Discover How DNA Paternity Testing Works

Learn How DNA Paternity Testing Works!


When performing DNA testing one question that always arises is - what is DNA?

DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid. DNA is made up of four basic units, A (adenine), C (cytosine), G (guanine), and T (thymine). These small molecules are the building blocks of life.

A, T, C, and G fit together in such a way as to make each person unique. With the exception of identical twins, no two people have the exact same genetic code.


How do DNA paternity tests usually work?

The DNA paternity testing is based upon the principals of inheritance. When two people produce a child, the child gets half of his DNA from his mother and half from his father.

DNA paternity testing reveals a control batch of genetic markers from all parties. First, the genetic markers that the child shares with the mother, are located. Then to determine paternity, the child's remaining markers are compared to the alleged father.

If the man is indeed the father, all of the markers that did not match the mother's should match his. If all of the child's remaining markers match the alleged father, evidence is provided that he is the biological father of the child. If they do not match, he is not the biological father of the child.

When the mother is not tested, a larger batch of control markers are revealed from the alleged father and child. If these markers show that the man is contributing half of the genetic makeup of the child, he is given evidence that he is the biological father of the child. If markers are found not to match between the alleged father and child, the man isn't the biological father of the child.


How simple it is to get answers about paternity?

It's really simple because now you can collect specimens at home and send them to the DNA testing center. There are no doctor appointments, no embarrassing questions to answer, and no costly lab fees to collect your samples.

DNA samples collection is painless because doctors can extract DNA from the hair or cheek cells now, instead of the blood.

You deserve the peace of mind!
