DNA Profiles for Children

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare. Their child was supposed to get home from school three hours ago, but they’re nowhere to be found. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States alone. Sadly, some of these kids never make it home. While we hope it never happens to us, it’s always better to be safe rather than sorry.

Benefits of DNA Profiles for Children

In the event your child ever goes missing, having an accessible DNA profile can prove critical when it comes to proper identification. In many cases, bodies uncovered are unrecognizable, and DNA testing can quickly confirm or deny if it’s the child you’re looking for.

The staff here at Test Smartly Labs follows a strict chain-of-custody, and we ensure your results are reliable in the unfortunate event they ever need accessed. The collection process is easy and painless and involves:

Swabbing both cheeks with two separate Q-tips
Allowing the sample to dry
Storing the sample appropriately

Better Safe Than Sorry

If you ask any parent of an abducted child, they’ll likely say they thought it could never happen to them. While it’s statistically unlikely, you’re better off safe than sorry. The team here at Test Smartly Labs values of the lives of our children, and we ensure all results are ones you can rely on if the unthinkable does happen. Call today to see how we can help.
