Quick, Efficient Zygosity Test
We Live in a rural area and the Lab Corp had never done the Twin Zygosity test for Fraternal Identical twin question. Some confusion as to if we went to the right lab or not. A phone call was made at the lab we went to (640 W. Washington St, Carson City Nv.) and the paperwork needed was quickly faxed to the lab we were at and the Zygosity test was done there.Thank you,Carolyn Ann

DNA Test - Carson City, Nevada

Carson City NV DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Carson City, Nevada 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 Carson City DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Establishing paternity in Carson City, NV

In Carson City, Nevada, for children born to unmarried parents, establishing paternity is a significant step that can provide benefits for the parents and child. Paternity can be established in two primary ways:

  1. Court. A judge can declare a man as the legal father during a court hearing or through a default order.
  2. Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity. This is a more straightforward route where both parents sign an agreement and file it with the Office of Vital Records. It's the preferred option for parents who are confident about the father's identity. This form is a legally binding document, so it's important that both parties are sure before signing.

Health Street offers DNA testing services in Carson City, NV, for those seeking clarity on paternity. Our tests are non-invasive, painless, and quick using a simple cheek swab.

Carson City, Nevada: Benefits of establishing paternity

Establishing paternity can provide several advantages for the child and both parents.

For the child, legal paternity can help develop a sense of belonging and ensure emotional and financial support from both parents. The child can become eligible for benefits like inheritance rights, access to health and life insurance, and more.
For the mother, establishing legal paternity gives her the right to pursue child support, and the opportunity for shared custody or visitation arrangements with the father.
For the father, it can give him the right to be involved in the child's life, including decision-making in areas like healthcare, education, and religious upbringing. In cases of adoption, the father must be informed if paternity is legally established.

Establishing paternity in Carson City can benefit all parties involved. Most importantly, it can help ensure that the child's needs are met and give a better opportunity for a stable, healthy upbringing. Health Street's DNA tests offer a reliable and straightforward solution to establish paternity, providing peace of mind and legal certainty for families in Carson City.
