By use of simple genetic principles, our staff of scientists will analyze cheek swab samples from a child and the questioned parent to determine the likelihood of a parental relationship. While testing the mother is not absolutely necessary, in cases of questioned paternity, it can be helpful and is strongly recommended. Through the examination of well characterized genetic traits, a likelihood of the supposed relationship can be calculated. Various types of legal paternity tests are available depending on the circumstances of the parties. Any of these testing methods may be useful for immigration, estate inheritance or similar circumstances. Our client support staff will be able to assist you in determining your best option.
We do not accept samples from third-party collectors. Please call to make arrangements to have your sample collected.
