In Germany, the procedure to conduct a DNA test is regulated by the Genetic Diagnostics Act. This leads to a high degree of reliability in the results.
Every DNA lab is required to have a regular external audit
Every laboratory in Germany is subject to the same legal regulations for a DNA analysis:
How the samples are to be taken, which chemical analysis agents are to be used, how many gene locations are to be analysed, how are the results of the analysis to be interpreted. This makes results comparable and reliable.
In addition, there is the requirement that a DNA lab in Germany has to undergo regular audits by the external inspection body DAkks (German accreditation body). The Dakks auditors check the processes and procedures, they check whether the machines are set correctly and whether the experts who evaluate your analysis results are working correctly.
The current certification of the Dakks, ISO 17025, must be made available by every laboratory without being asked. You can find ours here: ISO 17025
