Paternity Test (Trio): A standard paternity test, called a trio, involves the child, mother and alleged father. The mother’s participation is always encouraged in a paternity test.

Paternity Test (Motherless):: Because DNA testing is so powerful, paternity can be determined even when the mother is unwilling or unavailable to be tested.

Paternity Test with Related Alleged Fathers:If two alleged fathers are closely related (full brothers, half brothers, or father/son), their genetic structure can be similar, and they might share the same DNA markers commonly used in a DNA paternity test. Both could test positive as the child’s biological father.

NEW Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test: After the 12th week of pregnancy - term, paternity can be determined with a simple blood draw from the mother and the alleged father. Advanced technology methods are used for DNA detection to ultimately produce a blueprint that is unique to the mother, the fetus and the alleged father. Blueprint comparisons determine accurate paternity results of 99.9%.

Grandparentage Test: A grandparentage test is performed to determine a child’s relationship to the alleged father’s family when the alleged father is unavailable or unwilling and no post-mortem sample is available.

Siblingship Test: There are two types of siblingship tests: full siblingship and half siblingship. A siblingship test provides the likelihood of genetic relationship between two possible siblings, specifically when no other relatives are available for study. Please note that a grandparentage or reconstruction test is more definitive than a siblingship test, especially if the mother is not involved.

Twin Zygosity Test: A twin zygosity test is a DNA test that definitively shows whether twins are identical or fraternal. When twins are born, the physician usually is able to tell whether they are identical or fraternal by examining the placenta.

Maternity Test: A maternity test is performed to confirm the biological relationship between a mother and child—for example, in immigration cases, adoption, and hospital nurseries.

Post-Mortem Viability Test: It is possible to perform DNA testing on deceased individuals using their stored samples. The post-mortem viability test is performed on a sample from a deceased individual to determine if the sample yields sufficient viable DNA to proceed with further testing. The fee for the viability test is separate from the paternity test fee.

Genetic Reconstruction: Genetic reconstruction is used to test the relationship between a child and biological relatives of the alleged father, if he is deceased or unavailable for testing.

Y-STR Test: The Y-STR paternal lineage test is used to determine whether two or more males are related through their fathers (through the paternal/male line).

Avuncular Test: An avuncular test is performed to determine if two individuals are related to each other as aunt–nephew (or niece) or as uncle–nephew (or niece).

DNA Banking and Profiling: Our DNA banking and profiling services allow individuals to prepare for the future by preserving their genetic information.
