DNA Test – East Palatka, Florida
Types of DNA Tests at our East Palatka, Florida clinics:

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

East Palatka DNA Testing Information
In cases where the father of a child is in question, genetic (DNA) testing establishes paternity. According to Michael Hines, an attorney serving East Palatka, “If the DNA testing proves the alleged father is indeed the biological father, the Department of Revenue will issue an Administrative Order of Paternity and notify the Florida Office of Vital Statistics to add the father’s name to the birth certificate. Although the administrative order is not an order issued by a judge, it is still a legally enforceable order.” This method of establishing paternity may be faster and less costly than going to court.
