Carrying out an infidelity test
First and foremost you need to collect the sample which has drawn your suspicions to send for analysis in our partner laboratories. Was it a stain on your partner’s top? A lip mark on a drinking glass? A Kleenex? This will give us a DNA sample to analyse. Whatever sample of biological material has triggered your doubts, EasyDNA give customers a complete consultation with regard the sample they plan using, which includes important information on how to collect and pack the sample.
Samples and forensic analysis
There are countless samples one can send – here are the most common ones that are submitted:
- Used tissues
It is important, however to make sure the quality of the sample is suitable for testing – this is important to assess the success rate of extracting DNA. In the majority of cases we are successful with extractions. Whilst we can offer a good estimate of the chances of successful DNA extraction for a particular sample we cannot fully guarantee it. There have been cases where some samples do not contain DNA at all or in which the tiny quantity of DNA did not allow to extract any significant amount of genetic markers to carry out an analysis. We always suggest you call us prior to sending samples, so we can discuss your case.

Through infidelity testing we can do any of the following:
- Carry out a DNA test on your chosen sample with the sole aim of determining whether the sample you provided contains male DNA, female DNA or profiles belonging to different people (perhaps two males or two females)
- Carry out further testing by comparing two DNA samples together to see if they belong to different people or to the same one person.
Infidelity tests are essentially scientific tests. They will just express what is found in purely scientific terms. The result cannot in anyway state that cheating or marital infidelity has taken place – these are deductions the client needs to make basing him or herself on the results of the analysis provided. EasyDNA can simply tell you whether sample X contains male or female DNA or whether sample X and sample Y belong to the same person or different people.
Apart from the unfailing quality and meticulousness of our entire DNA testing, our procedures are performed to the highest standard available in an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory.
