Why Choose Canadian Forensics?

Difference between a Home DNA Test and a Legal DNA Test


A home paternity DNA test is carried out in situations where paternity DNA test results are used for peace of mind (information purposes only). The DNA samples for home paternity DNA test can be collected by the test parties themselves from the comfort of their home using our DNA collection kit. Canadian Forensics Inc can ship the collection kit to different locations discretely to all the test participants for privacy purposes. After collecting the samples, simply return them to Canadian Forensics for analysis. The laboratory procedures and the accuracy of the DNA test results are the same for legal as well as peace of mind DNA tests. Test results are emailed to all the test participants within 7-10 working days.


A legal paternity DNA test is no different than a home paternity test as far as the accuracy and DNA testing procedure is concerned. The only difference lies in the sample collection and chain-of-custody procedure.  Legal DNA Paternity Tests require the participant’s samples to be collected at one of our collection facilities or through a mobile collection by one of our forensic DNA professionals. The participant’s identity must be verified with a government issued ID and a photograph is taken. A strict chain of custody for samples is maintained from sampling, packaging and sending them off to the laboratory. Results of a legal test are issued by email and also by hard copy.

Science Behind Paternity DNA Test

In addition to its use in criminal investigations, DNA technology can be used in paternity DNA testing to determine parentage and kinship of individuals. The most common question asked in parentage and kinship testing is – Who is the father?

Paternity DNA testing is based on the scientific fact that a child inherits its genetic makeup from biological parents (half from the mother and half from the father) and is unique to every individual with the only exception of twins. A paternity DNA test is commonly used to determine the biological father of a child. A standard paternity DNA test works by comparing the DNA profile of a child with that of an alleged father. This test can determine whether the child has inherited genetic material from the alleged father or not. As of yet, DNA testing has proved to be the most advanced and robust technology to establish paternity of a child.

Canadian Forensics Inc is owned and operated by forensic scientists and offers two types of paternity DNA testing in Toronto Canada:

Frequently Asked Questions – Paternity DNA Test

A paternity DNA Test answers the most frequently asked question – who is the father? A child inherits half of his/her genetic make-up from mother and the other half from its father. By comparing the child’s DNA profile with that of the alleged father we can determine whether or not the person is the biological father of the child.

From a scientific point of view a home paternity DNA test is no different than a legal paternity DNA test. For legal paternity DNA test strict chain of custody documentation is maintained to ensure the court admissibility of the tests for paternity disputes child, custody and  child support. The tests of a home paternity test on the other hand have no legal validity are mainly used for peace of mind or just for reassurance.

Canadian Forensics offers DNA testing services at a very competitive price. A standard paternity DNA test costs $249.00 for two tested person (child and alleged father).

Here’s what our happy customers had to say about our services:

We recently used Canadian Forensics to do some employee criminal records checks. They were very prompt and even offered to email the results so we didn’t have to wait in the office. Results came via email within a couple hours. This is a much faster process than having to go to a police station. We will definitely be using them again!
