DNA Test – Columbus, Ohio

Columbus OH DNA Testing Locations

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

The DNA Statistics of Columbus

Columbus, Ohio has one of the highest rates of single parent households in the United States. 35 percent of the homes in Columbus where minor children reside have only one parent. Health Street conducted a DNA Survey to learn more about people’s beliefs and feelings about DNA testing. Through this research, it was found that around 41 percent of all of DNA tests in this area were to determine the paternity of a child.

The Stories of Columbus

Quotes from DNA StudyColumbus Residents Said:
“I’m curious about genetics, not just paternity.”

“I don’t want to break the bank just to satisfy my curiosity”

“It would be nice to know where I came from, but the people who raised me are my parents and that’s what matters.”
About this Study: Health Street surveyed Columbus residents about the personal side of DNA testing.

Custody Laws in Columbus

In the state of Ohio, if a mother of a child is unmarried, she automatically is granted full custody. However, once paternity is established through such means as a court admissible paternity test, the father can petition for visitation rights and even custodial rights. An alternative means of establishing paternity is by completing an “acknowledgment of paternity” affidavit. If the mother also signs, it may be recognized by the courts as a voluntary acknowledgment of the biological father. However, if another man contests it, DNA tests are essential to prove which alleged father is actually related. As time goes on, however, once a man begins raising a child and becomes known to him or her as their dad, it becomes far more difficult for another man to step in and claim paternal rights, even if it turns out that he is the biological father.
