The business, run by Joseph, a retired Somerville police officer, and his wife Laura, conducts DNA testing used to determine paternity for child support/custody cases, as well as familial ties for inheritance cases, or simply for peace of mind.
MVP also handles forensic testing to assist in civil and criminal cases; for instance, they were recently able to help determine who was driving a car involved in an accident by testing blood left on the driver’s side airbag.
Additionally, DNA genetic testing may be required for immigration, such as when a relative from overseas is requesting permanent residency to live in the U.S., or when the government requires proof of relationship to grant U.S. citizenship to a child born abroad. MVP Testing is equipped to work with foreign countries to acquire samples and get the testing and paperwork completed.
MVP also offers CPR and First Aid classes, drug and alcohol testing, and infidelity DNA testing.
The downtown Lowell location is their second office, the other is located on South Broadway Street in Lawrence.
Be it hereby known to all that
the City of Lowell in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

A nationwide leader in DNA genetic testing, the science that tells us who we are and from where
we came, MVP provides a service that help individuals reveal what years ago would have
remained a mystery; answers that bring peace of mind and help to bring families together.
The entire City of Lowell extends its deepest wishes to MVP for great success in Lowell.
