Paternity test

Paternity tests

The paternity testing can prove or exclude on the basis of DNA genetic test whether a man is a biological father of a child. How does it work?  First, it is necessary to create the DNA profile of an individual. It is necessary to determine the set of inherited traits that are unique for each individual. By comparison and statistical evaluation of the DNA profiles of a farther and a child it can be proven their family relationship.

Collecting DNA samples is simple and painless – it is done using mouth swabs and the swabs are taken by rubbing the inner cheek. Do not take the swabs from tongue or saliva. For each person two oral swabs using the brushes are to be taken. The swabs can also be collected from a newborn baby.
