Vanguard Health & Safety Services Inc. partners with DNA Diagnostic Center, a laboratory accredited by AABB to conduct legal, chain-of-custody DNA testing. Our staff is trained to collect a buccal smear from inside the donor’s cheek. Buccal swabs are a relatively non-invasive way to collect DNA samples for testing and provide results typically within 2-3 business days from receipt of all samples by the lab. Results are confidential.
Vanguard performs DNA testing using a strict chain-of-custody which verifies the origin of specimens collected. Results are signed by medical review officer, notarized and are defensible in court.
Specimens are collected locally at our office located at 518 S 11th St, Lovington. If all donors do not reside locally, nationwide remote specimen collection is available.
