DNA Test - Ardmore, Pennsylvania

Ardmore PA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Ardmore, Pennsylvania locations:

The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
Avuncular DNA Test (aunt/uncle and niece/nephew)

Specimens we can test for DNA

The easiest and most reliable way to obtain a DNA sample for paternity testing is to swab the inner cheeks of the people being tested. These skin cells are known as buccal cells, and they rub off easily onto cotton swabs and remain in place for analysis by our laboratory. Other specimen samples, such as hair follicles, fingernails, and garments that might contain someone's DNA, can also be tested. An Alternative Specimen DNA Test is done by registering online and shipping the specimens to us.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Ardmore DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Local DNA Stories

In 2021 in Ardmore, PA, DNA testing led to the reunion of identical twins. The twins, both born in South Korea, met for the first time on their 36 birthdays after DNA testing led them to each other. At the time of their meeting, one of the twins lived in Ardmore, PA and the other in Florida. Both twins were adopted at birth and did not know of each other's existence. Molly Sinert of Florida said, "My life changed." The other twin, Emily Bushnell of Ardmore, said, "A hole was immediately filled in my heart. Although I have family who loves me and adores me and has been absolutely wonderful, there was always a feeling of disconnection," she said. "Finding out that I had an identical twin sister just made everything so clear. It all makes sense."

Experts Say...

Sheryl R. Rentz is an attorney in Ardmore, PA. She explained the process of using DNA testing to prove paternity. "A person who wants to establish paternity can be either be a mother, a father, or even the child, depending on what a party may want to achieve from the paternity testing," she explained. "In order to establish paternity, DNA testing is most common and can include a SWAB test, DNA Genetic Identity, or a blood test. DNA testing centers are typically affordable and are easy to locate, so paternity matters are usually settled before a trial."

Rentz said there are many reasons to establish paternity. First, establishing paternity gives the child an identity. Having a legal father offers financial support and benefits, such as social security and health insurance. Establishing paternity allows for the child to understand their medical history from both sides of the family. It also allows public assistance for those who qualify.

"Paternity proceedings can be filed by the alleged father, mother, child, or child support division of the state, and paternity testing can, in most states, be ordered by the court," Rentz stated.
