Dad-It-Yourself – £30 DNA Paternity Test Kits Over Chemist Counter
Johannesburg, South Africa – July 17, 2009 – The Sun’s Emma Morton writes about over-the-counter DNA paternity testing kits.
Dads will soon be able to buy DNA paternity test kits over the counter – to prove kids are theirs.
The £30 packs let them take simple swabs which are flown to a lab for analysis.
Ian Meekins, boss of International Biosciences (IBDNA) in Edenbridge, Kent, has been selling the kits online for several years. He hopes to have them available in every High Street chemist within three weeks.
Mr Meekins said: “The results come back after a week. You can pay more to get them quicker. We’re not moral guardians and do not judge. We don’t give direction just provide factual evidence.”
