Need court-admissible DNA results?

Find out whether you are the biological aunt/uncle of a niece/nephew.

This DNA Aunt/Uncle Test is ideal in situations where the alleged parent(s) are not available for testing. The missing parent’s siblings can be tested against the child using the DNA Aunt/Uncle Test to determine the likelihood of a biological relationship between a potential aunt or uncle and a niece or nephew. With this easy-to-use home kit, you can collect a mouth swab quickly and discreetly in the privacy of your own home and send it to our laboratory for analysis. Your test results will be available for download from your secure online account within 1-2 business days of receipt at the lab.

If the parent(s) in question are available for testing, either the DNA Paternity Test or DNA Maternity Test is always recommended over the DNA Aunt/Uncle Test.


DNA Aunt/Uncle Test Methods

During a DNA Aunt/Uncle Test, a buccal (mouth) swab sample is collected from the child and the potential aunt/uncle. The sample contains cells, and most of the cells in our body contain a full set of genetic information in the form of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). A person’s DNA represents a “genetic blueprint” and, like a fingerprint, it is unique to each individual.

At the laboratory, the DNA is extracted from the cell and specific regions of the DNA are amplified by a process known as PCR (polymerase chain reaction). Our test analyzes 16 to 27 of these specific regions, called short tandem repeats (STRs). STRs are regions of DNA in which a short DNA sequence is repeated multiple times. They are found throughout the genome and are highly variable, providing an accurate way to confirm or refute biological relationships.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about this test. Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

Absolutely. If the individuals participating in the test are in different locations, we can send parts of the DNA test kit to different cities. During checkout, please enter “Please split kit” in the “Additional Notes” comments box and let us know where to send each component. For example, you can say “Send one kit to [Name, Address]” and “Send the second kit to [Name, Address]”. Each component is individually barcoded, ensuring that your samples will be tested together once they arrive at the laboratory.

If you need DNA results for legal purposes, such as court proceedings, child custody or support, or inheritance claims, you will need to order the Legal DNA Aunt/Uncle Test. Legal DNA Aunt/Uncle Tests require a chain of custody procedure to be admissible in court. This involves having the DNA samples collected by a neutral third party, proper identification of the test participants, and the samples being directly sent to the testing laboratory. Legal DNA Aunt/Uncle Testing is available in the US, Canada and UK.

No, there are no age restrictions for participating in a DNA aunt/uncle test. This test is suitable for individuals of any age, including newborns. For minors, a legal guardian’s consent is required.

No. The test kits do not have an expiration date and can be stored indefinitely before sample collection. However, once a sample is collected, it’s best to return the kit to our laboratory for testing within 3 months.

DNA collection is a simple, safe, and painless process. It involves gently rubbing a brush (buccal swab) inside the mouth against the cheek for 15 seconds.

Your results will show two numbers (alleles) that indicate the number of repeats that you received from each parent at each STR. You may have two identical alleles at a marker, or you may have two different alleles. These allele numbers are compared between the alleged aunt/uncle and child, and a statistical analysis is performed based on the match type typically expected for true aunt/uncle and nephew/niece pairs, and a “kinship index” is obtained.

  • Biologically related aunt/uncle and nephew/niece pairs are typically expected to have a kinship index value that is greater than 1.0
  • The greater the kinship index value over 1.0, the higher the likelihood that the two individuals are biologically related
  • Individuals who are not biologically related are expected to have a kinship index value that is less than 1.0
