Results of our formal DNA tests are guaranteed to be admissible in any U.S. court of law due to the verified "chain of custody" and because the lab processing the DNA sample is AABB accredited!
The chain of custody refers to the various chain of "hands" that the individual sample passes through. A legal chain of custody requires the samples to be collected in the presence of a third neutral party at a lab or hospital facility where all parties are properly identified with photos or photo ID to verify their identity. We have testing options for every sort of situation and legal level.
In a standard DNA paternity test, the tested parties usually include a child, the alleged father, and the mother.
The mother’s participation in the paternity test helps to exclude half of the child’s DNA, leaving the other half for comparison with the alleged father’s DNA.
However, we can perform a paternity test without mother’s participation (called a 'motherless' test). A motherless test may involve additional analysis, which our labs will perform for you without any additional charge.
Results are equally conclusive whether or not the mother participates. Motherless tests are guaranteed to have at least a 99.5% probability of paternity for inclusions and 100% for exclusion.
Why DNA Tests Work
Doing DNA paternity test at our DNA Paternity Center determines whether a man is the biological father of a child.
Because we inherit our DNA (the genetic material) from our biological parents, A DNA paternity test from DNA Paternity Center compares a child’s DNA pattern with that of the alleged father to check for evidence of this inheritance.
This is the ultimate proof of a biological relationship with a 99.99% probability.
The result of a DNA paternity test from our labs will either exclude (the alleged father is not the biological father), or include (the alleged father is considered the biological father) the man in question.
For a standard paternity test, our lab guarantees at least 99.9% probability of paternity for inclusions or 100% certainty of exclusion. Once you have completed a test with us there is no need to go elsewhere.
Maternity DNA testing determines whether a woman could be the biological mother of a child.
Like a DNA paternity test, it compares a child’s DNA pattern with that of the alleged mother to determine how likely it is that the child has inherited the DNA from the alleged mother.
If you need paternity test results that can be used as a legal document (for example, to change the name on the birth certificate or to obtain child support and other benefits), a Legal DNA Test needs to be performed.
Unlike the Home DNA Test, where tested parties collect their own samples at their convenience, the Legal DNA Test follows a Chain of Custody documentation process to ensure that you receive accurate and legally defensible results.

ADOPTION DNA TESTING
If you are dealing with the mountain of challenges that adoption brings, we can help.
Until the day the judge declares you as the 'forever family,' you may become familiar with the emotional roller coaster that is part of this wonderful yet challenging experience of adoption.
More and more adoptive families and their representatives are seeing the benefits of using DNA testing at various times during the adoption process and you can to.
Knowing the biological identity of the child that you are adopting through proper relinquishment can alleviate some of the stress and uncertainty that comes along with this trying process.
Are you suspecting that your spouse is cheating on you?
The DNA paternity test will conclusively determine whether an alleged father is the true biological father of the child. A DNA paternity test can be performed with or without the mother. All 16 genetic loci including the core CODIS loci are tested for every paternity case.
Our laboratory provides results with greater than 99.9% probability of paternity for inclusions and 100% for exclusions. All tests are automatically run twice to ensure 100% accuracy.
The full genetic report is included with every test. The average turnaround time for paternity testing is 3 - 5 working days.
DNA Testing can provide you answers through DNA Infidelity Testing. DNA testing typically provides results that confirm or deny the presence of male and/or female DNA on suspicious items.
Once results are obtained, we can also run powerful DNA comparative analyses to identify the DNA source.
The DNA testing we do is accurate, reliable, and strictly confidential. Get the peace of mind and closure you need today.
PERSONAL DNA CODE
Personal DNA Code, an individual DNA code, is a permanent means of individual identification.
Your Personal DNA Code is a unique code that cannot be duplicated by somebody else, like your finger prints.
Your Personal DNA Code demonstrates your genetic similarity to family members as well as the genetic uniqueness that distinguishes you from the rest of the world.
This is the best way to protect your family. You will receive a DNA report with your DNA profile, so in case of disaster or tragedy, this report could help authority to identify your loved one.
DNA sibling-ship tests determine the statistical probability of whether siblings (brothers and sisters) share the same two parents or not.
The cost of the DNA testing service includes two siblings, but you may add more as needed.
When the issue of sibling-ship is in question, the recommended method to determine whether individuals are true biological siblings is to test their parents.
In situations where the alleged parents are unavailable for testing, a DNA sibling-ship test can be performed to analyze the relationship of biological siblings. Including one common parent greatly increases the accuracy of this type of analysis and is recommended if at all possible.
Prenatal DNA testing allows the mom-to-be to have a paternity DNA test perfomed before the child is born. There are three (3) options available for prenatal DNA testing.
The first option is the non-invasive prenatal paternity test. In a non-invasive Prenatal Paternity Test, fetal DNA circulating in the mother’s blood is detected and analyzed using microarray SNP technology, comparing the markers between the child and alleged father to determine paternity. This test requires a blood draw from the mom-to be and alleged father. Testing can be performed any time starting in the 9th week of pregnancy.
The second and third options are invasive procedures that must be performed by an OB doctor. Paternity testing can be performed by obtaining the child's DNA through either an amniocentesis (Amnio) or CVS (Chorionic Villi) sample. The most common is the amnio. These methods produce accurate paternity results, but do present a risk of miscarriage. It is recommended for the mom-to-be to discuss these options in detail with her doctor.
TWIN ZYGOSITY DNA TESTING
This DNA test determines whether siblings are fraternal or identical twins or siblings.
The cost of the DNA testing service includes two children but you may add more as needed; for instance a third sibling.
Parental samples are optional; if provided, paternity and/or maternity can also be verified.
Y-STR MALE LINEAGE DNA TESTING
The Y-STR male lineage test is used to determine whether two or more males are related through their paternal lineage.
The Y chromosome is passed from father to son and has a relatively infrequent mutation rate, thus it remains the same through many generations.
This test focuses on the Y chromosome and results in a unique Y-STR profile for each male tested.
It is important to note that this test will not differentiate men that are in the same paternal lineage.
DNA ANCESTRY TESTING
Genetic Genealogy allows us to trace the path of our ancestors and find out who they were, where they lived and how they have migrated throughout the world.
