The scientists at Genex have encountered and successfully processed nearly every possible scenario. Such cases include but are not limited to: regular paternity, regular maternity, motherless paternity, fatherless maternity, alleged fathers who are brothers or father and son, reconstruction of paternal identity, grandparentage, avuncular testing, sibship, twin zygosity, paternity testing from cases involving incest, from histological slides from deceased individuals, from DNA banked with our laboratory for estate claims, from blood or buccal cells, from amniocentesis before birth, from chorionic villus samples before birth, for urgent request where samples are required in under 24 hours and many other scenarios. Nearly all of these cases are used as legal evidence, some of these cases involve high profile figures, international cases, alleged fathers with restraining order, in prison, or where one of the individuals is located in a rural district or is handicapped or otherwise unable to physically attend an appointment.

Genex Diagnostics's commitment to the latest technology and to patient education and service has allowed each of the aforementioned tests to be conducted without any issue. Genex has maintained an unblemished record with no legal challenges to our reports whatsoever. The technology offered by Genex guarantees a CPI (combined Paternity Index) greater than 10,000. All paternity inclusions are reported as greater than 99.99% and all paternity exclusions are reported as 0% probability of paternity. With over 60,000 thousand tests conducted to date, Genex has maintained an unblemished record with no legal challenges to our reports whatsoever.

Experience with Reconfirmation Screens

Because of our advanced technology, Genex is often asked to reconfirm cases which were previously conducted by other smaller laboratories which use older and less sensitive techniques. One major drawback of older technologies used by smaller labs is that it is often not powerful enough to exclude an alleged father who is not the true biological father of a child. The older technologies often provided CPI's under 50. The technology offered by Genex guarantees a CPI (combined Paternity Index) greater than 10,000. All paternity inclusions are reported as greater than 99.99% and all paternity exclusions are reported 0% probability of paternity. Using the latest technology, Genex has on a number of occasions excluded alleged father that previously were not excluded by smaller laboratories who had conducted the test using older technology.
