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.

Establishing paternity in Gilbert, Arizona
For a mother to receive child support, paternity must be established first. The husband is automatically considered to be the legal father for married people. If the couple is not married, they can establish paternity in the hospital after the child’s birth by signing an Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP). The DCSS (Division of Child Support Services) has a Hospital Paternity Program that collaborates with the Arizona Bureau of Vital Records to prove paternity.
Parents can also file the AOP to the court. If either of them is not cooperative, they may be referred to the Assistant Attorney General’s Office for a court hearing, where a DNA test will be necessary to establish paternity.
DNA test unlocks Arizona’s family history
An Arizona man named Whit unlocked a family secret by total accident using a DNA test. His father was adopted, so Whit didn’t have much information about this side of the family. His father did not want to risk upsetting his adoptive family by seeking more information about his biological family, so for years Whit and his mother were curious about his background.
Once Whit’s parents divorced, his mom and wife grew more curious about his ethnicity over the years. His mother surprised him with a DNA test, which his wife fully supported. Whit submitted a DNA specimen to satisfy their curiosity. He was unfamiliar with the DNA testing process and did not realize that he may find family members by submitting the specimen.
So, he took the genetic test and the DNA test results came back. He could not believe his eyes. The DNA test indicated that he might have a first cousin. At first, this did not make sense because his mother, who also did a DNA test, had siblings without kids. Upon further investigation, Whit realized he may have just discovered his father’s brother.
He was unsure if his dad would like to know, so he reached out to his stepmother. She confirmed that Whit’s father would be interested in a possible biological brother, so Whit got in touch with this man. The man stated that he was probably Whit’s father’s brother. These events unwound in only a couple of hours, and Whit was brought to tears with his parents. After the brothers met and started digging deeper into their histories, they even discovered another brother! The discovery has completely changed their lives.
