Why Contact Us?

To establish paternity

From child support to custody and visitation rights, it is important to identify the biological relationship between the man and child in question. In order to satisfy a court of law, a legal DNA paternity test will need to be performed.

To establish rights to an inheritance

Children of a deceased parent can file a claim to an inheritance but it may be disputed by other family members. Having a legal DNA paternity test completed will clear up any doubts and ensure those who are entitled to an inheritance are treated fairly in the case.

To identify “biological” parent

It is common for children who are raised by adopted parents or conceived through donor conception to have a desire to identify their “birth” mother and/or father. We help you find your genetic line.

To confirm sibling relationships

When 2 or more people believe that they may be siblings, a DNA paternity test on each sibling will determine if they indeed share a common father; however, this will not tell them who the father is.

To obtain Social Security & Life Insurance Benefits

When a father is deceased and legal paternity has not been established or paternity is being questioned, Social Security and life insurance claims may require proof of paternity. In these type of cases, a medical examiner would be court ordered to obtain a DNA sample.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are DNA samples collected?

For most paternity tests, the samples used by the laboratory as the source of DNA are called buccal swabs. These are epithelial cells collected by rubbing the inside of the cheek of the mouth with sterile cotton-type swabs. Collection of buccal swab samples is non-invasive, completely painless, and can be performed as early as the day of birth. Other types of samples—such as blood, semen, nail clippings, hair follicles, and prenatal samples—may also be used, but these are only recommended in special circumstances where cheek swabs cannot be obtained. The results of a paternity test will be exactly the same for tests performed using buccal swabs or blood (or other samples) because the DNA found in our cheek cells is the same as the DNA found in all of the other cells in our body.

What does a DNA paternity test reveal about you?

Does a DNA paternity test reveal other relevant information about your genetic makeup or predisposition to medical illnesses? Absolutely not. The genetic tests that are performed in a DNA paternity test do not provide any information about a person that is medically relevant. On the contrary, the DNA tests used for paternity evaluations are only screened for this purpose and otherwise consist of DNA sequences that have no known function.

What types of samples can be tested?

For most DNA paternity tests and DNA family relationship tests, buccal swabs—cotton swabs on which epithelial cells lining the inside of the cheek of the mouth are collected—are the sample of choice. Collection of cheek swab samples is non-invasive, completely painless, and can be performed as early as the day of birth. DNA tests performed using cheek swab samples have the same accuracy as DNA tests performed using blood samples, because the cells in our cheek contain the same DNA as the cells in our blood (or any other cells in our body). If stored properly, cheek swab samples are stable indefinitely. In some circumstances, however, testing of other types of samples can also be performed if necessary:

  • Blood — Preserved liquid blood in a vial or dried blood on a cloth
  • Ear swabs — Cotton swabs of the inside of the ear
  • Semen — Preserved in a vial or dried on a cloth
  • Fingernail clippings — Five or more fingernail and/or toenail clippings is optimal
  • Hair with roots — Ten or more hairs with good, visible roots is optimal. (Note: Cut hair will not work.)
  • Prenatal samples — Both invasive (amniotic fluid, CVS) and non-invasive (blood) options exist
  • Postmortem samples — Blood, tissue, bone, teeth, etc.
  • Household items — Cigarette butts, toothbrushes, stained garments, etc.
  • Buccal (cheek) swabs — Cotton swabs of the inside the cheeks of the mouth
