DNA Test - Flushing, New York

Flushing NY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Flushing, New York 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

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 Flushing DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Flushing, New York - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Flushing, New York

Unwed parents or parents-to-be in Flushing must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. If both parents agree, an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) can be signed in the hospital when the baby is born. The form is usually available in the medical office, hospital, or clinic where your child is born. An AOP can also be signed anytime after the baby leaves the hospital until the child turns 21.

Paternity can also be established at the court. This often happens when parents disagree about paternity or when they are unsure about who the father is. Establishing paternity through the court usually involves a DNA test. Based on the DNA test results, the judge can determine who the biological father is.

Long-lost sisters reunited by DNA test results

During Christmas time, Eiley took a DNA test. She was adopted as a baby and lived her whole life in Minnesota, but everything changed after taking a DNA test. She matched with her sister Soojee, who lives in New York. Neither of them knew they had a sister, so it was a big surprise. Both girls were adopted as babies from South Korea by two different families in the USA.

It took them 24 years to find each other, but now it feels like it was meant to be. The sisters said they always felt a little bit like outsiders, but now they have each other. Soojee said that all she knew about her genetics was when she saw her son and knew it was her baby boy. She knew he was related to her by blood, and now she is happy to find that she has a biological sister too!

The sisters have made a list of things they want to do and created a bucket list of things they want to experience together. They want to fill the gap from the years they missed with each other growing up.
