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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.
Legal DNA Tests vs. “Peace of Mind” At-Home Tests
A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Cape Coral DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Cape Coral, Florida – DNA Testing
Establishing paternity in Cape Coral, FL
Establishing paternity can be beneficial for the parents and the child. Once paternity is established, the legal father has been identified and can have the same rights and responsibilities as a mother. Some benefits for the child may include:
In Cape Coral, FL, you can establish paternity voluntarily by signing a Paternity Acknowledgement form in the hospital. Both parents must sign it, and there must be a notary public presence.
The court can also establish paternity. Usually, an alleged father and the child will have to undergo a DNA test to prove paternity. DNA specimens are most often collected with a simple cheek swab. Based on the DNA test results, the judge can decide whether the man is a biological father.
DNA test reunites father and a son in Florida
Andrew had a Vietnamese mother and an American father who met in Saigon, where his father was placed as a soldier. After his tour ended, his father returned to the United States while Andrew’s mother remained in Saigon. Soon, baby Andrew would be born with a heart defect.
In the early years, everybody stared at Andrew because he did not look like his classmates. His peers labeled him as a “leftover” and judged him for his mixed race. Andrew and his mother eventually decided to try to move to America. Fortunately, when he was sixteen, he got a sponsorship from a school in Virginia, so they moved. Virginia’s harsh winters were not the best fit for them, so they continued to Florida to live near family.
Here, Andrew met his current wife and had two kids. He became a cop and closely monitored his heart health. Years later, his doctor decided his worsened condition warranted surgery. Around the same time, his kids gifted him a DNA kit because they knew he always wanted to find his dad. Wary of the upcoming surgery, he submitted his DNA specimen and waited for a match.
Meanwhile, Andrew’s dad had also taken a DNA test. The DNA test matched the father and son, and they soon started to talk on the phone. Finally, they met, and his father even stayed with Andrew for longer to support him through his heart surgery.
