DNA Test - Concord, North Carolina

Concord NC DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Concord, North Carolina clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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

Concord, North Carolina - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Concord, NC

Unwed parents can establish paternity voluntarily or involuntarily. If there are zero doubts about paternity, they can sign the Affidavit of Parentage right after the baby is born. In Concord, North Carolina, parents can sign this document at the hospital, and the hospital staff can usually help them with the process. Filing these documents with Vital Records is necessary so both parents' names can be added to the child's birth certificate.

Sometimes, parents are unsure or disagree about paternity. In those cases, many parents choose to get the court involved. Establishing paternity through court often involves a DNA test. A simple cheek swab is collected from the alleged father and the child. Afterward, the laboratory tests the samples and sends the results to the court. If the results come back positive, the judge may consider them to establish child support, custody, or visitation hours.

DNA test helps reunite long-lost sisters from North Carolina

Lisa and Amanda were both adopted as children. Lisa was taken to the United States from England and now lives in North Carolina. She wanted to learn more about her medical history, and had been searching for her family her whole life. Lisa's godmother from England helped her search, and after Lisa took a DNA test, they found Lisa's nephew—Amanda's son.

Amanda's son immediately alerted his mother of the news, and the two sisters started to talk. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they could not meet in person for two years but finally spent Thanksgiving together in 2022. Lisa admitted she has always wished for a sister, and she created this image of her in her head. Now that she had finally found her, she was so much more than she could have ever dreamed. Both of them were overjoyed to finally see each other.
