Biological Relationship Test for Immigration
Have a Biological Relationship DNA Test conducted and receive an Internationally Certified Expert Report
The DNAlogy laboratories, actively contributing to the resolution of the immigration crisis that has arisen over the last years and in pronounced in our country, provide services of DNA analysis to prove biological relationship among family members that live in different countries and wish to be reunited. The DNAlogy laboratories are accredited by the National Accreditation System as per the ELOT EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard to conduct DNA analyses to establish relationship and are included in the list of laboratories suggested by the Ministry of Immigration Policy for DNA analysis for immigration purposes.
Understanding the difficulties faced by this vulnerable population and wanting to make this long journey easier as immigrants return to their families, DNAlogy cooperates with many NGOs, which take up cases of family reunification, in particular with organisations that help unattended underage children be reunited with members of their family living in another country.
To conduct these tests (sample collection, analysis, reporting) specific procedures are followed to ensure integrity of samples in each step, while at the same time they are simplified so that persons involved can take part easily, fast and with absolute safety. Results are reported in 5 working days from sample receipt, in Greek, English or French.
More specifically, DNAlogy has developed an innovative protocol of remote collection of biological material (buccal swab) without requiring movement of the participants, this ensuring that all procedures performed are controlled and sample integrity is not compromised. The samples reach our laboratories with safety and after the necessary controls, their analysis starts.
As cases of family reunification include all degrees of relationship, the laboratories of DNAlogy are equipped with the necessary tools to solve even the most difficult case, by analysing 17-41 autosomal genetic markers (STRs) but also the Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA to establish common paternal and maternal lineage, respectively.
