DNA Testing Without the Father
A grandparentage test is often one of the better relationship tests to perform
to determine paternity of  a child.  The best testing scenario is a test which
includes the mother, child and both of the alleged father’s parents (the child's
paternal grandmother and grandfather).  By including both of the alleged
father’s parents, the alleged father’s DNA profile can be reconstructed.  
Comparing the alleged father’s reconstructed profile against the child’s DNA,
can allow this testing scenario to give results as accurate as a paternity test.

Each time a person is removed from the test, such as a grandparent or
mother, the strength of the genetic evidence decreases, therefore testing
all 4 individuals is the best testing option.

The fee for this test is based on the number of individuals tested.  
Results are available in 3 business days.

DNA Case Managers can walk you through each test and help you pick the test
that will give you the best results.  Prefer not to call?  Visit our

An avuncular test involves testing the child’s paternal aunt or uncle (the
alleged father’s sister or brother).  Including the mother in this test is strongly
recommended as it strengthens the genetic evidence.   Generally, this test
will not give results as strong as a grandparentage
test, but it is still a good option if the only people available for testing are the
alleged father's siblings.

The fee for this test is based on the number of individuals tested.

A siblingship test is useful for determining if individuals are full brother/sisters,
half brothers/sisters or unrelated.  Whenever the mother(s) is/are known, it is
strongly recommended that they be included in the test.  Including the mother(s)
in the test can increase the results ten-fold, where you might see a probability of
98% instead of only 83%.

Our DNA Case Managers can help you determine which siblingship test is right
for you.

The fee for this test is based on the number of individuals tested.

Approximately one in every fifty Americans is a twin, two thirds of which are
fraternal and one third identical.  Identical twins are formed when one egg is
fertilized by a single sperm cell and then divides within the first few days of
pregnancy. If division of the egg occurs after 8 days, this can result in conjoined
twins, also known as Siamese twins.  Twins produced by this process are
referred to as identical since their DNA sequence is identical.   While the twins
are identical genetically, this often does not apply to the actual physical or
behavioral traits. Generally their traits are similar, however they can differ.  
Fraternal twins are formed when two eggs are independently fertilized by two
sperm cells. Fraternal twins do not have identical DNA but will have half of their
DNA in common, just like siblings of the same parents that are born at different
times. Fraternal twins can either be of the same sex or different sex.  
If the father is deceased or simply unavailable for testing, a grandparentage test, avuncular test or siblingship test can
be performed. Call Us Toll Free at 1-877-434-0292 to place an order

The occurrence of fraternal twins varies substantially in frequency over the world.  They are common in the pregnancies of
older women, especially common in Africans, and relatively rare among those of Asian heritage.  Twin classification done
at delivery often results in misidentification.  For example, approximately 25-33% of
identical twins have two sets of
chorionic membranes.  Unless a DNA or other blood test was performed, it is difficult to accurately determine if twins are
fraternal or identical.

The fee for this test includes 2 individuals.  Results are available in 2 business days.  
DNA testing can be used to confirm the biological relationship between a
mother and child.  The testing follows the same principles as in paternity
testing.  This test is often useful in cases were a child has been separated by
adoption or there is a concern that the baby was switched at birth.  

The fee for this test includes the mother and a single child.  Results are
available in 2 business days.
