Cellmark’s Global Sampler Network Ensures Rapid DNA Results in Immigration Cases

Global Sampler Network

Cellmark has provided government approved DNA relationship testing to support immigration applications since 1987. Our service is quick and reliable and our results are accepted by UK Visas and Immigration.

‘Samplers in over 50 countries’ 

Relationship DNA testing for immigration applications frequently requires DNA samples to be taken from individuals overseas. With over 35 years’ experience of arranging overseas sampling we have established a network of samplers in over 50 countries around the world. This means that we can quickly arrange an appointment with an overseas sampler, many of whom hold a stock of our sampling kits.

If a sampler doesn’t have a stock of our kits they will be immediately despatched by international courier to avoid any delays. And, if you require sampling in a country not currently included in our network, our customer services team is very experienced at quickly tracking down a qualified sampler to take your sample.

Once the overseas DNA samples have been taken, we courier them back to Cellmark’s UK laboratory where all samples that arrive before 10am in complete cases start their processing on the same day. This is so that we can send you your report the next working day, as standard.

You can rely on Cellmark to make the whole process simple and straightforward, from organising sampling in the UK and overseas, to rapidly and reliably analysing and reporting your DNA results.
