Not at all, it’s a quick and easy process. It only takes a minute, and is a completely noninvasive procedure.
After collecting your sample, the DNA Testing facility delivers your samples to an AABB DNA Testing lab. Then, the lab technicians analyze your DNA, and compile a report. Finally, they will send this report right to you
So far, DNA Testing remains the ‘Gold Standard’ for various testing purposes, due to its accuracy. DNA Testing is about 99.99% accurate for cases of inclusion. On the other hand, it is 100% accurate for denying the existence of a genetic match.
If an alleged father cannot be tested, regardless of the reason, paternity can be established indirectly through other close relatives. These tests include: Grandparentage Tests, Siblingship Tests, and Avuncular Tests.
Yes. Other biological specimens can be used, such as blood, hair follicles (not cut hair), seminal or vaginal fluids, skin, bones and teeth, among others. In situations where DNA Testing must be discreet, check with our medical assistant for other options. We can generally accept other items and materials suspected of containing DNA, though we cannot guarantee the DNA’s viability or presence, due to possible contamination, age, improper storage. Call us for more information on this matter.
Yes, as long as the sample collections occur reasonably close in days to each other.
Chain of Custody refers to the proper custody and control of DNA samples, throughout the testing process, to ensure the results are accurate and cannot be tampered with at any stage of the process. It includes a neutral third party, who can identify the parties being tested, and collect their DNA samples. Also, it covers the delivery of paperwork and samples to a testing location, without any tampering. Lastly, the proper handling and testing of DNA, by a qualified laboratory.
There are many factors that affect how long it may take to get your results. Keep in mind, the process involves testing both the petitioner and beneficiary. Therefore, delays due to payments, and not showing up for the collection appointment can elongate the process. Generally, the entire process takes between 2 to 4 days, depending on each step in the process.
No, the mother’s participation is not required, but is encouraged. Since one half of the child’s DNA is contributed by the mother, the laboratory can compare her DNA to the child’s, to determine her genetic contribution. The DNA remaining must then match the alleged father, for him to be included as the father. Also, the probability of paternity is statistically higher when the mother participates in the test. However, a high probability of paternity can still be obtained without the mother’s DNA.
There is no minimum age requirement for the child ( Paternity Testing is often done shortly after birth). The samples are collected by rubbing a soft swab inside of the cheek. Therefore, it is painless, non-invasive, and simple to collect DNA.
