DNA testing has developed into the gold standard of forensic evidence since it was first used in 1986. DNA is used to eliminate or link a suspect to a crime in criminal court because no two people share the same DNA. Today, the world of DNA testing goes beyond criminal investigation and is used to discover other parts of our lives. IGNIS Forensics, LLC performs DNA testing for a wide variety of uses. We partner with the most cutting-edge DNA laboratory available that is certified to ISO and AABB standards. We are the most trusted and accessible source for DNA testing in Colorado Springs.
Paternity tests are used to determine whether a man is the biological father of a child. Paternity DNA tests are highly accurate. They use DNA sequencing, or a series of tests that look for genetic matches between a child and a potential father, to prove paternity. Paternity tests are legally used to determine custody, child support, social security benefits, and inheritance.
Genetic testing identifies changes in proteins, genes, and chromosomes. This is a vital tool for health by confirming suspected genetic conditions or determining a person’s chance of developing genetic disorders. There are 77,000 genetic tests available; it is vital to talk to a doctor or genetic counselor to determine which genetic testing is best for you.
