Tips on Choosing the Best Genealogy Testing Company in Canada

Tips on Choosing the Best Genealogy Testing Company in Canada

People who are living in Canada should educate themselves regarding the basics of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and genetic genealogy fundamentals if they wanted to know their family history.
However, the easiest way to do it is to test their DNA before starting their DNA research. Therefore, it is necessary to choose the right DNA testing company.

1.Know the person who will take charge of your DNA testing. Keep in mind that the DNA or genetic picture is a portion of you. You need to asses their expertise and professionalism when administering and handling your DNA sample. You should not gamble such test because the success of your genealogy research depends on it.

2.Learn if the company is following the set standard associated with genealogy research. This is important when comparing results from one testing company to another. You should be aware that the new industry or new technology is lacking the conformability and standards among competing organizations. This is because the early DNA testing promoters were only quick in selling without any concern to adhere to the industry’s standards.

3.Ask the company about the markers they are using. The markers or loci can be chosen from mutation rates, reproducibility, and variability in populations. The procedure that is very challenging in genealogical studies is to find a locus having a better mutation rates. Variability is needed so that every male who undergoes the same tests would not acquire the same value.

4.Make sure that the results are reliable. The samples that are processed in the company’s laboratory should be tested in duplicates. Likewise, be processed by batches. Every processed specimen should be independently reviewed by bio-analysts. Duplication testing is done to ensure the procedure’s integrity. As much as possible, the company uses negative test and multiple positive controls to maintain the validity of results. Choose a company who considers your DNA tests a very important procedure in your life.

5.The company’s DNA laboratory must be internationally accredited of ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 17025 in connections with all services on human identification and AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) for testing parentage. This is to ensure that the testing process of your DNA is done with great precautions. Thus, contaminations are always prevented.

When you choose an accredited DNA laboratory in connection with the internal control system, it ensures that the DNA testing as well as analysis is performed under an international recognized DNA laboratory protocols. This can give you more reliable and accurate results.

6.Make sure that the testing company can discuss your DNA results clearly. All the resources and important tools are provided to properly assess genetic results. Moreover, the company has a genealogy specialist who is ready to assist and answer your questions regarding your genealogical pursuits. Consulting services for genetics and professional research is also present.

7.Online resources which focus on database matching, status tracking, surname search, and others are also accessible from the company. This helps project coordinators track, organize, interpret, and grow from their projects.

Now, any Canadian can fulfill their task of finding their family history. A dream come true for them.
