A DNA paternity test is used to conclusively determine whether a suspected father is the biological father 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 the man tested is the biological father of the child tested. With the exception of any mutations, the man being tested must match the child’s data at every marker tested in order to be considered the biological father.
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)”.
Legal paternity testing requires you to attend an appointment for sample collection. If you need a legal paternity test, purchase this kit and follow the enclosed instructions to pay the difference and switch to legal paternity testing. Legal paternity testing is available in the US, Canada and UK.
No. The DNA paternity tests can be performed on individuals of any age, even newborns. If the patient is a minor, the legal guardian must sign the DNA paternity testing consent form.
If the mother already knows that she is the biological mother of a child, then there is no need to test her if only the alleged father is in question. A conclusive answer regarding paternity can be obtained without testing the mother.
All DNA paternity test kits are stored at room temperature before and after sample collection.
No. Test kits can be stored indefinitely prior to sample collection. Test kits should be returned for testing within 3 months after sample collection.
