Cellmark is the UK's most experienced DNA testing service. In 2012 we celebrated our 25th anniversary of providing DNA testing services to UK customers.
Cellmark is the most experienced DNA testing company in the UK - we have been providing a confidential, conclusive & court approved DNA testing service for almost three decades. There are many different companies providing paternity testing services particularly on the Internet, many of which offer a variety of tests, prices and sampling methods.
Every year new DNA testing company names appear and a number of these services are operated from overseas and indeed samples are sent abroad for analysis from organisations acting as brokers or middlemen in the UK.
You should also ensure that you choose a company that you can deal directly with, who are based and carry out your test in the UK and who are available for you to talk to and give you advice throughout the process.
Given the importance of the decision to go ahead with a paternity test, it is vital that you choose a well established reputable company to carry out your testing, to ensure that the results are reliable and the whole process is as easy as possible for you and to ensure that the results can be used in court!
You will see prices being advertised as low as £89 - but you should be aware that there are variations in the accuracy of results depending on how the test is done and what type of testing methods are used and how many individual DNA tests are used by the testing laboratory to analyse each paternity case.
You should look for your paternity tester to be fully accredited, regulated and experienced in providing highly conclusive results quickly and effectively.
