DNA Test - Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Lancaster PA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lancaster, Pennsylvania 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 Lancaster DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Establishing paternity in Lancaster, PA

In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, many unmarried parents often ponder the steps to formally establish paternity. There's a straightforward process for those who are certain about the child's father. They can sign the Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity, a common form usually available at hospitals shortly after a child's birth. Once completed and filed with the Department of Public Welfare, the man is officially recognized as the child's legal father. It's important to note that just by establishing paternity, it doesn't grant the father automatic custody, visitation rights, or child support obligations. It merely gives him or the mother the ability to request these rights through the legal court if necessary.

However, situations aren't always so straightforward. If there's disagreement or uncertainty about paternity, either parent has the option to go to the court. The court, ensuring the child's best interest, often turns to DNA testing to clarify matters.
