LGC : 02 September, 2004  (Company News)
LGC's new website provides accurate, jargon-free information about paternity and relationship testing. LGC is Europe's leading independent analytical laboratory providing advanced chemical, biochemical and forensic analysis, diagnostic services and DNA testing, and has been an accredited provider of paternity testing for the past 15 years.
The updated website provides the key information required by anyone interested in understanding more about DNA profiling paternity and relationship testing, as well as how the testing process is carried out at LGC. By clicking on the homepage ┤paternity testing button┤, users can access easy-to-understand, online answers from an experienced and approved laboratory.

This new easy-to-use website will act as an important source of reliable, comprehensive information on paternity and relationship testing and provides a completely confidential contact point for people who prefer to carry out their initial enquiries online. For those people who would like to speak directly, also in complete confidence - to our friendly and helpful client services advisors for advice and assistance, the relevant contact details are given on the website. Using the most accurate test available, LGC has provided its DNA profiling services to many thousands of people, in the UK and abroad, who have been faced with either the uncertainty over paternity or the requirement to prove family relationships.

Linda Layden, Head of LGC's Diagnostics Department, said: 'LGC is one of the UK's largest independent laboratories for DNA testing. We adhere to the UK Department of Health's 'Voluntary Code of Practice and Guidance on Genetic Paternity Testing Services'. Fully qualified scientific staff in our purpose-built laboratories in the UK test all samples sent for analysis. We are registered paternity testers with the Department for Constitutional Affairs (formerly the Lord Chancellor's Department) and the results of our paternity testing are admissible as evidence in UK Courts of Law.'

DNA profiling techniques offer the most conclusive method of determining family relationships. LGC offers DNA profiling paternity testing services to help with evidence in cases of disputed paternity, identification of a person's true father or mother or siblings, and confirmation of family relationships in immigration matters. The website has introduced a comprehensive FAQ section, deals with paternity and immigration issues separately to ensure clarity, and also provides information on how to arrange a DNA profiling paternity test and gives a link to current prices for paternity testing.
