homeDNAdirect South Africa is based in Johannesburg, the provincial capital of Gauteng Province. From this office we can coordinate all DNA tests and assist you with your requirements. Once you have paid for your test, we can organize the dispatch of your kit to your address. Should you wish to, you can even collect the kit by prior appointment from our Johannesburg office. Our standard DNA tests (including our legal testing services) are carried out using sterile oral swabs. These swabs are simply rubbed inside the mouth to collect check cells which we can then analyze in our laboratory. View how easily you can collect samples in this way by going to our sample collection page. In cases where clients cannot provide us with oral swabs samples, we have available our advanced forensic testing services. Click here for more information about this. We also offer several relationship DNA testing services as the ultimate proof of relationship between alleged relatives.
