Testing in New York State

Legal DNA Tests in New York State

DNA testing in the state of New York requires submission by an authorized person, typically a physician or court order. You may place an order for a legal DNA test, but you must mail, fax, or email a court order or physician prescription (with the name of the tested party) to LabCorp. No appointments for sample collection will be scheduled until the court order or physician’s prescription has been received. For parties requesting a copy of the results please complete the Authorization for Release of Paternity Test Results State of New York Form and send with the other required documents..

The prescription or court order may be faxed to LabCorp at 336-538-6411 or scanned and emailed to DNAinquiry@labcorp.com. You may also mail these to LabCorp DNA, 1440 York Court, Burlington, NC 27215.

At-home DNA Collection Kits

Because New York State requires this physician or court order, LabCorp does not send at-home DNA collection kits to New York addresses.
