About Us

At Genetrace, we are dedicated to providing cutting-edge DNA testing services to individuals and organizations across North America. As one of the largest and most trusted DNA testing laboratories on the continent, we take pride in our commitment to innovation, accuracy, and world-class quality standards.

A Legacy of Excellence

Our roots trace back to our beginnings as a legal and forensic DNA testing facility. Over the years, we have earned a reputation for performing advanced DNA analysis for government agencies, hospitals, legal professionals, and law enforcement agencies. We were pioneers in implementing buccal swab DNA collection for routine casework nearly two decades ago, setting the standard for innovative testing methods. This legacy of excellence has driven our mission to remain at the forefront of DNA testing technology through continuous research and development.

Comprehensive DNA Testing Solutions

Our state-of-the-art laboratory network encompasses over 1,000 chain-of-custody specimen collection facilities worldwide, ensuring reliable and secure handling of samples. We offer an extensive menu of DNA tests, including identity verification, paternity and relationship testing, ancestry tracing, and clinical molecular diagnostics for genetic disorders. Our expertise in DNA testing technology and molecular research allows us to continuously develop and implement the latest advancements in the field.

Trusted by Professionals and Consumers

For over two decades, Genetrace has been the trusted choice for medical diagnostic and identity testing services among hospitals, legal professionals, and government organizations throughout North America and internationally. Our test results are admissible in courts across the United States and Canada, thanks to our stringent chain-of-custody protocols and fully accredited testing facilities.

In recent years, we have expanded our offerings to include direct-to-consumer DNA testing. This allows individuals to conveniently access DNA testing for medical, identity, and forensic applications, furthering our mission of making DNA testing accessible to all.

Advanced DNA Solutions

Our state-of-the-art DNA testing laboratory provides the latest and most advanced DNA testing technology for clients from around the world in specialty areas including:

Medical Molecular Diagnostics

We are a leading medical and clinical molecular genetics laboratory, performing complex diagnostic assays for a wide range of genetic diseases, with continued development of new tests and improved testing methodologies.

Identity & Paternity

Identity testing, including paternity and relationship testing for legal and medical communities, is one of our core businesses. With our extensive network of chain-of-custody collection sites worldwide, our legal reports are fully court-recognized and admissible.


Our laboratory offers a comprehensive selection of molecular ancestry testing services, enabling individuals to trace their ancestry using DNA. By analyzing Y-DNA and mtDNA markers, we can determine an individual’s placement in the phylogenetic tree of humankind, revealing their connections to ancestral family groups throughout history.

Our test menu is continually expanding as a result of active test development and research efforts, ensuring we remain at the forefront of DNA testing technology.
