Chain-of-custody witness instructions

A legal DNA test is not difficult to perform. A Bio-Gene DNA Legal DNA Kit allows the option of having each person whose DNA needs to be collected schedule a time that is easiest for them. It is not necessary for each person to test at the same time, and people in different locations can have a legal DNA test done, as long as all instructions are followed. We know that work schedules and life activities do not stop because a legal DNA test is needed. The entire process is described below.

-The sample collection process must be witnessed by an unrelated witness (such as your physician, your lawyer, a notary, clergy, etc.).
-The witness must verify the identity of those whom are testing by confirming legal identification (e.g. driver’s license, birth certificate, Social Security card, passport, etc.).
-The witness must sign the completed chain-of-custody witness document provided in the kit as a witness to the collection.
-The witness must seal the DNA specimens in the container provided in the kit, sign the security seal, and mail the samples directly to the laboratory for testing. We provide prepaid return mailers on all legal testing.
