  6. 6. Laboratories THAILAND PTC INTERNATIONAL ACCREDITATIONS AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) is the industry-recognised regulating authority for Relationship Testing, required for Legal and Immigration DNA Testing in many countries. The AABB sets all of the regulations for standardisation testing, reporting, and forms, as well as the setting minimum test requirements. ISO17025 is an international accreditation for paternity and forensic testing from the International Standards Organisation. This is a requirement in many countries around the World to perform Legal testing, including Thailand. This authority also sets chain-of-custody rules for Legal Testing. VIEW CERTIFICATES & VIEW CERTIFICATES & DNA REGULATION & ACCREDITATION DNA Relationship Testing is not regulated by a government agency. Therefore, accreditation is the only safeguard a private individual has to know that a paternity testing laboratory is performing sound and accepted scientific methodology. Paternity Testing Corporation (PTC) holds numerous accreditations, making us one of the most utilised and trusted DNA labs in the World.
  7. 7. Laboratories THAILAND PTC INTERNATIONAL ACCREDITATIONS NYDOH is a Relationship Testing Accreditation. New York is the only state in the USA that regulates standards for paternity testing and this stringent accreditation is essential to test anyone in New York for paternity. Paternity Testing Corporation is NYDOH accredited for Parentage & Identity Testing. CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) are regulatory standards that apply to all clinical laboratory testing on humans in the USA, except clinical trials and basic research. Paternity Testing Corporation is CLIA-accredited for our Clinical Testing. VIEW CERTIFICATES & VIEW CERTIFICATES & FOOD & DRUG ADMINISTRATION CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL CENTER FOR MEDICAID SERVICES ASCLD/LAB (American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board) is a not-for-profit organization specializing in the accreditation of public and private crime laboratories since 1982.

  10. 10. Laboratories THAILAND PTC IN THE COURTS Jimmy Eacker Murder Trial This case has an on-going evidentiary hearing to decide whether the prosecution criminally withheld evidence in this case, ultimately the defense is trying to get Mr Eacker a new trial, or have his conviction dropped. Samples of the vaginal swab have been sent to Paternity Testing Corporation by request of the Alaska Police department to assist in this case. READ ABOUT IT IN THE NEWS:   Theopolis Hughes Johnson II Murder Case The case is a statutory rape and murder case of a 13 year old pregnant girl. Paternity Testing Corporation issued a report stating there was a 99.992% probability that the son Theopolis Hughes Johnson III was that father of the deceased girl's baby. While the Missouri state highway patrol also concluded it was the DNA of the father Theopolis Hughes Johnson II, who was on the vaginal swab from the deceased girl. The girl was 22 weeks’ pregnant at the time of death. READ ABOUT IT IN THE NEWS:   Johnny Briscoe Murder Case This was a wrongful conviction, and framed case for murder by an acquaintance. Paternity Testing Corporation processed the DNA samples from the cigarettes that were forgotten by the St Louis Police Department's crime lab, to exonerate him. READ ABOUT IT IN THE NEWS:   Arbie Dean Williams Murder Case This is the investigation in to the death of 15 year old Linda Strait in 1982. At the time, DNA testing was not available. In 1998, prosecutors sent the DNA laced pillow case to Paternity Testing Corporation. Paternity Testing Corporation was able to obtain a partial DNA profile from the pillowcase. Which led prosecutors to a suspect, that was already incarcerated for another crime. READ ABOUT IT IN THE NEWS:   Anthony Woods Rape Case This is a wrongful conviction case. Woods refused to ever admit wrongdoing causing him to spend 18 years in prison, even though he would have been released earlier if he admitted to the crime. In 2005 Paternity Testing Corporation obtained a partial profile from the derogated sample from this case, exonerating Woods. Woods' conviction has since been overturned. READ ABOUT IT IN THE NEWS:

  24. 24. Laboratories THAILAND PTC “THE RIGHT ANSWER FIRST TIME, EVERY TIME.” ª  PTC maintains a guaranteed minimum 99.99% Policy on ALL but one of our standard relationship tests. ª  Due to being such a new technology, our Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity test (via blood sample) currently has a guarantee of 99.9%. ª  A mutation or a motherless test will NOT affect this policy, as we continue to test the sample until the Paternity Index (PI) is 10,000 or an inclusion rate of 99.99%. ª  An At-Home/Peace-of-Mind Test will NOT affect this policy. Just because a client choses a peace-of-mind (non-Legal) test, does not mean that they do not deserve proper testing and a correct answer. ª  If there is not enough genetic material to perform the test (such as when testing unusual samples, such as a toothbrush, cigarette butt, etc.), we will request a different sample to continue the test and to honour our 99.99% Policy.
