PTC's Mission, Vision and Values

MISSION

The Mission of Paternity Testing Corporation is to provide the most reliable DNA genetic test available, at a reasonable price, with an exceptional level of service to the client.

We strive to lead the industry to higher levels of reliability in DNA paternity testing through discussion, example, and competitive pressure. We will also take the time to do whatever we can to protect consumers from sharp practices and fraud in the human identity industry.

Paternity Testing Corporation is committed to developing and providing DNA genetic testing services for orphan diseases. Because of the small number of people affected by orphan diseases, such DNA testing is often not cost effective for the provider. But people with a family history of hereditary DNA genetic disease need DNA testing services, and our area of expertise places us in a position to help.

Paternity Testing Corporation is committed to providing clients with an understanding of the nature and significance of the DNA testing they receive.

It is also an important part of our mission to provide these services in a workplace environment that is humane, warm and supportive of employees. We aspire to provide jobs that people enjoy coming to, and that allow people to have a life outside of work.

VISION

We envision a world in which reliable, affordable DNA genetic testing is available to all who need it.

We envision a society in which the workplace is a positive expression of an individual’s contribution to society, in which the individual feels both responsible and proud, no matter what job the individual performs.

VALUES

These core values constitute the fundamental principals that drive Paternity Testing Corporation.

VALUES IN DNA GENETIC TESTING

Paternity Testing Corporation will not release a DNA paternity test until we are comfortable that the results are reliable. This commitment has led us to guarantee a minimum level of DNA testing for paternity that is much higher than any other accredited U.S DNA paternity testing laboratory.

Paternity Testing Corporation takes great pride in the quality of DNA paternity testing and the level of service that we provide to clients.

We believe that honesty and integrity are essential to our business.

We believe in doing business with a conscience and a heart.

We believe that doing things right, and doing the right thing, are more important than corporate profits. While a business understandably can not operate by losing money, there are other important issues to take into account. We believe that in making corporate decisions profit is only one of the considerations, and not the most important consideration. This can be seen, for example, in the additional amount of DNA testing we perform, the voluntary additional procedures we implement to avoid human error in DNA paternity testing and assure reliability, and the employee benefits we provide.

We believe that clients should be able to obtain the necessary information to make informed choices about the type of DNA testing to receive, the amount of DNA testing to receive, and to make choices between various providers of DNA paternity testing. We value the opportunity and the responsibility to answer clients’ questions about DNA testing, both before and after the DNA test is performed. We will provide the opportunity for clients to speak to human beings and not just recording devices, and to get answers to their questions about any of our tests that they are considering taking, and about the results they receive.
