Our DNA Test Sampling Kit helps you collect and store samples containing DNA so they can be used if you ever need them. For added security, the DNA Identification and Preservation Program enables you to send a sample to our laboratory. There DNA scientists will verify that the sample contains enough DNA for future testing and place the extracted DNA on a special card that you can store for future purposes.

Peace of Mind also offers a DNA Test Identification service that determines the DNA identification profile on a submitted specimen. It is being used by US contractors with personnel being deployed to Iraq or other risky foreign assignments to ensure that rapid identification can be more easily done in the future if needed. For more information, or to schedule a test, please call Peace of Mind Paternity at 1-866-51-PEACE (73223).

Estate Planning

DNA Identity Testing can be extremely useful in helping to settle estates and resolve probate disputes. When you suspect that you are related to an individual for whom an estate is being settled, DNA Testing can validate your claim. There is a high likelihood that genetic testing will establish whether you are a child of a deceased individual, or a sibling of his or her other living children. In addition, to protect an estate from false claims by supposed relatives, Peace of Mind Paternity can assist with DNA identification and preservation for future testing. Also, in many cases, genetic testing in estate matters may be possible even if the deceased did not bank a biological specimen. Many estate executors have successfully eliminated impostors and validated legitimate heirs by using Peace of Mind Paternity’s DNA Test services. The type of DNA Test performed will vary, depending on your relationship to the person whose estate is being settled, and on the other individuals available for testing. For more information, or to schedule a test, please call Peace of Mind Paternity at 1-866-51-PEACE (73223).
