Types of DNA Tests at our Greensboro NC 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:
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 Greensboro DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

DNA Tests Help Greensboro Residents Learn about their Pasts
Multiple Greensboro residents made the local news in 2019 after reuniting with long-lost loved ones by taking a home DNA test:
John Sullivan of Piedmont Triad was able to locate and eventually meet his second cousin, the offspring of his grandmother's sister, who lost contact with the family at the turn of the 20th century.
Cindy Cline discovered she had a sister through a DNA test, decades after being adopted as a baby. Cline is related to local celebrity Chad Tucker of Greensboro's FOX8 news channel.
