DNA Test - Bryan, Texas

Bryan TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bryan, Texas 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

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. Accurate results for DNA paternity testing with 99.99% confidence or greater take about a week.

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

Bryan, Texas - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Bryan, TX

Unwed parents in Bryan, Texas, have two options for establishing paternity, and it is important to take action to protect the child's legal rights. If the parents agree on paternity and have no doubts, they can sign the Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) immediately after the baby is born or later. This document carries the same legal weight as a court order and should only be signed if parents agree about paternity.

In situations where parents are uncooperative or disagree about paternity, court action may be necessary. The judge typically orders a DNA test for the alleged father and child to provide proof of their biological relationship. After the judge receives the DNA test results, paternity can be established. From there, the court can determine custody, visitation, and child support arrangements. It's crucial to work with a trusted provider like Health Street to ensure accurate and reliable DNA test results. Not every DNA test will stand up in a court of law.

Stolen at birth: Texas man finally meets his biological family

After 38 years, Tyler finally learned the truth about his identity—he was kidnapped as a baby from a mother who wanted him. A Chilean nonprofit organization contacted him, stating that he had been stolen and illegally given up for adoption. The gravity of the situation was confirmed after a DNA test was conducted, which verified that Tyler was indeed the victim of a kidnapping.

With this new knowledge, Tyler ventured back to his birth country to meet his biological mother and three sisters. This emotional reunion was a long time coming for Tyler, who had no idea that he had a biological family. Tyler's adoption story was not what he was always led to believe. He had been led to believe that his birth mother had given him up because she could not care for him. In reality, Tyler's mother was told he died because he was born prematurely, and she was not shown his body.
