Immigration DNA tests

Complement Genomics Ltd t/a dadcheck® is accredited by the Ministry of Justice as "a body that may carry out parentage tests directed by the civil courts of England and Wales under section 20 of the Family Law Reform Act 1969".

This means our DNA tests can be used to support HMPO and UK Visas and Immigration applications.

This may include passport applications and UK Citizenship applications amongst many others.

Our team of highly skilled and qualified scientists adhere to strict laboratory requirements of internationally recognised quality standard, ISO 17025 (an accreditation for testing and calibration laboratories).

We have been assisting families with such applications for over 20 years and are able to work both UK nationwide and worldwide using our DHL Express Worldwide courier account for fast and efficient shipments overseas.

We have built a strong relationship with overseas medical centres, especially in Pakistan and South Africa which enables us to offer you a very smooth operation.  We do however work worldwide using medical centres for sampling of the family's choice.
