CALL MEADVILLE MEDICAL CENTER LABORATORY TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT.
DNA specimens are COLLECTED at Meadville Medical Center Laboratory and sent to the performing laboratory. Specimens are collected as per individual lab specifications. Some laboratories may require the following specimens: mouth swabs, thumbprints, and photographs.
Chain-of-custody is a record of the disposition of a sample to document who collected it, who handled it, and who performed the analysis. Chain-of-custody is required whenever the results of testing could be used in a court of law. Its purpose is to protect the rights of the individual contributing the specimen by demonstrating that it was under the control of personnel involved with testing the specimen at all times; this control implies that the opportunity for specimen tampering would be limited.
Days Set Up: Monday through Friday
