Clinic Hours and Information
Types of DNA Tests at our Clifton NJ clinics:
There are several types of DNA tests that we can perform to validate close family relationships. 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.
In addition to paternity, we also offer:
- ⇾ 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)
Accuracy of DNA Tests
Health Street’s 21 marker DNA relationship testing is the state of the art. Our legal paternity test results are statistically conclusive at the rate of 99.9% or greater. Other DNA tests, such as sibling or avuncular studies, can sometimes come back with a result of less than 95% certainty. This is normal, especially if only 2 parties participate in the test. Adding an additional close relative to the test helps us learn more about the family’s DNA composition and typically leads to a more conclusive result.
Specimens we can test for DNA
The easiest and most reliable way to obtain genetic material for a paternity test is to take a swab of the inner cheeks of the parties. The skin cells of the inner cheek, known as buccal cells, rub off easily onto cotton swabs and remain in place for shipment to our laboratory. Legal DNA Tests at our Clifton clinics are done by cheek swab.
Other specimens, such as hair, fingernails, and garments that might contain someone’s DNA, can also be tested. These tests are done by registering online and shipping the specimen to our lab for testing. We’ll attempt to extract the DNA and compare it to a cheek swab of the other party.
Legal DNA Tests vs. “Peace of Mind” At-Home Tests
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, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Clifton DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.
The results of our legal DNA tests can be used for any legal purpose:
- ✓ to change the name on a birth certificate
- ✓ to petition for child support
- ✓ to petition for survivor benefits
- ✓ to alter inheritance procedures or wills
Home tests offer more flexibility:
Home DNA tests are specimens containing DNA (or possible DNA) that are shipped to us for analysis. The results of these home tests cannot be used in court (since there is no way to prove whose specimens were actually sent). However, the tests are just as accurate and can provide peace of mind. At-home DNA tests also offer a lot more flexibility.
In addition to commonly mailed in DNA specimens like hair follicles, we can also extract DNA from other bodily fluids. We can even try and lift the DNA left on items like clothing, a toothbrush, or a straw. If we can get the DNA from the alternative item, we can then compare it to another person to see if they are related. Some examples include:
- ⇾ Q-tips
- ⇾ Stained garments
- ⇾ Mucus and other bodily fluids
- ⇾ Soda cans
- ⇾ Chewing gum
How to schedule a DNA Test in Clifton NJ
Scheduling a DNA test at one of our Clifton clinics is simple and fast, and we often have appointments available in the same week, though it’s always helpful to schedule in advance to make sure you get the time you want. We have clinics in Clifton, plus many more throughout New Jersey and across the nation. Not every one of our clinics performs DNA tests. During registration, we’ll show you the nearest locations so you can choose the one that’s most convenient. You’ll pick the times and days that you prefer.
You can set up separate appointments for each of the people being tested, either at the same location or at different locations. You’ll get an email and text message with your appointment information. There is no fee if you need to change the time or location of a DNA test appointment at any time.
How long it takes to get results of a DNA test
Paternity tests conducted at one of our Clifton facilities typically take about a week to come back. Other relationship studies, such as sibling studies, can take a few days longer to come back. When the results are ready, you are notified immediately via email. Then, the hard copies of the paperwork are sent afterward via regular mail.
The DNA test appointment – what to expect and what to bring
The appointment itself only takes about 15 minutes. The specimen collection process is a simple and painless cheek swab. No needles are used. When you’re being tested at our Clifton clinic, you’ll be asked to provide fingerprints and to show photo identification. We’ll also take pictures of the people being tested so that the final report will include legal assurances of who was actually tested.
For infants, hospital discharge papers qualify as identification. Otherwise, a birth certificate or social security card can be used as ID for a child. No other preparations are required for this appointment.
Does the mother need to be present at a paternity test?
If a man is considered the legal father of a child, then the mother does not have to be present or give consent for a paternity test. If he is not considered the father, then he can’t sign for the child, so in that case, the mother does need to be there. If neither parent is available, other legal guardians can bring the child if they have the right to make medical decisions on the child’s behalf.
DNA testing if one party is not in Clifton
The 2 parties testing (for example: father and child) do not have to be tested at the same time or even at the same location. We have many clinics across New Jersey as well as nationwide, so we can test one party in Clifton and the other party anywhere else in the USA. The specimens are then matched up in the lab for analysis.
Health Street works strictly with AABB Certified labs for DNA testing. All specimens that are collected in Clifton or elsewhere are shipped securely from our clinics to a nationally certified laboratory for professional DNA testing and analysis.
