DNA Diagnostics Center is the premier laboratory for AABB immigration DNA testing in the United States.

EDC provides full service from the first phone call, fast results, DNA collection coordination, with over 20 years of immigration testing experience.

The USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) recommends DNA testing to prove biological relationships for many who have submitted form I-130 (or others). Immigration DNA testing has proven to help expedite the immigration application approval process.

With a phone call and a partial payment, our Immigration Case Managers go to work for you, quickly coordinating DNA collection at the foreign embassy of the tested family member. No lab has more experience with Immigration DNA testing than EDC—with over 3,500 collection locations in all 50 states and 165 countries.

When should I use an immigration test?

Immigration DNA testing is a paternity, maternity or kinship test that is conducted at the request of the U.S. Embassy, Department of Homeland Security, or United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

When you need to legally authenticate your family to aid them in obtaining a visa and eventually citizenship. The results will be submitted to the immigration authorities. It is very important that you choose a laboratory, such as LabCorp, that is accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB). All parts of the immigration testing process, including scheduling the appointment, should be managed by the AABB accredited laboratory and not a third party.

EDC is an AABB-Accredited DNA testing laboratory. Our results are accepted for immigration testing purposes.

Getting Started?

EDC makes the DNA testing portion of the immigration process simple for our clients. Our specialized Immigration Team has worked with immigration agencies, embassies, petitioners, and beneficiaries around the world for more than two decades.

AABB Requirements:

– EDC schedules the petitioner appointment in the U.S.; collect petitioner’s DNA sample

– EDC ships a DNA collection kit to the U.S. Embassy / USCIS office in home country

– U.S. Embassy / USCIS office collects the beneficiary’s DNA sample; ships the samples back to EDC

– Once testing is complete, EDC ships the DNA testing results directly to the requesting Immigration office

Three Initial Steps:

– You receive paperwork from USCIS or other agency that requests DNA evidence of relationship between the petitioner and beneficiary

– EDC ships a DNA collection kit to the U.S. Embassy / USCIS office in home country

– U.S. Embassy / USCIS office collects the beneficiary’s DNA sample; ships the samples back to EDC

We then send the beneficiary’s information and a DNA sample collection kit to the appropriate U.S. embassy or panel physician in the foreign country. The embassy or panel physician will arrange the beneficiary’s sample collection appointment in the foreign country (this may take some time). For the petitioner within the United States, EDC will arrange sample collection at one of our many convenient locations.

Next, the sample collection sites return the samples to EDC. Upon receiving all the needed samples, we will complete the DNA test within 2-9 working days, depending on the type of test performed.

We will send the legally defensible (chain of custody) test results and a clear explanation of the results to the proper immigration authorities and the U.S. petitioner. (Please note: We can only release the test results once the balance amount has been paid in full.)
