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 Casper DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Facts about DNA Testing in Casper WY
Casper, WY Named Top Small City in the West to Raise a Family
With a population of just over 50,000 people, Casper is a small town in central Wyoming with a big reputation. Casper is the state’s second biggest city by population and was recognized by Forbes as one of the top ten places to raise a family in the country and the best in the West in 2010. Median salaries are near the national average at just over $60,000, but families benefit from the lower-than-average housing costs found in this picturesque mountain town.
Historically, Casper began as a regional hub for cowboys and homesteaders on the Oregon Trail and other paths leading west. By the end of the 19th century, crude oil was discovered just north of the town and a refinery was quickly built. The economy of Casper has been dominated by the petroleum industry ever since. Today, Casper has a workforce that includes thousands of Mining, Quarrying, and Oil & Gas Extraction specialists. The largest group of Casper residents are employed in the Healthcare & Social Assistance sector.
Casper Man Reunites with Biological Family after Decades-long Search
Casper native Mark Sellers finally ended a decades-long search for his biological family after taking a DNA test that connected him to a cousin in 2019. Sellers was adopted as a baby into a loving family who raised him in Casper and never tried to hide his unique past. Although Sellers had been looking for his biological parents for years, he always ran into dead ends. On his birth certificate, for example, he discovered that his mother’s name was written incorrectly. This made searching for her all but impossible.
With the growing popularity of consumer DNA ancestry testing kits, Sellers finally decided to give this new option a chance to help him in his search. He immediately matched DNA family profiles with a cousin, whom he contacted. The cousin turned out to be his nephew, who knew exactly who he was. In fact, his nephew told him that Sellers’ half-sister (the nephew’s mother) had been actively searching for him for almost thirty years.
Sellers’ half-sister, Elizabeth Taylor, had learned about his existence from their father decades ago and had searched court records, hired investigators, and more to find him ever since. After learning about each other, Sellers and Taylor along with each of their families quickly became close.
