I was unable to find any feedback about this new lab. Anyone had any testing done there?

Hey I was wondering if you had tried the gfi lab yet? I have been looking at them for a test but I am not sure they are legit. Please let me know if you did in fact go through them.

I used this lab and received inaccurate results. I was told the alleged father was not the father. I went through another more expensive lab that was accredited and found out that he actually was the father. When I first called GFI lab to ask them if it was possible for the results to be wrong, the lady I spoke with said that she had to ask because she was new. I would think that they would have trained people answering the phones there.

Same here... test excluded him as the father when he was the only one I was with. Went to an accredited facility where technicians did all the work and he came back as 99.99% as father. You get what you pay for.$79 bucks was not worth the hassle.

I too got inaccurate results from this lab. My sons DNA and his fathers DNA which I never saw get collected. Was collected from a third party lab that apparently sends their samples to be tested here.. prior to going through with the DNA test, i contacted the lab and they assured me the samples get sent to an accredited lab to get tested. The day the results came back has got to be by far the worst day of my life.. my sons father has disappeared and wants nothing to do with our son. It is IMPOSSIBLE for someone else to be his father.. he declined getting retested and believes what this test result says .. it shows he matched 10/16 alleles.. the document I got looks completely unprofessional and says the name of the lab that collected they're DNA and not the actual lab that tested. It only says gfi lab in tiny letters way at the bottom and that's how I knew the name of the lab .I was wondering if perhaps gfi lab had on file if they even ever receive their samples. My sons father hasn't wanted him from the start and I want to believe that he had somethin to do with the results. Do any of u know if gfi keeps anything on file. And also I would like to see if ur DNA results paper looks like mine. also how many alleles matched and didnt.I think Mine is fake. Please email me at [email protected] I really need to get this settled. Atleast so i can prove to everyone that I'm NOT lying and that he is my sons father. i will also like to know what lab you retested at.

I am a father I use this company I don't know if they are a scam I took the test the results came back 99.99% I'm not sure if they are a legit company I'm going to take another test with the real people down town at city hall if I get the same results then they are legit but if the results come back negative I'm suing these people I still got all my documents and reciept. For those who know me I'm just trying to figure out the truth my daughter is not looking like me everyday I wake up

I used this lab, found and it was very quick and effecient. The other party read this blog, and asked for a second option. We went through easydna. Test results came back the same. GFI labs was much quicker and cheaper.

GFI LAB IS a BIG RIPOFF!

I had a bad experience with this lab-do not use them for forensic testing. They have a lower price but they can never generate DNA-out of 9 samples- mostly soda cans they could not generate a single profile. I used alltestsonline-also a big ripoff-they use GFI-again they offer a lower price but I don't think they are even running a test-they are just taking your money! DO NOT USE ALL TESTS ONLINE OR GFI LABS.

I to got the same results it said 10 out of 16 alleles but we retested after doing some research and it came back he is the father. Anyone who has had a test done there should look into another

Results can only be reported for the samples received. My guess is different samples were sent to two different labs. Because they are tested twice for exclusions, it is extremely unlikely for the results to be wrong. Sounds like there's more to this story that is not written.

I think they are making up there test. I just got two test done with them and both say 10 out of 16. Im going somewhere else and if my results come back different them I'm suing because I'm not about to be ripped off. I thought that when you do DNA whether or not the person is or isn't the father there should still be a percentage.

I would like to know if your results were the same. My test came in 99.99% with the person who I didn't think was the gather and I still feel that in my heart and now my family is broken. I have doubt in my results so I would love to know yours

I had doubts that one of my children were mine. I am a white man and i have a white baby mama but a child that was conceived when we were not dating but still sleeping together seemed to have a weird pigment on his face, black baby hair and a big nose so i was suspicious. I decided to get 3 out of 4 of our children tested and used their lab. The results came back positive for the 2 i thought were mine and only 9 out of 16 on the little black baby. with a 0% chance of me being the father. Given the circumstances i would say this lab is legit.

No i have yet to take another test, but still in my mind to do so. I think her father now will just think im in denial so unsure how to go about with this. Thats why im so curious to know if you tooken another test and if the match this labs results.
