DNA Paternity Test Methods

Upon receiving your samples, our lab experts begin by extracting DNA from the swabs. We use Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology to amplify specific DNA markers known as Short Tandem Repeats (STRs). These unique genetic sequences vary in repetition from person to person, making them an ideal tool for identifying genetic relationships.

Understanding Your Results
In your test report, STRs are presented as pairs of numbers (alleles) representing the number of sequence repetitions. Each individual inherits one allele from each parent. The test checks up to 27 different STR markers from both the child and the potential father. A match in the STR patterns confirms paternity with over 99.999% accuracy, while a mismatch rules out paternity with 100% certainty.

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 the Alleged Father’s kit to [Name, Address]” and “Send the Child’s 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 Paternity Test. Legal DNA Paternity 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 Paternity Testing is available in the US, Canada and UK.

No, there are no age restrictions for participating in a DNA paternity 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.

If the alleged father is unavailable, testing his direct relatives (e.g. grandparents, siblings, or aunts/uncles) can be considered as an alternative.

No, the mother does not need to provide a sample if her biological relationship to the child is established and only the paternity is in question. Conclusive paternity results can be obtained without testing the mother.

In cases where the alleged fathers are closely related, it’s recommended to test both if available. If only one is available for testing, including the mother can help in obtaining more definitive results. Our high-resolution extended DNA marker panel ensures accurate results even in cases of related alleged fathers.

If the tested man is the biological father, the probability of paternity on your test results will indicate 99.999% or higher.

If the tested man is not the biological father, the probability of paternity will indicate 0%.
