State-of-the-Art Technology

Genex's DNA testing facility is equipped with the most advanced technology and equipment available, allowing the laboratory to automate and streamline many of the procedures of paternity testing. Genex is one of the few paternity laboratories in North America that is equipped with multiple dedicated ABI 310 and ABI3100 sequencers. The ABI 310 and ABI3100 sequencers are fully automated and use a capillary laser detection system. The relevance of this system is that it drastically reduces the time required to perform a DNA paternity test while greatly improving accuracy. Patients benefit directly from Genex's superior technology by receiving more accurate tests at lower prices and a much faster turnaround time.
