Bloomington IN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bloomington, Indiana 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.

Our Bloomington DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Bloomington, Indiana - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Bloomington, IN

All parents from Bloomington, Indiana, who are not married but wish to establish paternity can do so by signing an Affidavit of Parentage. The document can be signed at the hospital within 72 hours after the child is born, or later at the local health department. If either of the parents changes their mind after signing the Affidavit of Parentage, they have sixty days to challenge it and ask for paternity testing. After sixty days have passed, paternity can be difficult to challenge. If a married couple has a baby, on the other hand, the husband is automatically presumed to be the father, and no further steps are usually required.

Another way of establishing paternity is getting a court order, which is usually done when parents disagree or one party refuses to cooperate. Both parents go to court, and the judge will usually ask the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test. Usually, the test is done with a cheek swab. The samples are then taken to the laboratories, and the paternity test results are returned to the judge. After the judge has established paternity, parents can ask the court to establish child support, custody, or visitation hours if necessary.

DNA test reunited Indiana sisters after 40 years

Kristy from Indiana always knew she was adopted. She took a DNA test in search of her biological mother, hoping at least to get a picture of her. When the DNA test led her to her sister instead, she was amazed! Although Kristy experienced some disappointment in the time she lost with her sister, she was happy to have discovered the sibling she never knew existed. Today, they live with only nine hours of driving between them and visit each other at least three or four times a year.
