LabCorp understands that the needs of an attorney are often different from the needs of the tested parties, and our team is experienced in supporting the legal community. Our call center can be reached at

We respect and value your time. To that end, we offer attorneys the option to purchase services through our secure, online system or by using application forms that can be downloaded, completed, and faxed or mailed. If preferred, you may also order over the phone.

Once your order is received, we will schedule appointments for the collection of DNA samples for the parties involved in your case. Unless otherwise requested, you do not need to be involved in this process.

All sample collection for tests requested by an attorney will be conducted using our strict chain of custody procedures that document the identity of the tested parties and provide for secure transportation of samples to our testing laboratory. Internal processes are used throughout the testing process to maintain chain of custody. Our paternity laboratory in Burlington, North Carolina is accredited by AABB, the New York State Department of Health, is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board/FQS and has College of American Pathologists (CAP) accreditation. This laboratory also participates in numerous proficiency tests to ensure continual high performance.

All results meeting accreditation standards will be signed by one of our many expert PhD scientists and then notarized. The reports also contain a statement of accreditation.
