What is DNA testing

DNA paternity testing is a complex scientific process, carried out on a simple mouth swab, which can positively identify relationships between people. Most commonly it is used to establish if a man is the true biological father of a child. DNA paternity testing is also often referred to simply as a DNA test, a paternity test or DNA testing. It was developed by Sir Alec Jeffreys at the University of Leicester in 1985. Cellmark became the UK's first private DNA paternity testing laboratory in 1987. DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is the body's genetic 'blueprint'. It is a long thread-like molecule which carries the "genetic code" that determines our individual characteristics. DNA is found in almost all of the billions of cells that make up our body. Every child inherits a unique mixture of DNA from its parents so, except for identical twins, no two people in the world have exactly the same genetic code.

What to consider before you decide to have a DNA test

Paternity testing is not a decision which should be entered into lightly. Please consider whether this is the best course of action, particularly for any children involved. It may help you to discuss the issues and possible outcomes with a third party, either a friend or family member or an independent advice service. [ go to Youtube.com ]

Over the counter testing

How curious are you about the information in your DNA? Have you ever thought of taking a genetic test you can buy on the internet?

Report on over the counter DNA testing kits, November 17th 2009

Pharmacies in the UK have started to sell DNA paternity testing kits over the counter. In the past, such testing could only be arranged through a court order, with the DNA samples taken by a medical professional. Will this opportunity for the general public to buy these tests, in a similar way to being able to purchase home pregnancy testing kits, be in the best interests of the children?

Snell Helmet Testing with LabVIEW and CompactDAQ

viroadshow.blogspot.com The Snell Memorial Foundation works to make sure the helmets we use in transportation and sports are made according to the specs required to protect our heads when accidents happen. As a memorial to Pete, a group of scientists, physicians, racing colleagues and friends teamed together in a dedicated effort to promote research, education, testing and development of standards geared to improve the effectiveness of automotive racing helmets. Through their work, the Snell Memorial Foundation was established in 1957. Reading their list of tests will make me think twice before my next ride on a two-wheeler! Impact Test Positional Stability (Roll-Off) Test Dynamic Retention Test Chin Bar Test Shell Penetration Test Faceshield Penetration Test Flame Resistance Test This video was made for NI Week 2006 as an example CompactDAQ application. I wanted to post it because it (your helmet working when you need it) is one of those things that's easy to take for granted. Many thanks to Snell and the good work they do. [ go to Youtube.com ]

Consent and DNA testing

The Human Tissue Act received Royal Assent in November 2004, and was fully enacted on September 1st 2006. Whilst its main focus is to redress the inadequacy on the law on tissue retention the inclusion of the DNA theft clause in the Act (section 45) has implications for good practice in relation to paternity testing. Section 45 of the Act has a particular relevance to paternity testing given that it covers the non-consensual analysis of DNA. It stipulates that "A person commits an offence if he has any bodily material intending":- - that any human DNA in the material be analysed without qualifying consent, and - that the results of the analysis be used otherwise than for an excepted purpose, A person guilty of an offence under this section:- - is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum; - is liable on conviction on indictment to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 years, or to a fine, or to both.
