How Is A Paternity Test Done?

A paternity test is typically done through a process called DNA testing. The most common method used for paternity testing is called a DNA comparison test. Here's how a typical paternity test is done:

  1. Sample Collection: The first step is to collect DNA samples from the alleged father, child, and, if available, the mother. The samples are usually collected using buccal swabs, which are small cotton swabs that are rubbed against the inside of the cheek to collect cheek cell samples. Buccal swabs are painless, non-invasive, and easy to use.

  2. DNA Extraction: After the samples are collected, the DNA needs to be extracted from the collected cells. This involves breaking open the cells and isolating the DNA. The extraction process removes other cellular material and concentrates the DNA for further analysis.

  3. DNA Analysis: Once the DNA is extracted, it undergoes analysis in a laboratory. The laboratory technicians use various techniques to examine specific regions of the DNA known as genetic markers. The markers used in paternity testing are highly variable between individuals, making them useful for determining biological relationships.

  4. Comparison of Genetic Markers: The DNA profiles of the alleged father and child are compared to identify matching genetic markers. A child inherits half of their genetic material from their biological father, so if the alleged father is indeed the biological father, there should be matching markers between them.

  5. Statistical Analysis: The laboratory performs a statistical analysis to calculate the probability of paternity based on the genetic data. The analysis compares the observed genetic markers between the alleged father and child and determines the likelihood of obtaining the results if the alleged father is the biological father versus if he is not.

  6. Results: The laboratory generates a paternity test report with the results. The report typically includes a probability of paternity, indicating the likelihood of the alleged father being the biological father. A probability of 99% or higher is generally considered conclusive proof of paternity, while lower probabilities indicate exclusion of paternity.

It's important to note that accredited laboratories following rigorous quality control procedures ensure accurate and reliable results. The entire process, from sample collection to receiving the test results, usually takes a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the laboratory and the specific testing method used.
