Many people are looking for peace of mind when they take a paternity test, and for that we have our Peace of Mind paternity DNA test.
If you need a Legal Paternity DNA test where the results can be submitted in a court proceeding, we can provide that too.
There are also plenty of other reasons why you might wish to establish parentage, and we have a range of tests to cater for those.
HOW DO THE TESTS WORK?
All children inherit genetic material called DNA from both their biological parents. This is present throughout the body – in identical form.
During testing, we first compare the child’s DNA to the mother’s DNA. Any matching characteristics are put to one side, leaving the characteristics that were inherited from the father.
We then compare those characteristics with a DNA sample from the father. If there are no inherited characteristics, then whoever provided the sample is excluded. If there’s a match, we then calculate the probability that the man is the biological father.
EXPLANATION OF DATA AND ACCURACY OF RESULTS
DNA testing is currently the most advanced and accurate technology to determine parentage. A standard DNA paternity test generates conclusive results to prove the father-child relationship.
To determine paternity, the alleged father, the child, and (if desired) the mother participate in the DNA test. Mother’s participation is optional although her participation helps to exclude half of the child’s DNA fingerprint inherited from her, making the data analysis easier. However, a DNA paternity test without the mother’s participation is equally accurate and conclusive.
If the genetic profile between the alleged father and the child does not match, then it is 100% certain that the alleged father is not the biological father. If the profiles match, there is a 99.99% certainty that the alleged father is the biological father.
