About the Test
The DNA Twin Test will definitively determine whether a set of twins are identical or fraternal. Identical twins are genetically identical and will share the exact same DNA profile, whereas fraternal twins only share about 50% of their DNA. A comprehensive genetic report is included with every test.
In a DNA twin test, a buccal swab (mouth swab) is used to collect cells from each twin. These cells contain unique genetic information in the form of DNA. In our lab, we extract the DNA from the cells and amplify specific DNA regions using PCR (polymerase chain reaction) for a comprehensive examination. The DNA patterns of the twins are then compared to determine whether they are identical or fraternal twins with conclusive results.

Who should consider the Private Test option?
The private home test kit option is suitable for individuals who wish to find out the truth about paternity before deciding on the next step. If a private test is ordered, a buccal swab (mouth) swab DNA kit is sent directly to the parties involved in the test for sample collection. The sample collection process is quick, easy and discreet and takes just minutes to complete. Once the laboratory receives the samples, testing is completed within 1 to 2 business days.
What if the participants don't live in the same city?
If the participants live in different cities, you can split the kit and send the components to each party for sample collection. Each component has a barcode to ensure the samples are tested together when they arrive at the laboratory. Even if the samples are collected separately, they will still be tested together once they arrive at the laboratory.
How long does it take to get the results?
Results are typically available within 1-2 business days after the samples are received at our lab. This quick turnaround time ensures you get the answers you need as soon as possible.
Do I need to go to a lab?
No, you don’t need to visit a lab for DNA Twin Testing. We will send you a discreet DNA test kit so that you can collect the samples in the privacy of your own home.
Is the DNA Twin Test confidential?
Yes, your personal information and test results are handled with the utmost confidentiality. We adhere to strict privacy protocols and industry standards to ensure your information is secure. Your results are only shared with you, unless you give explicit permission for them to be shared with others.
