DNA Test - Eagan, Minnesota

Eagan MN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Eagan, Minnesota 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 Eagan DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Eagan, Minnesota - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Eagan, MN

In Eagan, Minnesota, there are two main methods for establishing paternity. For unwed parents, the easiest way is to sign the Minnesota Recognition of Parentage form, but it's important for both parents to agree that the man is the biological father. Once signed, the form must be filed with the Minnesota Department of Health to establish legal paternity.

Another option is to seek a court order to establish paternity. This is often chosen when there are doubts or disagreements about paternity. In such cases, the court may require DNA testing, typically done through a painless cheek swab. The DNA test provides reliable results, and if it confirms the alleged father is the biological father, the judge can officially establish paternity.

Health Street offers non-invasive and efficient DNA testing services in Eagan, Minnesota, using a simple cheek swab. These tests are highly accurate, with a 99.9% reliability rate, assisting parents in establishing paternity.
