Legal DNA Test

A legal DNA test can be commissioned by the Dutch Courts, Immigration Service and other government institutions and semi-government institutions such as Youth Assistance. It may also be requested by individuals when requiring legal proof in determining kinship.

When should you consider a legal DNA test?

DNA sampling

The collection of the DNA samples for a legal DNA test can be performed at several Sanquin locations. Sanquin is responsible for the personal identification, the collection of DNA samples, DNA analysis and the final report. 


To make an appointment for a legal DNA test, please call us during office hours: 0031 20 512 3178 or 0031 20 512 3179.

NB. With the information from our DNA tests it is not possible to tell whether a person has a disease or is a carrier of a hereditary disease.
