DNA Test - Greenville, North Carolina

Greenville NC DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Greenville, North Carolina 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

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. 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 Greenville DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Greenville, North Carolina - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Greenville, NC

Unwed parents have several options for establishing paternity in Greenville, North Carolina. Parents can sign the affidavit of parentage, but they should only consider this option if both have no doubts about paternity. After this document is signed, it is legally binding and can be very difficult to overturn. However, if parents have no doubts, this is the easiest and quickest option for establishing paternity. They can also do it at the hospital after the baby is born, and the hospital staff can help them with the process.

Another way of establishing paternity is going to court. Many parents choose this if they are unsure about paternity or also want the judge to establish child support, visitation hours, or custody. The court often orders the alleged father and the child to undergo a DNA test. Genetic testing is an easy and painless way to determine the child-father relationship and usually done by a cheek swab. When the DNA test results are returned to the court, the judge may use these to determine paternity.
