Would you like to confirm a parental relationship? If you are in need of DNA testing for the purposes of confirming identity for adoption, paternity, immigration or other reasons, you should explore Adoption DNA Testing.
DNA paternity and maternity testing is the most accurate method of confirming biological relationships between alleged parents and children. DNA testing is also commonly used to determine the probabilities of biological relationships between/among alleged siblings, grandparents, aunts/uncles, nieces/nephews and cousins. DNA testing is often used in situations involving child custody and/or support, adoption, inheritance and immigration. There are many technical applications for these various types of familial DNA tests, but often peace of mind is the most valuable.
A simple, painless oral swab is typically all that is required from each person to be tested. Samples may be collected from a person of any age, from a newborn to senior. For private matters, these samples can even be collected in the privacy of one’s own home. Various other types of DNA samples may be acceptable for testing. Please inquire for details.
Once samples are received into the laboratory, test results are generally made available to the client within 5-7 business days. Test results for DNA paternity or maternity tests will reveal either 0% or >99.9% probability of paternity or maternity. For all other familial DNA tests, results may reveal <1% to >99% probability of relationship.
DNA testing is a cost-effective way of obtaining peace of mind by confirming a familial relationship between two more more people.
