DNA Test - Fort Collins, Colorado

Fort Collins CO DNA Testing Locations

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

Fort Collins, Colorado - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Fort Collins, Colorado

The State of Colorado Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity is a form that parents use to establish paternity. It establishes a legal father but does not establish a child support amount, visiting hours, or custody rights. If parents disagree on such issues, they likely need to go to court to resolve their disputes.

If there is any disagreement about paternity and a court order has been filed, the judge will usually order DNA testing. When the DNA test results have returned, the judge can decide whether to establish the alleged father as a legal father or not.

DNA test brings family together: A man finds his father after 66 years

Bethany did a DNA test to learn more about her medical history, and the result was more exciting for her dad than for her. When the DNA results came, she saw a 30 percent match to a man who was likely her grandfather. Without even trying, she had helped her father finally reunite with his father, who had been looking for him for 66 years.

Her grandfather wanted to talk to Bethany's father, and they discovered that her father had siblings. The grandfather lives in Colorado and wants to meet his son as soon as possible.

Bethany and her dad live in Texas, so they have not met their long-lost family members yet, but are planning on it. Bethany's father can not wait to meet his sisters and father and finally talk in person. So far, they have had plenty of phone conversations discussing everything. They are grateful that curious Beth took a DNA test and connected them after six decades.
