potential   sample   and   are   not   sure   where   a   profile   might   be   obtained   from   it, please contact our analysts to determine whether or not it could possibly yield a profile. GenQuest   recommends   handling   any   potential   samples   with   gloves   to   avoid   contamination. Place   the   samples   in   paper   envelopes,   bags,   or   cardboard   boxes   and   ship   or   bring   to   GenQuest dry   to   avoid   DNA   degradation   and   therefore   loss   of   potential   evidence.   Placing   samples   in plastic containers is never recommended and could lead to the aforementioned degradation. If   you   know   where   you   would   like   GenQuest   to   test,   please   indicate   the   area   with   a   marker   or tape around the area or by identifying the area in writing. PRICES AND PAYMENT GenQuest   staff   work   with   private   clientele   to   ensure   the   testing   process   is   tailored   to   each   client’s needs.   Due   to   the   customized   test   process   of   each   case,   testing   prices   can   vary   widely.   GenQuest may    require    a    deposit    when    a    test    is    initiated,    and    any    remaining    balance    is    due    at    the completion of the test. Results will not be released until full payment is received. For   additional   information   about   costs   and   payment   or   to   discuss   your   situation   and   obtain   a quote, please contact GenQuest. ORDER A TEST To   begin   a   forensic   test,   please   submit   a   completed   Evidence   Submission   Form    and   your   quoted deposit   with   your   intended   sample(s).   Private   parties   are   responsible   for   the   shipment   of   samples to/from   the   laboratory.   Testing   will   take   1-3   weeks,   depending   on   the   samples   submitted   for testing. For   further   information   about   this   investigative   DNA   testing,   please   contact   GenQuest   to   discuss your situation with an analyst.
