DNA Test - Kettering, Ohio

Kettering OH DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Kettering, Ohio 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:

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 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 Kettering DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Establishing paternity in Kettering, OH

If you are an unmarried parent in Ohio and you wish to establish paternity, there are three ways of doing so:

Acknowledgment of Paternity Affidavit - This method involves a mutual agreement where both parents sign a form confirming that the alleged father is indeed the biological father. This acknowledgment legally establishes him as the child's father.
Court Order - In situations where there's uncertainty or dispute, parents can turn to the legal system. The Juvenile court can determine paternity.
Administrative Order of Paternity - Unmarried parents can also establish paternity through the Child Support Enforcement Agency, which can issue an order of paternity if it is proven that the man is the birth father.

Usually, when courts or child support agencies are involved in the establishment process, DNA tests will be required. If you need a reliable partner to conduct paternity tests, you can turn to Health Street for quick and painless DNA testing. We offer DNA home kits and legal paternity tests. Our tests are 99.9% accurate and non-invasive.

After adoption records were unsealed in Ohio, Pat, a 58-year-old from Kettering, retrieved his original birth certificate and took a DNA test. He initially aimed to discover any hereditary medical issues to inform his children and grandchildren. The DNA test led him to his biological mother, resulting in an emotional phone conversation. He also learned he was born out of wedlock and had a half-sister. Although his biological father had passed away in the 90s, Pat seized the opportunity to reconnect with his biological mother.
