Forensic Tests involving analysis of DNA,

to include accredited genomic analysis for identification.

For use in Court, samples collected at home have been regarded as inadequate, since this requires tests to be performed in nationally accredited laboratories, where a chain of custody, and continuity of evidence can be sustained in law. For example, the New York State Department of Health prohibited any DNA testing without a full chain of custody and a request from a physician or other authorized official.
In some states, these laboratories provide documentation so than the latter conditions are met. Only web-sites offering these facilities should be included in the category Forensic_Science.

DNA testing has largely replaced the identification by immunochemical methods of blood from species other than humans.
