Paternity Test Basics
To put it simply, a paternity test is a DNA test that is used to establish a child’s biological father. A sample is collected from both the suspected father and the child in question. This sample is then analyzed to determine if the two individuals are genetically related.
How can DNA tell us this? Human DNA is essentially a list of genes that are unique to each individual. Parents pass copies of these genes down to their children, which means that there are direct similarities between the DNA of parents and their biological children. If two individuals share a similar DNA sequence, they are genetically related.
A paternity test involves the following process:
- Both individuals come to our facilities to take the test
- One of our certified lab collectors will use a cotton swab to swipe the inside of both of the individuals’ cheeks in order to collect buccal cells
- The samples from both individuals will be sent to our state-of-the-art lab to be analyzed for similar DNA sequences
- Our results are delivered quickly to the relevant parties as soon as they are available, usually within 2-3 days
Paternity tests are a fast, non-invasive procedure. Our lab collectors are highly trained to ensure that you are completely comfortable during the quick swab and that the specimens are handled correctly and safely. All of your test results are held completely confidential, so you can trust that only the right people will see your test results. Because results may be used to meet legal guidelines, you can rest assured that testing is accurate.
