Forensic DNA testing services
There may be cases where where it is not possible to obtain the DNA samples to perform a DNA test through the standard oral swab that is provided with our DNA testing kit. In such situations, EasyDNA Ireland offers a state of the art DNA forensic test service that is able to process different forensic DNA samples in order to obtain a usable DNA sample. The sample can be used for our standard paternity test, as well as for our other range of DNA tests.
Based on extensive experience in DNA Forensic Testing, EasyDNA is able to process a wide range of samples ranging from the more common hair and blood DNA testing, to more complex cases involving samples such as bones and age old envelopes and stamps. We recommend that you contact our expert advisors so that we can discuss your case and identify the best testing options.
A comprehensive list of forensic DNA samples is shown below. The list also includes information about packaging and sending the samples, the additional cost per sample as well as the expected DNA extraction rate. Please also review the terms and conditions for more information.
More information on forensic DNA samples:
You can obtain more information on our information site on hair dna.
Note: We can only guarantee standard result turnaround time when testing takes place solely using oral swab samples. Using a frensic sample for your test may lead to an increase in turnaround time.
Our team is at your disposal to answer any questions you may have regarding your case. In addition, we also suggest you review our frequently asked questions section for more information about our forensic DNA testing services in Ireland.

There are exemptions whereby the Human Tissue Act no longer is applied. This is when any biological tissue samples were collected before 2006, the year in which the law came into force. There other cases in which the law may not apply but these are exceptional cases; even in cases of tissue from the deceased, informed consent is still required.
