DNA screening is often requested for judicial, legal, medical, forensic, and business matters. You can have confidence that our lab technicians are properly certified and all of our test results can be court-admissible. At home DNA testing, although convenient, cannot be used in legal proceedings. Palmetto Testing provides DNA testing for the following legal matters:

  • Adding/removing father’s name from a birth certificate
  • Child support claims
  • Child custody hearings
  • Estate matters (inheritance rights)
  • Infidelity cases (divorce proceedings)
  • Life insurance claims
  • Individuals seeking social security or military benefits
  • Immigration
  • Ancestry
  • Paternity
  • Grandparentage
  • Avuncular
  • Siblingship
  • Unknown substances (Toothbrush, Razor, Wood Chips, etc.)


Palmetto Testing is routinely contacted to perform non-standard DNA testing for business & individual requests:

  • We perform onsite testing at funeral homes to confirm the deceased father's children are the biological offspring for inheritance purposes.
  • We can extract DNA samples from razor blades, toothbrushes, toothpicks, straws, gum, teeth, bone and even stained wood chips to either determine genetic profiles or relational confirmation.
  • Our 24 marker court-admissible, 2-day turnaround relational DNA test is groundbreaking in genetic testing.
  • We have confirmed paternity even in the absence of the alleged father through unique siblingship testing parameters.
  • We respond to onsite testing at: Hospitals, NICU Units, Homeland Security and Prison facilities for court-admissible testing services.
  • We can also perform relational testing nationwide. When one or both parties are in other States, we can collect DNA samples in other States and bring them together at the lab in order to process the DNA comparison and provide court-admissible results.
