Your samples will be
tested in-house in our specially equipped laboratory. The
tests are conducted by highly experienced molecular biologists
with the most modern equipment. Internal crosschecks and
ongoing safety controls ensure that mix ups of samples and
mistakes are not going to happen.
Our analysis compares
specific characteristic DNA regions of the persons that are
being tested. These characteristics create a pattern that is
unique for every person. We compare at least 16 of these
characteristics to achieve a very high probability with our
test. As far as paternity tests are concerned the probability
is at least 99.99% (and can be augmented up to 99,999999% if
necessary); if the test has to show that a man is not the
father the probability is 100%.
Your test result will
show all analysis details and the probability of paternity.
Your data will be presented in a detailed but
Many paternity tests are offered by vendors
that do not have their own laboratory or even have the
necessary training and qualifications. Unfortunately most of
their customers have no way of knowing which laboratory
conducts their test.
There are several
“cheap” offers around. Those tests are often done in
laboratories outside of Austria. Some of these companies have old equipment
and use outdated methods. Therefore the results are unreliable
and would not pass any Austrian quality control standard. It is
imperative that you make sure that your chosen laboratory is
in fact in Austria and does the analysis in their
company-owned facility. Austrian laboratories are leading in
quality control, qualification of employees and reliability.
DelphiTest not only
owns their own facility, we also allow our
clients to see our lab at any time.
Our analysis quality is externally tested by GEDNAP twice a year.
