Find out whether you are the biological father of a child
This DNA Paternity Test (Private Home Kit) is ideal for families who wish to determine the truth about paternity in private, before deciding on the next step. The mouth swab can be collected quickly and discreetly in the privacy of your own home and sent to our laboratory for analysis. You will receive your paternity test results in your online account or by mail or email.
This paternity analysis conclusively determines whether an alleged father is the biological father of the child.
DNA Paternity Test Usage
The DNA Paternity Test will conclusively determine whether an alleged father is the biological father of a child. A DNA Paternity Test can be performed with or without the mother.
DNA Paternity Test Methods
During a DNA Paternity Test, a painless buccal (mouth) swab sample is collected from the child and the alleged father. 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.
DNA Paternity Test Results
Your DNA paternity test results will show two numbers (alleles) that indicate the number of repeats that you received from each parent at each STR tested. You may have two identical alleles at a marker, or you may have two different alleles. One of each allele will match to each of your parents; hence in a father-child relationship, 50% of the STR variation will be identical. This analysis conclusively determines whether an alleged father is the biological father of the child.
