DNA Legal is the leading provider of hair drug and alcohol tests to the UK family courts. They were asked to intervene by The Honourable Mr Justice Peter Jackson in a recent high court case to help the court understand how testing should be conducted and the limitations of testing.
The result saw DNA Legal receive great praise for leading the industry in terms of accuracy and precision, something which is strongly behind the ethos of the company.

With the recent announcement by the Ministry of Justice regarding the reliability of the way that toxicology tests were conducted by two laboratories, at DNA Legal they want not only to reassure all their clients of the care and accuracy of the tests they perform but also offer any support to those affected with results from those companies affected.

As a laboratory, DNA Legal have always had in place safeguarding and quality procedures to ensure absolute precision and reliability of each test carried out.

DNA Legal have been carrying out case reviews for people tested by the companies mentioned by the Ministry Of Justice and have seen a number of inaccuracies in the way reports have been written. Therefore, they are offering a free reporting case review to advise of any reporting errors and advise on what can be done about them.
