DNA Testing Options

Non-Invasive Prenatal

We are focused on developing non-invasive prenatal diagnostic tests based on fetal DNA present in maternal blood. As early as 5 weeks gestation, testing involves a blood sample from pregnant mother, swab sample from alleged father.

Grand-Parentage Testing

Grand-Parentage testing is used when the sample for the alleged father cannot be obtained. The child is then compared to the alleged father's parents (the child's paternal grandmother and/or grandfather). Testing can be performed between the child and one grandparent, although we recommend providing samples from both the grandmother and the grandfather if available. If only one grandparent is available for testing, we would then advise providing a sample from the available grandparent and the child's mother to improve the statistics and limit the chance of obtaining inconclusive results.

Genetic Profile

A Personal Profile is your own unique DNA profile composed of 23 markers. DNA Solutions stores this profile in our own database, allowing you the opportunity use this profile later for relationship or identification comparisons. DNA Profiles can also be personalized gift to provide to family members.

Paternity Testing

Paternity testing is the comparison of a child to an alleged father to determine the probability of a biological relationship. Although not required, the mother's sample is strongly recommended to help improve statistics and to eliminate the chance of fraud. Samples are obtained by using a buccal swab and swabbing the inside of the cheek for approximately 30 seconds.

Siblingship Testing

Siblingship testing is used when the sample for the alleged father or mother cannot be obtained. The testing is performed between alleged siblings to determine biological relationship. There are two siblingship tests: full vs half and half vs unrelated. Testing can be performed between the siblings only, although we recommend providing a mother's sample with the siblings to improve the statistics and limit the chance of obtaining inconclusive results.

Full v. Half –

The siblings being compared share the same mother but are unsure of the father.

Half v. Unrelated –

The siblings being compared know they have different mothers but believe they might share the same father.

Immigration Testing

DNA testing is requested by a U.S. Embassy or United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office when they cannot prove a clear biological relationship with prior submitted documentation. DNA Testing is the most accurate way to prove biological relationship.

Maternity Testing

Maternity testing is the comparison of a child to an alleged mother to determine the probability of biological relationships. Samples are obtained by using a buccal swab and swabbing the inside of the cheek for approximately 30 seconds.

Avuncular Testing

Avuncular testing is used when the sample for the alleged father cannot be obtained. The child is then compared to the alleged father's siblings (the child's alleged aunt or uncle). Testing can be performed between just the child and one of aunts/uncles, although we recommend providing a sample for the mother to improve the statistics and limit the chance of obtaining inconclusive results.
