How to do a DNA test with Bio.be ?

Performing a DNA test with Bio.be can be done by a simple appointment at the IGP in Gosselies. A simple oral swab carried out on the spot by the medical staff is requested for the genetic analysis. You cannot use any other type of sample for the test. The laboratory offers this service either at the request of a court, or on a private basis, as part of a private test, some conditions must still be respected.

For private requests, all participants must agree to the test.

For children under 1 year old:

The consent must be provided by the mother and the father who must come to the appointment for the samples. It is important that the parties commit themselves voluntarily and without constraint to carrying out the DNA test.

Verification of the identity document and  the act  birth is done by the laboratory before the analyzes.

For children aged 1 to 15:

Analysis is possible if:

- The child bears the name of his mother and that he must be recognized by his biological father

- The request comes from a lawyer as part of an advance analysis in order to speed up legal proceedings.

For other requests, the general rule is to refuse the test in order to protect the interests of the child.

For children over 18:

The test can normally be accepted if all concerned agree. Even if the test only concerns the father and his child, it is imperative that the mother is aware and agrees.

Private Paternity Test

Requesting the analysis for a legal analysis can be done in several ways:

 

By requisition:

The court requisitions the laboratory to  execute   genetic analysis under the conditions prescribed by the judge. The indictments must be sent by post only.

Pro Deo procedure:

If the test falls within the framework of a Pro Deo procedure, the laboratory contacts the lawyers to ensure that the request has been granted to the applicants.

 

If the participant does not show up on the day of the appointment after a second reminder, the laboratory issues a default letter to the court indicating that he is incapacitated.  to accomplish  his mission.

Refusal to do a DNA test is possible but  must  be used as evidence to define the parentage of the child.
