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.

Local Area Info: Nichols, Iowa

The original name of the site of the current town was Railroad Addition. The town was later referred to as Nichols Station in reference to the previous holder of the town's site. Nichols was named by the early settler Benjamin F. Nichols in honor of his father, Samuel Nichols, who was instrumental in bringing the railroad to the area. Samuel Nichols was a heavy investor in the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern Railroad Company as well as owner of large landholdings. Samuel Nichols had given the rail company the right of way to construct the rail line across his land, as well as to establish a depot at the current site of Nichols.

Nichols was established in the early 1870s in an area of Section 15 of Pike Township known locally as Elephant Swamp. The community was intended as a rail town for the shipment of agriculture products and furs to distant markets, and had been constructed on land donated to the rail company by Samuel and Benjamin Nichols with the intention of establishing a rail depot. The lots for the future community were surveyed by county surveyor George Bumgardner in June, 1871. Two rail lines would eventually run through the town the Muscatine & Western Railroad and the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern Railroad which were both branches of the Rock Island system. The first rail line and rail depot was constructed in the early 1870s. Dr. S. H. Smith constructed the first building on the future site of Nichols in 1871, which Mr Smith used as both a drug store and as a home. Construction on the Muscatine & Western Railroad reached the site in 1873, and the rail company laid out an addition to the town, calling it Railroad Addition. At first many of the buildings and homes in the community were log cabins, which were then replaced by more permanent brick buildings. Benjamin Nichols established the first post office in 1870 and served as the first postmaster. The first school was built in 1872. In the winter of 1873-1874 a Christian church was organized with services being held in schoolhouses until the construction of the church in 1874, with services being conducted by Rev. John Powell. The German Evangelical Protestant Church was organized in 1874 by Rev. K. F. Obermann. The Catholic church Church of St. Mary - was built in 1874 with Father Nicholas Dugan serving as its first pastor. A Methodist church was organized in 1875 by J. A. Bolton. The town soon grew with the addition of several banks, an opera house, and a town hall that had been constructed in 1897. The early economy of the community centered on the two rail lines that ran through the community as well as the buying and shipping of furs as well as agriculture. The Foley and Brugman Brothers operated two large grain elevators which held 15,000 bushels each. Cattle and hogs were also shipped out to markets through the rail lines.

Nichols is located at 4128?45?N 9118?30?W? / ?41.47917N 91.30833W? / 41.47917; -91.30833 (41.479113, -91.308291) in section 15 of Pike Township, situated in the western edge of Iowas Muscatine County. The area is a mix of prairie and rich bottom land. Jordan Creek flows just southeast of the community and flows into Wapsinonoc Creek, a tributary of the Cedar River.
