DNA Paternity Test
Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, is the genetic material you inherit from your mother and father. Paternity refers to fatherhood. A DNA paternity test uses DNA, usually taken from a cheek swab, to determine whether a man is the child’s biological father.
A DNA paternity test is nearly 100% accurate at determining whether a man is another person’s biological father. DNA tests can use cheek swabs or blood tests. You must have the test done in a medical setting if you need results for legal reasons.
How is a DNA paternity test performed?
There are two equally accurate ways to test for paternity:
Blood tests: The potential father and child give blood samples at a medical office. The facility sends the samples to a lab for analysis.
Cheek swabs: The potential father and child swab the inside of their cheeks for buccal (cheek) cells. You mail the cotton swab applicators to a designated lab. If swabbing takes place in a medical setting, the office sends the samples to a lab.
What type of samples are needed to do a paternity DNA test?
DNA is present in most of our body’s cells. A small sample for testing can be obtained from several bodily sources. The cells that are most commonly tested are derived from the blood or inside the cheek of the mouth (called buccal cells).
- Standard Biological DNA Samples:
- Mouth Flocked Swab (We don’t use a cotton swab)
