We offer these types of DNA Tests in Indianapolis, Indiana

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:

arrow_right_alt
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
arrow_right_alt
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
arrow_right_alt
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 Indianapolis DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Indianapolis is No Mean City

According to the City of Indianapolis' website, the long-ago city resident and U.S. President Benjamin Harrison referred to the city as "No Mean City." The phrase was inscribed on the cornerstone of Indy's old City Hall in 1909. Residents say the phrase means that Indianapolis is friendly, welcoming, and better than average.

A Dark Secret Creates New Family Bonds With DNA Testing

The city of Indianapolis made headlines in the DNA testing world when, in 2017, local resident Heather Woock found herself in the middle of a strange-but-true saga involving an Indianapolis-based fertility doctor. After receiving countless messages from strangers claiming to be half-siblings, it was discovered that the doctor, Donald Cline, used his own sperm to impregnate his patients, resulting in him fathering at least 50 different children! This was discovered after these individuals took at-home DNA tests and found that there were others who had the same DNA profiles.

Although there was understandably a great deal of shock as each of these individuals learned the truth about their parentage, many of these half-siblings have made connections with one another and are embracing their new families.

DNA Testing Results in Finding a Long Lost Family

Sixty-five-year-old Nicholas Powell, who was adopted in Indiana on the day he was born, had always wondered about his birth family. He decided not to pursue his curiosity out of respect for his adoptive parents. However, after they passed, he began tracing his family history using DNA tests and his recently released birth records. At first, he didn't have much luck, but a big break came when he located a first cousin living in Indianapolis. He was then able to find several more family members, including a sister named Jennifer Wetzel.

The two have been communicating regularly and have now met in person. They're thrilled to have the opportunity to explore their new bond and say it was well worth the wait. Powell is now sharing his story in hopes that more states will begin opening up adoption records which, in combination with DNA testing, will allow for more stories with these types of happy endings.
