DNA Test - Idaho Falls, Idaho

Idaho Falls ID DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Idaho Falls, Idaho 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 Idaho Falls DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Idaho Falls, Idaho - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Idaho Falls, ID

In Idaho Falls, unmarried parents can easily establish paternity at the hospital after the baby is born. If the alleged father is absent or they have any reason they did not want to sign the Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) form, parents can do it later and get it from Vital Statistics or Child Support Services. An AOP should not be signed if either party is unsure about paternity.

When parents disagree about paternity, they often choose to go to court instead of signing the AOP. Either parent can file an action called Complaint for Paternity with the court. Then, the judge can rule whether the alleged father is the child's legal father. This often requires DNA tests to have undoubtful proof. If the judge does establish paternity, the court will issue an Order of Filiation, which makes it official.

DNA tests help reconnect sisters after 28 years

Lisa's story began with mystery. Found as a baby near San Francisco and later adopted, she always had questions about her biological origins. Hoping for answers, Lisa opted for a DNA test. She was in for a surprise when it led her to Wendy, her sister. Wendy, too, was adopted, but she had a bit more insight into their shared lineage. Years earlier, Wendy learned of a brother but hadn't pursued the connection. Discovering Lisa, however, prompted a heartwarming reunion. The sisters chose Idaho Falls as their meeting point and planned a later trip to Yellowstone.

During their time together, the similarities became apparent: birthdays almost a year apart, the same middle name, a mutual love for the banjo, photography, outdoor activities, and a shared affinity for animals.

The significance of DNA testing

Our DNA testing can conclusively determine relationships, like identifying a child's biological father. For those seeking clarity or wishing to strengthen family bonds, DNA testing stands as a valuable and reliable resource. Sign up with a trusted partner like Health Street today.
