Warnex PRO-DNA Services
Warnex PRO-DNA Services, a division of Gamma-Dynacare Medical Laboratories, specializes in forensic DNA testing, including nuclear and mitochondrial DNA analysis. We are the only private laboratory in Canada providing five types of forensic DNA analyses: STR, Y-STR, miniSTR, PRO-DNA® Lead and mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA testing is crucial in cases where nuclear DNA testing is not possible, such as for shed hairs at crime scenes, identification of missing persons (skeletal remains with degraded DNA), and when there is insufficient nuclear DNA. We also provide DNA tests for paternity and other family relationships, which can be used for legal or immigration purposes. Our facilities in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and Laval, Quebec, are accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (ISO 17025) and our Thunder Bay facility is also accredited by the American Society of Crime Lab Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board - International® (ASCLD/LAB-International®).
