Our DNA profiling service allows individuals to obtain a record of their genetic profile—a unique combination of 16 markers found in their DNA that serves as a permanent genetic ID. Organizations and private individuals choose to obtain records of their DNA profiles in case identification is ever needed.

DNA paternity testing determines the biological father of a child. A DNA paternity test compares a child’s DNA pattern with that of an Alleged Father to determine if there is a match. When performed correctly in an experienced laboratory, it’s the most definitive proof of a biological relationship.
Basic Third Party Test
A Basic (Third Party Case) should be set up when a client has identified just one possible Alleged Father and one Child and one Mother that they want to verify paternity with. The collection will require one sample from the Alleged Father, the Child, and the Mother.
In a maternity test, the child, mother, and alleged father are tested. The mother’s participation in the maternity test helps to exclude half of the child’s DNA, leaving the rest for comparison with the alleged father. If the mother is not available, we can perform a motherless test, which involves additional analysis.
Multiple Children or Alleged Fathers
For Paternity Tests: The Multiple Party Case should be used if more than one Child or more than one Alleged Father needs to be tested in the case. Select the number of parties involved when ordering this case. Price is per additional individual tested.
Twin Zygosity Test
A twin zygosity test is a DNA test that definitively shows whether twins are identical or fraternal.
A siblingship test is a DNA test conducted to determine the likelihood of two individuals sharing one or both parents (i.e., if they are half or full siblings). We encourage the participation of any known parents on both sides, if they are available. Please note that a grandparentage or reconstruction test is more definitive than a siblingship test, especially if the mother is not involved.
Y-STR Paternal Lineage
The Y-STR paternal lineage test is used to determine whether two or more males are related through the paternal/male line. The Y chromosome is passed from father to son relatively unchanged through many generations. Males who are related through their fathers will have the same or similar Y-STR profiles. This test can confirm relationships to long-lost relatives and paternal ancestors.
This test is used to support or disprove a direct paternal connection between 2 or more male participants.
A grand parentage DNA test determines whether a couple could be the biological grandparents of a child. In the test, the child’s DNA profile is compared with the DNA profiles of the biological grandparents. Since a child inherits half of his/her DNA from the mother (maternal side) and half from the father (paternal side), the half contributed by the family member in question should match DNA passed down from the tested grandparents.
In genetic reconstruction, a series of DNA tests are conducted to determine whether or not a child is related to the alleged father’s close relatives. It is an indirect way to determine family relationships when an alleged father is not available for a paternity test. Results of genetic reconstruction may be used as proof in Social Security benefit and other inheritance claims or for tribal enrollment. In the test, the child’s DNA profile is compared with the DNA profiles of at least two of the alleged father’s close relatives. A close relative may be a full sibling or a biological parent. Each individual’s DNA profile is unique, but close relatives will share a significant portion of their DNA profiles because of the hereditary nature of DNA.
