More DNA Testing FAQ

What is paternity?

Paternity means fatherhood. Paternity is established when a paternity testing laboratory uses genetic testing methods / DNA test, to demonstrate to a legal standard, that an alleged father is the biological father. Paternity is disproved when these same methods and standards demonstrate that an alleged father is not the biological father.

What is DNA testing?

DNA testing refers to the process of examining an individual’s DNA markers for the purpose of genetic human identification and for determining the relationship between two people.

How accurate is DNA-Based paternity testing?

The DNA profiling method is an extremely accurate genetic testing method. It can absolutely determine if the man is not the biological father and reliably exclude him. DNA profiling can establish that the alleged father is the child’s biological father with a probability of paternity of 99.99% or higher. Each year many individual clients, child support offices, attorneys, judges, and physicians choose Genetic Profiles as their source for information, guidance and testing services in order to determine paternity.

Are the results admissible in court?

Yes. The laboratory follows a strict chain-of-custody procedure which allows for court/legal admissibility.

Is the Lab accredited? Are the results reliable?

The DNA testing laboratory used by Genetic Profiles is accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks(AABB)for the purpose of performing paternity (parentage) tests. Your paternity test will be processed by highly skilled and trained laboratory technicians. Every test is evaluated by a Ph.D. scientist with several years specializing in DNA genetic testing.

How long does it take to receive results from the paternity test?

It typically takes about 3-4 working days to complete the testing. In cases where the mother’s sample is not included or when an abnormal/difficult sample is used, testing may require more time.

Are the paternity test results confidential?

Yes, The DNA test results are strictly confidential. They are released only to the adult persons who were tested and, as requested, to their authorized agents (e.g. attorneys).

How does DNA paternity testing work?

DNA analysis, which has proven to be a major advance in the field of paternity testing, involves the direct examination of the genetic material that a child inherited from its biological parents. DNA is located throughout the human body and in the same identical form. Thus, DNA in blood is the same as that in skin, cheek lining, muscle, bone, teeth and various other tissues. The DNA of a person is fully established at conception and remains totally constant throughout life. During the paternity testing process, the genetic characteristics of the child are first compared to those of its mother. Those characteristics in the child that cannot be found in the mother have been inherited from the biological father. If the tested man (alleged father) does not have the genetic characteristics necessary to be the biological father of the child, he is excluded. If the tested man’s DNA does contain those genetic characteristics, then the probability that this man is the true biological father is calculated and reported by the laboratory.

What are some of the reasons DNA testing is conducted?

There are many legal and personal reasons that require DNA testing. Some of the more common include:

  • peace of mind
  • family medical concerns
  • child support
  • custody
  • adoption
  • citizenship/immigration
  • inheritance/benefits (social security, insurance, etc.)
  • crime scene analysis (forensic testing)

Can I do anything to alter the results of the test?

No, you can not alter the results of a test. Medication, drugs, alcohol, food, age or lifestyle cannot alter the DNA pattern within an individual.
