Chain of Custody and Identification Procedures
Patients must bring valid photo identification to their appointment. Identification for children is also required and can be in the form of a health care card, birth certificate, or vaccination records. Appointments for sample collection are approximately 15 minutes in duration. Phlebotomists will obtain either a small blood sample or a noninvasive buccal swab sample. Strict chain of custody and identification procedures will be followed during the appointment. Patients will be positively identified, a Polaroid photograph is taken of the individual attending the appointment, and a right thumbprint is obtained for verification. Children under 18 years must be accompanied by their legal guardian.
All reports are fully accepted as legal proof of paternity and non-paternity in courts of law in every province and territory in Canada. Expert Ph.D testimony is available if required.
