DNA Paternity Test
Fast, Powerful and Proven
DNA Paternity Testing is the most advanced and accurate method available for resolving parentage for medical, legal, or personal reasons.
Turnaround Time: With advanced DNA technology, paternity testing is accurate, rapid and affordable. Paternity can now be determined 3 to 5 business days after the samples arrive at the laboratory. Results are released immediately once the testing is completed.
Description: During a DNA paternity test, a buccal swab (mouth swab) specimen is collected from the child and the alleged father. Testing the mother is optional. The sample which is collected 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, 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) for careful examination. The DNA pattern of the child is compared to that of the alleged father. Because the genetic information of a child is inherited from his/her biological parents, examination of the DNA of the child will conclusively determine whether the alleged father is the true biological father of the child.
Can the kit be shipped to more than one address if the parties live in different cities? If the parties to be tested live at different addresses, we can split the kit and send the kit to each address separately. Since the kits are individually barcode labeled, they will be tested together once the samples arrive back at the laboratory. To order a split kit, simply state "please split this kit" in the comments box of the online order form. Please also indicate the name and address to send each component. For example, please state "send the Alleged Father's portion to... (specify name and address)" and "send the Child's portion to... (specify name and address)". Alternatively, you can choose to have the entire kit shipped to you and you can split the kit yourself and send the components to the other parties in the test.
Does the mother need to be tested? Testing the mother is optional. The test is absolutely conclusive even if the mother is not tested.
How long does the Paternity Test take? Results are available in 3 to 5 business days once our laboratory receives the samples from all parties involved in the test.
