Twins testing results
Results of your twin DNA test will be ready in just 3-5 working days from receipt of samples at the laboratory.
Identical twins result when a single sperm cell fertilizes a single ovum and the egg then splits into 2, forming 2 separate embryos which are genetically carbon copies of each other. Non Identical twins result when two ova are fertilized independently by 2 independent sperm cells forming 2 embryos with different genetic makeups.
Our twin DNA test can confirm whether the DNA profiles of the test participants are identical (proving they are identical twins) or whether their DNA profiles are different (proving they are non-identical twins).
Collecting your DNA samples
Our home kit will enable you to collect DNA samples using simple to use oral swabs.
You will then return the swabs for laboratory analysis.
- Because looking at resemblance and the physical characteristics between twins is not always a clear way of knowing if twins are monozygotic or dizygotic.
- Identical twins will have the same blood groups; they can donate blood to each other or even organs.
Pricing of the twins test
The cost of our Twin DNA test for 2 people is €139. Multiple siblings can be added to the test at an extra cost.
Siblings DNA testing
If you are siblings or perhaps non identical twins and wish to know if you share one or both biological parents in common, you can opt for a siblings DNA test. Siblings testing a good alternative to a parentage test (a maternity test or paternity test) and can provide strong results.
