A DNA maternity test is used to conclusively determine whether a suspected mother is the biological mother of the child tested. The DNA from each participant is extracted from the cells and then amplified using a technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for further analysis. This amplified DNA is then analyzed using a method called Short Tandem Repeat (STR) analysis, which captures the genetic information for each marker. This data is then used to determine the probability that a woman is the biological mother of the child tested. With the exception of any mutations, the woman being tested must match the child’s data at every marker tested in order to be considered the biological mother.
Yes, the kit can be split and the sample collection components sent to each address separately. The collection components are individually barcoded, and will be tested together once the samples arrive at the laboratory. To order a split kit, please write the following into the Order notes box of the online order form “Please split kit”. 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)”.
