Should you be unable to collect oral swabs for the participants alternative samples, such as hair or semen, can be used. A complete list of alternative samples that we accept is available on our discreet DNA sample list page.
Note: We can only guarantee standard result turnaround time when testing takes place solely using oral swab samples. Using a discreet sample for your test may lead to an increase in turnaround time.
Our home paternity test can be performed without the sample of the mother although we recommend the inclusion of the mother’s sample when available. In cases where the mother’s samples are included, the result will provide a probability of paternity of 99.999%+. When the test is motherless, the percentage for inclusion is just slightly lower and will normally be 99.9+%. Both the test with mother or motherless provides the necessary accuracy to resolve any doubts.
Please note that the home paternity test cannot be used for legal purposes since the sample collection is not witnessed and verified by a neutral third party.
How does a paternity test work?
The scientists in our partnered laboratories analyse 21 loci on your DNA to conclude the paternity test. A locus is a location on the DNA molecule. They compare the 21 loci between the alleged father and child and, where available, the mother. If the alleged father is the child’s true biological father, then they will share the same genetic markers. If there are loci which do not match then the result will be exclusion.
