How are paternity testing samples collected? All samples are taken with cheek (buccal) swabs.
Does the child have to be a certain age to have a DNA paternity test? No. There is no minimum age requirement for the child’s portion of the test. Samples are taken with a non-invasive cheek (buccal) swab. What types of parentage testing do you offer? We routinely perform a broad range of paternity and DNA identity tests. Non-Legal Parentage Testing – When testing is for peace of mind and results will not be used in court. Fully Accredited Parentage Testing – When results are needed for legal purposes. Grand Paternity Testing – Called for when the father is unavailable. It is a straightforward paternity test when both of his parents are available for testing and there is no doubt as to his parentage. Twin Zygosity Testing – Available to determine whether twins are identical or fraternal.
